Got in a car accident several weeks ago. A guy ran me off the road, forced me up a curb, which caused damage to my car. He spoke no English, and I hesitated calling the police when I initially saw no damage to my car. I took his license info and left. At home I found damage – that slight stuff to the frame that’s barely noticeable, but can cause thousands of dollars to repair.
So I called my insurance agent, who rightfully scolded me for not calling the police. When I filed a report police report after the fact, but the guy lied responded to his insurance company and said I ran him off the road. No witnesses (except his other people in his car who didn’t speak any English either). So I’m out the money I should have – I have to pay my deductible because it is considered a “No-fault”
I’m having trouble letting it go – just like I did with a lot in the marriage. I wish there was some magical way to do that. Perhaps its prayer, perhaps in time. My agent says I should be thankful I didn’t get hurt. But a desire for justice keeps surfacing -the anger remains – how do I deal with that?.
