I have not spoken to any lawyers who have not wanted to take my case; I am having trouble finding a small claims
lawyer that will represent me in Thompson court (Ny, sullivan county)More detailed information about the claim itself:
Originally, I had difficulty obtaining a police report because they were waiting for evidence from the surveillance camera at the grocery store camera. For a reason that was not explained, they could not get hold of it and I was given a report.
The truck and my small car were stopped at a red light and the truck made a right turn onto my car (I was to the left of him). I beeped and beeped and he drove away. The police caught up and he claims he heard nothing and didn't realize. Furthermore, the highway was a one lane and I pulled up next to him and he did not notice.
In the police report, the picture depicts my car next to the back half of the truck.
My claim is that he should pay some of my damages based on-
If he cannot hear regular driving
sounds while in his truck, that is unsafe.
Even if he could not hear me, he should have felt the hit
I disagree with the depiction and believe that my car was next to the front half of the truck and my proof is my damages: the damages were my rear tire was scratched open, a scratch and denting along the entire side, and a blasted side mirror.Had my car been at the back half of the truck, his turn would have only nipped the front of my vehicle.
This hit took a long time and he should have noticed something
People came out of their houses and out of the closed grocery store to ask if everything was all right so I do not believe he did not hear the sounds. Thus his driving away is an indication of his guilt.Would these explanations stand in court? What do you think?
