Customer Question
I was in QT...
I was in QT parking lot going south (parking spaces and store on right, gas pumps on left) driving slowly looking for a handicapped space, when from my left side (going in same direction) driver of a Ford Econoline made an unexpected, sudden right turn in front of me into a parking space. My little 2003 Toyota Prius hit the truck's right rear door hinge and smashed my left front bumper, headlamp and fender. No physical nor auto damages to his truck. Liberty Mutual's claims adjuster rate my repairs at $1487.30 and Liberty Mutual refuses to pay, saying the other driver gave a different story than mine. He was not written a citation because it was "on private property". I am 78 and going through severe mental anguish from this.

Hi - my name is ***** ***** I'll be glad to assist.

If you have insurance, it should cover the damage.....and if your insurance company wants to go after the other driver's company, then it can do so.

Along those lines, you may want to ask your insurance company to ask the gas station for any surveillance videos from the date this occurred to prove your position.

Lawyer: Roger, Attorney replied 2 years ago

If you could get surveillance footage, it should help prove your claim and convince the other driver's insurance company to pay.

Lawyer: Roger, Attorney replied 2 years ago

You should stay on your insurance company about pursuing this in order to get your vehicle repaired and also to allow your insurer to recover from the other driver's insurance via a subrogation claim.

The gas station may require you to issue a subpoena in order to obtain the video footage.....and if that is the case....you may have to file a small claims case against the other driver (as a subpoena cannot be issued unless there is an active case.

Lawyer: Roger, Attorney replied 2 years ago

Before filing suit, you may be able to tell the insurance company that you've requested the surveillance video from the gas station and that could make Liberty and its insured change their tune about how they say the accident occurred.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
