Question: I unfortunately was driving around the block from my house & it looked like a car was pulling to park on the right hand side of the road. I moved to the left to pass her and she ran right into the side of me. I got out of the car to talk to her and she was irate asking me why I was going to the left side of her. I told her it looked like she was pulling to the right. She insisted she had her blinker on, but I sure didn't see it. Her neighbors came out and said she had her blinker on, but I doubt they really saw if she did or not. They are going to say anything because they're her friend and neighbor. What's the chance of two neighbors seeing all of this at the same time living in different houses? I decided I was ganged up on so I told her i would pay to have her car fixed. There was a little mark and it looks like the wheel frame got a mark in it also. I said I thought it might cost $1000.00 but she said it would probably be WAY more than that. I just finally told her to find out what it's going to be & I'll pay her. I asked her to please not get our insurance companies involved because it would be more expensive and be on our records. She insisted that the two car seats in the back of her car were very expensive and by law I will have to replace those too. There's nothing wrong with them, you've got to be kidding me. I told her I'd get her new car seats if she wants. I asked her if she would like to look at the damage done to my car and she said she didn't care what happened to mine. I assured her I'd pay & gave her my name and license number and phone number. Because my phone number is easy she didn't believe I was giving her a correct number.(LOL) That is my number, and she saw my name and my drivers license, and she has the license plate number on my car. I will pay, what do you think this will cost? Maybe $2,000.00?? I'll give it to her just get rid of her. I was willing to give it to right then & there. Good Lord! I can't stop crying. I don't think it was my fault but I don't know what else to do. Do I really have to replace two car seats in the back of her car? The damage to her car is in the front side no where near those car seats. Good grief. I was in another fender bender two months ago & my insurance is fighting it out with them. This is why I don't want to turn into them. Both times they aren't going to believe it wasn't my fault. I just want to make it go away. I'm shaking and can't stop crying. She is unreasonable but I'm willing to pay her money to leave me ALONE. I for sure don't want to tell her about the other accident. I'm starting to doubt myself now being in two different ones so close to each other.
