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....
