The insurance company said they’re customer saying I hit them so they’re taking his side no matter what also because Idont have insurance I’m automatically at fault. He backed out and hit me though.

A: A Louisiana attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for four weeks. You raise a valid point in your defense - you should discuss this further with your carrier, and/or a Louisiana attorney. Good luck
