during a heavy rain storm. A Jeta pulled out in front of me splashing a large amount of water onto the windshield. Causing no vision of the road. I put on the wipers and the Jeta had braked to let another car into the travel lane. I braked and hydroplaned into the car at 10 mph. The Jeta was a rental car. We got out to asses damage and found one small buff about a 1/2 inch into the on the plastic bumper liner of the Jeta and one small scratch on the hood of my car.
The police where called and no citations where written. The other driver admitted to breaking abruptly to the officer. The officer left with out giving a police report (but filed one). The Jeta filed a claim almost 60 days later at my fault; for a full rear end repair and time lost. Am I at fault? I have one picture available.
