I was backing out a parking spot when someone came flying around a corner. I stopped my vehicle & she hit my rear end. I immedietly pulled forward and got out to speak with her & her husband. She said that she was sorry & that she was going to fast & looking somewhere else. The police would not come to the scene. I got a copy of her insurance & a signed statement from her stating that she was going too fast & not paying attention. Which she did. I took pictures of her damage & mine & got her phone number. While doing this she told me that I didn't need to worry about it & she knew it was her fault. I called her insurance & filed a claim which they denied. They stated that she said I hit her & I pressured her into writing the statement. What are my rights? Do I have enough evidence?So, she stated it was her fault. I had her write that and sign it. I collected her insurance and mine. Took pictures of both. She stated that she was going 15 mph in a small private parking lot. (Too fast!) The damage to my vehicle seems obvious when you look at it that she was moving and I wasn't. I had no witnesses, her husband was with her. She told me that I was doing more that I needed to & then turned around and did exactly what I thought she would. I called my insurance and they are going to look at it too, but why should I have to pay a $500 deductable and claim it? I did NOTHING wrong.
