I was in a car accident where the other girl ran the red light and totaled my van. Two witnesses stopped and gave statements that the other girl ran a red light, so the cop cited her off of that. Now the other girls insurance is saying the witnesses changed their story and that I ran the red light. I did not run the red light and my insurance has not heard of this statement change from the witnesses and the police report has not changed. I stopped at the light, then proceeded when it turned green and she came out of nowhere. Do insurance companies really lie like this? I will be getting a lawyer, but will we take this to court? It seems like it would be easier to have the 2 witnesses, the cop and the other party all in one room rather than talking through the phone.The police report states that two witnesses gave statements to the cop saying I had the right away and she ran the red light. I also have a personal injury claim and so do the other two people I had in the vehicle with me. I suffered burns and bruises on my legs, and my spine is messed up. How long do these cases usually take? Can I tell my lawwer I just would rather take this to court?
