Shades of Grey: Accident

Some situations are viewed in black and white; right and wrong. Yet, many people think situations also have a grey area where solutions are not so easily discerned. This is not just about the choices people make, but the thought process they go through to arrive at their decisions.

Submitted for Your Discussion & Consideration

You’re driving through a storm with driving rain. A tree falls down in front of your car, and a car following behind you runs into the back of your car. Because of the heavy rain, you exchange information with the other driver and you both leave, rather than calling, and waiting for, the police.

The next day, you contact the other driver’s insurance company. Not only are they not aware of the accident, but their client swears that he was never in an accident with you and doesn’t know why you have his information.

What do you think of the other driver’s denial? Do you feel that you have any legal recourse, without any evidence of the accident and no police report? Do you think you would try contacting the police? Or would you call your own insurance company and have them cover your auto repairs rather than fight to get to the truth?
