What can I do if I was rear ended and the other insurance company won't take fault?

I got rear ended in February. The other driver was speeding, driving while under the influence of drugs, and was arrested on scene. Initially the other insurance company told me they won't take responsibility and claimed it was my fault because I cut him off. I didn't cut him off. I sent them the police report and they said it had no merit because the police got there after the accident happened so they don't know what happened. Three weeks later they sent a appraiser out to look at my car. He told me they would cover everything including a rental and I have an email saying all I need to do is bring his estimate to the garage of my choice and it will be taken care of. I brought my car to the garage and now they told the garage they haven't taken fault yet and are still investigating.

Report the loss to your own insurance carrier, they will hopefully cover all of the property damages. If you sustained any injuries, retain all medical documentation concerning that injury and seek out a personal injury attorney in your area.

If you have full coverage insurance then turn the claim over to them to get the property damage repaired. Then hire an experienced personal injury attorney in your area and file suit. If the facts are as black and white as you have stated, then there is no point in wasting time on an unreasonable adjuster in my opinion.
