I was t-boned and I am positive my light was green, however, the police report stated that I was at fault.

Asked over 1 year ago - Las Vegas, NV

I was sober, had no medication in my system and I was not on my phone & I had my seat belt on. I have an excellent driving record and I am so very sure my light was green which is why I proceeded. I have sustained some soft tissue injuries and I was taken to the hospital so I have medical bills as well. This is my very first accident and I don't know what to do or where to turn.

    Answered . You should speak with an attorney as soon as possible to discuss your situation. Were there any witnesses to the collision? There is a chance, albeit slim sometimes, that a nearby business may have surveillance video of the collision. However, they usually only keep the video for a short period of time. Don't wait!

    Answered . There are certain steps we could take to try and prove that you are not at fault, although overcoming the "police report" hurdle is rather difficult.

    For example: eye witnesses, surveillance cameras, accident reconstruction specialists, etc. could all be key in proving your case.

    You should consult an attorney.

    Answered . A police report is not the only evidence in a personal injury. However, if you review the report carefully, there should be witnesses listed. It may be a good idea to have someone call them and investigate the case to verify what they saw. It is possible the police made a mistake, although unlikely, it does occur.
