The farmer is saying his cow has the right of way. It was night and the cow was black. I only have liability insurance. So I have no vehicle to get anywhere like work. And the police report says I was doing nothing wrong.

A: Yes you have a case against the farmer. It is the farmer's fault. He should turn it over to his business or homeowner's insurance. If he or she fails to do so, a lawsuit would be proper.
