Last question. The accident was not a major one. According to the police report no one was hurt, there was no ambulance, nobody reported any lacerations or fractures etc.. THe damage to their car was close to to 2000 dollar or so.
THe only issue is that, I tried to avoid complete impact with the car during the accident, so I went off to the side when impact was imminent. THe police made it sound like that I went off to the side as part of trying to overtake him and move onto the highway. I filed my own version of the accident report saying that I moved off to side to avoid hitting the driver completely.
Anyway, in your expert opinion will I be sued beyond my limits?
Can you be sued? Sure. Is it likely? Probably not. Soft tissue damage is hard to prove and show, but unlike a broken bone, bruise, or a laceration, is not deemed to be serious, merely uncomfortable. This is why sing you above that limit is highly unlikely. It is possible, but highly unlikely.
