I got in a car wreck today. I was driving along a straight road, I never turned or anything. I was in the right of way. There was a side street to my left, and she turned left into traffic, trying to go the direction I was going. Instead of turning into the middle lane, and waiting for me to pass, she came all the way into my lane, and we collided sides. We called the police and filed, etc etc. She kept telling the police she didn't know who's fault it was, because "neither one of us" was paying attention. Well, I was, and after she left, I told the police what REALLY happened. I honked at her and even slowed down before the wreck, because I didn't know if she was coming into my lane or the middle lane.
Afterwards, I came home, and my husband went to the insurance company, and said she had already filed with her insurance company and was filing for me to pay, since it was "my fault". What do I do? Illustration below!

Get the police report and let your insurance company handle it. They have lawyers to handle this stuff. The police aren't as "stupid" as they sometimes look. (S)he can look at the accident site and tell who was were, when and why. I would write it all down while it is fresh so that you can refer back to those little details that we all forget. Go out and take pictures of the site and make detailed notes. That's what we did when a woman hit my son and tried to say it was his fault. Her insurance ended up paying but we referred to his notes several times.
