Hello . I just need some advice . I recently got into an accident on Saturday , 2 - 9 - 13 . I was pulling out of an apartment driveway . There were a line of cars at a stop light , and I was trying to make a left . I was yielding , and one of the drivers in the line saw me waiting and waved at me to go . When I pulled out of the driveway , someone had swerved around the cars that were stopped , in an attempt to cut everyone off . In doing so , she crashed into the driver's side door . She assured me that she had insurance , so I collected her info . When I had given my statement to the adjuster , he had assured me that I was not at fault and called it a " 50 / 50 " . They said that she would be responsible for half of my deductible . Now , they're saying that it's MY fault and that I'm responsible for 1990s .Sorry, there was an error when I had submitted this. I was fine with the 50/50 decision. This meant that I would be responsible for half of the deductible. The issue is, when they found out that her insurance was cancelled, they went back on what they had said and said that I am liable and that, even if I have uninsured driver coverage, I'm 100% responsible for the deductible. In your opinion, is it worth contacting a lawyer? If so, should I go after my insurance or the driver? I also want to add that I did proceed with caution. When I looked to the left, there was no one except for the drivers that were stopped and cars that were parked. I had already pulled out when she had hit me.
