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.
