If no one was injured, and there wasn't significant damage to cars, and you don't have real assets, and you don't have insurance, you're pretty much in the clear but I'd still hire a lawyer. What they're trying to do is go after your insurance company or your assets - if you don't have either, it's not worth their time and they'll go away.

An aside, I've never heard of a wreck where no one was at fault. Are you sure that's true?
FYI...………………...if you have no assets they can garnish your paycheck until the settlement is paid in full.

GET A LAWYER! Whether it was your fault or not they are trying to make it that way and you were driving a vehicle you were NOT authorized to drive and had NO insurance.

I was the only person injured in the accident (fractured my arm) yes there was significant damage done to the rental car. It was totaled. Let me be clear the other drive HIT ME!!!!! I have been trying to find and attorney to take my case but its been over a year since this happened and thought everything was fine. The rental car was covered and fixed, so really don't understand why I'm being sued.
This is the last post by OP from 2 days ago and the odds are (just like her lack of Insurance) she'll never be back to respond to any sage advice.

I have. They have been disjointed and not answered any of the questions posed. I've also seen no acceptance of guilt, so can only view her somewhat incoherent story as an attempt for sympathy.

Why do you assume she's guilty when she said she wasn't? It's entirely possible the other driver lied, that happens all the time. Just because the insurance company is going to try to get money doesn't automatically mean that the OP actually did something wrong. I'm not saying she didn't, just that there isn't sufficient information to know.

She is here for help, not to grovel or admit guilt to you. Also you should'n't expect it since she's stated she is innocent.
Another driver caused the accident. I guess you missed that, too? let's lay off the blame game and false accusations and provide what the thread is intended for, info about whether she could be sued.

Maybe, but given spelling, grammatical, and usage errors one's first thought was OP is not an American citizen. Someone who was educated elsewhere and learned English as a second language. Only other explanation would be a very poor education, but we're not on that right now.


A person unfamiliar with American legal system might naturally turn to the internet for advice on such a serious matter instead of seeking assistance via proper channels. If any of us received such a notice from Allstate or whatever we likely would contact our attorney, and or at least realize that sort of advice is necessary. This or at very least turn to an older family member (parent, grandparent, uncle, etc..) or even sibling for advice. Anything but write long disjointed missives on a public forum for "advice".


OP's story is suspect, and subsequent posts evasive. Basic questions that want answers are still unknown, and even if the blanks were filled in there is nothing anyone here could say that already hasn't been said; *Get An Attorney*.

I didn't miss it. I was answering her question (which I quoted including highlighting the relevant parts -- I guess you missed THAT) about WHY she was being sued.

Several people had asked her why she was driving when she hadn't told the rental car company that she would be a driver. She never answered that. It's odd that she doesn't realize that could be a problem.

No self-righteousness -- just unanswered questions from the OP. And she clearly isn't going to come back.
