I live in Oregon and two years ago on July 6, 2015 i was involved in a collision.The scenario was, that there was a red light at an intersection. The cars in front of me had come to a stop, as did i. Then a car came up behind me in the right lane and stopped. Because we were in the right lane, someone ended up turning right on the red which is legal to do. All the cars in that lane moved up a car length. When it came to my turn to move forward, I did so and stopped and the lady behind did the same but didn't stop, resulting in her rearending me. The force of the impact caused my vehicle the colide with the vehicle in front of me.Three vehicles are now blocking the right lane. I was the car in the middle and didn't get out immediately as I was in a bit of shock. This happened in front of a business and an employee from the business ran out to check and see if everyone was okay. He knocked on the driver side window to check on me.Basically, everyone was okay, no one was transported, but there was some complaint from one driver that her neck was hurting. Police and medics were also called to the scene, no one was cited, everyone was insured.
(Note, I was driving a vehicle through zipcar, a ride sharing company and was fully insured.)After the investigation and I do was exchanged each driver drove away. The lady that had caused the collision her insurance called me later to interview me and begin an investigation to see if their driver was liable.After concluding the investigation they stated they were taking liability for the loss and began working on a settlement. The settlement was agreed upon and I received payment.Now two years later, I received a subpenoa to give my deposition as a witness to the plaintiffs attorney. The plaintiff who's name is ***** ***** the party my vehicle was forced into. The defendant is the one who descended me, her name is Esmeralda.Apparently Tammy is suing Esmeralda. I called the plaintiffs law firm to get a better idea as to what was going on. Apparently, Esmeralda isstating the accident was caused by my wrong doing, although I have documentation that she was at fault and her insurance paid for the expenses.I'm not sure what I need to do in this case.

Should I reach out to a lawyer since I have documents proving that I was not at fault?
Lawyer: Maverick, Attorney replied 8 months ago

If you have been served with a deposition subpoena it indicates that you must shown up to have your deposition taken at the time and place shown on the subpoena; or file a timely motion to quash the subpoena and a motion for protective order so that you do not end up being sanctioned by the judge. It appears that the lawyer is wanting to find out what you know as an eye witness and to have your testimony recorded while under oath.

I basically knew what the subpenoa meant but thank you for taking g the time to answer that. I think I may to refer to an actual lawyer within my county to get my questioned amswered.
Lawyer: Maverick, Attorney replied 8 months ago

What exactly is your legal question? You asked if you should reach out to the lawyer; but the answer I provided is telling you that simply reaching out to the lawyer is of little use since there is a subpoena that you MUST comply with or file specific legal documents to protect yourself if you cannot attend. What did I miss?

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.

Hello, I was involved in an Auto Collision on Feb. 9 involving another car. The occurred in a private property shopping center parking lot. My insurance company just e-mailed my and said they are (me) accepting damages and liability. One alarming element is at this intersection where the accident occurred their are NO stop or yield signage except for cars entering the parking lot from the main street??? The day after the accident I sent my Insurance company an e-mail describing my recollection, with several photos and a graphic depicting the incident. I had the auto towed to a collision center and their "estimate" was over $15,000 and them deemed the car as a total loss???. But talking to them earlier they said my car did NOT meet the total loss minimum for the car due to its current value (2011 Lexus LS460). I have never had a major accident or a situation like this before. I don't know if I "need" an attorney to work with me against my "own" insurance company? … read more
