A: An Arizona attorney could answer best, but your question remains open for two weeks. You could file suit, or you could retain an Arizona attorney to do so. Those are two primary options if you believe the matter won't be resolved by offering additional evidence. Your post does not mention injuries. I hope there were none, but if the claim is purely property damage, it's possible that some law firms would not be able to handle on a contingency basis. Instead, they might charge hourly. Whatever route you choose, save that video because if the other side turns around and sues you for property damage (or bodily injury), it could support your position that you were not at fault. Good luck
