Both cars were totaled. I had a green light. The only thing I can determine is that I was driving slowly and while proceeding through the intersection the light was changed from green to yellow and she proceeded into the intersection. I did hit her. As I said no one was hurt. There was a police report, which states 3 to 4 hours after the accident someone came to the police dept and said they saw the accident and that I went through a red light. So my ins. pd for the cars. Now she is seeking money for soft tissue damage to her. My ins has a limit of liability of 15,000. And they want this paper notarized stating I do not have an umbrella policy or excess liability ins. coverage. I am wondering if I should get an attorney or just send in the paper. After I sign can she proceed with trying to get more?
