On March 7 a woman turned left striking my car in the middle of the intersection. It happened 40 minutes before sunset. We both got to the intersection at the same time. No blinkers were seen. We both proceeded forward when BAM she turn left into my car. It is not totaled. It took the police almost 3 hours to get work the crash. The 80 year old woman who struck me clearly did not see me in the intersection. She told the officer that I ran the stop sign. So, no tickets were given to either.
The next day her insurance
called to settle. The assessed my car and it is totaled due to the age of the car at 2450 dollars was the pay out to me. But when the insurance company got the police report and saw no ticket was given they refused to pay. Saying it was both our faults.
The Texas law clearly states when 2 cars are in the intersection at the same time the car not turning has the right of way. There are no scratches on my car showing I did not speed through the intersection. I filed a small claims
After filing I started getting letters from Allstate attorney. She stated that the defendant "prays" all I receive is peace.
We finally got a court date. Now I am getting all kinds of stuff wanting information about my employment for the last 10 years, have I had any surgeries over the last 10 years, have I had or any family member had wrecks and when and on and on.
What should I do? I just want the law to stand and she should not have turned into my car. My dear sweet car that I purchased and babied since it sat brand new on the showroom floor. I am out a car and need the money to help get a replacement.
Am I going to lose because I cannot afford an attorney?
