I got in a car accident 2 years ago. I hit someone from behind. The bend before the light had a neon sign flashing to let you know if the light was green or red. It obvi was a covered light. I was coming around the bend doing the speed limit. The light was green. The SECOND it turned yellow the car in front of me SLAMMED on the brakes. I slamed on mine but due to rain i was not able to stop completely. I hit the car. I came to find out that the person driving was from the UK and did NOT have an international drivers lisence. Which makes it illegal for him to drive in the States. He also told the cop that "where he comes from" they STOP on yellow! Well thats not how it is here! Im so pissed and found out today that my insurance almost doubled. The car they were driving was prob worth about $7,000. Well they got $7,050 from my insurance company for this! The only damage done was to the trunk.It would not close. What can I do to fight this?? I know that hitting someone makes it may fault. I get that. But if that person was illegal can I fight it or is that issue between him and the country/state?? TIA!Answer Question
You can appeal it with your insurance company I believe. Was he sited for driving with out a licence?? That will help your case.
