Thank you so much for using JustAnswer.com. I truly aim to please you as a customer, but please keep in mind that I do not know what you already know or don't know, or with what you need help, unless you tell me. If I did not answer the question you thought you were asking, please respond with the specific question you wanted answered. PLEASE use REPLY to EXPERT if you would like more information or if you feel something was not included in your answer.
Kindly remember the ONLY WAY experts receive any credit at all for spending time with customers is if you click on OK, GOOD or EXCELLENT SERVICE even though you have made a deposit or are a subscription customer.

Also remember, sometimes the law does not support what we want it to support, but that is not the fault of the person answering the question, so please be courteous.
Please clarify false claims. So I may better provide you with relevant information. I did make a claim to my insurance company but, I called them back and made the correction within the same day and I made no claim with the other persons insurance. I know that is probably irrelevant. And that I am screwed. Is there anything you can recommend I do. I am very afraid because I have worked so hard my whole life only to do this one stupid act that from what it sounds like may jeopardize everything I have worked for. Please if there is any advice you can further give it would be more than appreciated. I am very frighten at the moment.
The accident was neither of our faults. It was rush hour on a very busy highway off ramp when a large green (I believe is was a Silverado) did't see me and was about to side swipe me. In avoiding the side swipe I rear ended the other driver. Is that of any significance? Please be brutally honest: is this something I should be losing sleep over? As in on the "Oh, Crap" meter "1" being lowest "10" being the highest where would this fall? And should I consider turning myself into the police? Or wait and see what happens before taking action?
