Insurance company deciding fault/ how to fight it
My husband was involved in an accident where he was unfairly ticketed. He was ticketed based solely on the statements of the other two drivers involved in the accident. An uninsured motorist hit my husband's car, and my husband's car hit another car (after being hit by the uninsured motorist).
The uninsured motorist and other driver got together and blamed by husband for the accident (obviously because he uninsured motorist did not want to pay out of pocket for my damages and the other car's damages and the other driver was probably concerned that his car would not get fixed). My husband got the ticket dismissed in court, but the insurance company already paid the uninsured motorist (because he got an attorney and intimidated the insurance company) and paid the other driver.
They paid them before my ticket was dismissed in court. They didn't want to wait to see how the court hearing would turn out. It took 4 months in court. How do we fight this? It's not fair that by paying out, the insurance company decided the fault.
