i was making a legal left on a green left arrow, so the other person had to have run a red light to hit the side of my car with the front of theirs. but theyre claiming that i was the one who ran a red to my insurance adjuster. i couldnt believe it when the adjuster told me this; after he hit us, he looked ashamed and wouldnt say much. at the scene, this guy even asked me what had happened, i explained he hit us when we were making a turn on a green arrow and he didnt deny it, he stayed quiet.
there was no police report taken -- the police only gave us papers with basic info we couldve gotten ourselves. this person is also claiming to have a witness that corroborates their story, but this fake witness is a liar, and they werent present when the accident took place. i called the police right away and my wife actively sought witnesses with no luck. i did see he was on the phone for a long time after the accident, and another guy came up to him at least 30 min after the fact. im guessing this is the so-called witness. is there anything i can do?
can i get a lie detector test? get his cell phone records to see if this fake witness is the one he contacted after he hit us? im really disheartened by the fact that what really happened may not matter at all. and this guy might get away with not having to pay for his carelessness. is there anything i can do? i called a lawyer and they said that because no police report was taken, it would just be my word against his.
