I was driving uninsured and unlicensed (is that even a word?)
Anyways, I pulled out without looking at hit a Civic at an intersection. It was 100% my fault… I admitted that. I checked to see if the lady driving the Civic was alright and she said she was.
Now I get a call from her insurance company saying I need to pay for medical damages.
I got a $1500 ticket for driving without license and then I got to pay for damages to my dads car and also her car. My dad only makes $500/month… and I barely make anything with my job.
Should I take it to court? What should I do?
This is certainly a tough situation you are in. I actually don’t think you will make it far in court (if the case even gets there)… it’s pretty much an open and closed case. But I do suggest finding a lawyer. You need the lawyer to do everything he can to protect you.
Other than that, I suggest getting an extra job. It sounds like you’ll need to get into a payment agreement with her insurance company… and it will probably take you a while to pay off.
I hope you learned your lesson. Never drive without insurance!
