Yes, you read the title right – I'm likely getting sued. The sad part is, its by an insurance scammer. About a year and a half ago, I tapped a car in front of me during a traffic jam. I asked her if she was okay and asked her if she needed an ambulance two different times. She swore she was fine and didn't need an ambulance or want the police called because she just wanted to take her friend to work. Five minutes after the accident I called my insurance company – she had already called them complaining about how she was hurt! I knew I was in for trouble then. Wouldn't you know it...months later I find out she had rotator cuff surgery and is blaming it on the accident. That is a pile of bull, all the accident did was put a scratch in her bumper. No damage to my car, no airbags deployed, etc. Thankfully my insurance believes me and isn't wanting to give her a cent. So, I got the letter from them last week stating that I'm likely to be served lawsuit papers soon and to contact them when I get them. In a way I want it to go to court so that she can be laughed out of the court room!

I think I'd always call the police, just in case.

I'm home so rarely, I doubt they can find me to serve me :P Anyways, there is a court case lookup for my state which I will be checking often, I will have at least a few days notice before a process server would show up. It wouldn't be the people suing serving me but an independent process server coming with the papers.

Oh man, I hate when money hungry people do things like that. That is awful. I'm sorry.

I think your insurance company or lawyer needs to check to see if this person has sued other people in the past 10 years or so and why. If they are scammers. normally they have sued other people to. Thats how they get caught.

It does seem like she is trying to scam you. So glad your insurance company is going to help you with this.
