Here we go again...  
I just received a letter today from my car insurance.  The wonderful young woman with whom I had the car accident on December 1st - the wonderful young woman who CAUSED the accident and is TOTALLY AT FAULT for it - may try to sue me. 

I am just so lucky, aren't I.

The technical specialist from my car insurance tells me she (the girl) has retained an attorney to pursue a personal injury claim.  Apparently there hasn't been a lawsuit filed just yet, but it's "possible" that I will be served with a lawsuit.  It was just a vague letter telling me to forward any legal documents to them as soon as I get them so that they'll have time to file an answer on my behalf.



Okay, so I probably shouldn't really worry much about this; the insurance company is supposed to take care of it all.  It's just the fact that the possibility is out there that has me all angry and worried.  I did nothing wrong.  She is at fault and I have witnesses to that fact.  But yet she is still trying to get money out of me any which way.  Well, sweetie, maybe that was your fault for driving like a stupid, reckless maniac and trying to jump a light?  Maybe it was your fault that you didn't get collision coverage because you didn't think you'd get into an accident or because you wanted to save a few dollars?

This girl was not hurt at all.  The guy who rode in the back seat complained of his back hurting or being sore and he did go in an ambulence, but he didn't even seem that hurt.  They are doing this more than two months after the accident took place?

Okay - I guess I am just incredibly naive.  I know there are a lot of crooks out there and people who are just willing to sue because they can't admit that they make mistakes and don't want to take responsibility for their own actions.  I guess I just never thought it would happen to me. 

I need to stop worrying about this and do something to get my mind off it.  I just wish I didn't have to, though.  On the up side, I saw some good friends who live about 3 hours away from me and they took me out to lunch for my birthday (which isn't until the 25th, but this was the only weekend they could come down). 

But still, there are times when I really hate people....

I sure hope as hell that you are filing a counter-suit against her. What a bitch.

I know it seems really scary, but that's why we have insurance. She is probably looking for 'go away money'. They may just offer her a couple of thousand to just do that. People will do anything for money nowadays.

I know it's hard, but try to stay calm and to forget about it. In the end, karma will bite her in the ass big time!

Thanks for the hugs! Yeah, the first thing I get from her I'm sending to my agent so we can counter-sue.

I guess I did overreact a little there - and I guess it was inevitable seeing as how she was trying to escape blame for it. Oh, well, hopefully things will work out fine.
