I was involved in an automobile accident approximately a month ago. A truck, who had been parallel parked, turned out into the road as i passed by; the truck hit the rear passenger door/wheel of my vehicle and it seems to be a pretty clear cut case, liability-wise. However, the other driver's insurance company has told me they cannot contact the driver to get his statement, thus delaying the necessary repairs to my vehicle. I do not have collision coverage, so there are no alternatives. I am a law student and am familiar with the process of filing a claim in small claims court. Should I notify the insurance company that I will file a claim against them/their insured driver? I don't feel the company has put forth a reasonable effort and I want to "wake them up" and advance the case forward.
