My name is gabe and I got in a car wreck about 4 months ago

Customer Question

Hi my name is ***** ***** I got in a car wreck about 4 months ago and very stupidly did not have insurance. I was driving a small car and was t boned by a big pickup truck but it was my fault because I turned when unsafe. I am already working on clearing my record with the state with defensive driving and proving I have insurance on my dads old truck, however the driver of the truck that hit me's insurance company just informed me I owe 12 thousand in damages which is quite alarming because the damages on his pickup were quite minimal compared to my totaled car I know I need to pay him back but I am having a hard time believing it would cost this much and they are just trying to take advantage of me. I would greatly appreciate some help with this!
