Glad the injuries weren't too serious. Hope you are up and about soon.
I got grilled by a car that ran a stop sign today. She didn't even slowdown or anything, she totally ran the stop sign.
then call a lawyer.
and if you are in utah like me, then you know who to call... that 'one call, thats all guy' ! in fact, i'll give you his number 800-404-9000.
remember though, you are not taking her to the cleaners, you are taking her insurance company. her rates will go up anyways no matter how bad they get cleaned it will only go up so much.I understand that you may not care to take this woman to the cleaners (then again if someone did that to me I would) but make sure you're properly represented.
And that's my 2 cents,
You are far too light in your estimation of weight of a SUV, it is more like #5-6000, not #2,000. We weighed my bro-in-law`s `77 Corvette many years ago and it was between #17-1800, with the fiberglass body. My 1974 Pontiac Astra, (same as a Chevy Vega) was #2300.Like the others, I'm very glad to hear that you're OK. It amazes me how inattentive many drivers are. When you're piloting a 2000+ pound piece of pseudo-steel down the road, it seems so one should devote one's attention to doing that instead of talking on one's cell phone or, especially, sending text messages like so many people do.
Even if the intersection is uncontrolled, the one party has the responsibility to yield the right of way to the party already in the intersection (which it sounds as though you were, since you're the one that got hit). Failure to notice a stop sign isn't an excuse.
