It’s not uncommon for a driver to report facts to his insurance company that are not correct and that will form the basis of their initial denial of liability.

Common Questions That
We Can Help You Answer:
I was hit while in the crosswalk, but the insurance company is telling me its my fault.
Generally, if you are in the crosswalk and following the traffic signals at the intersection, the incident is not your fault.
The adjuster tells me he or she will be fair, and I do not need a lawyer.
It’s the adjuster’s job to settle claims as quickly and cheaply as possible. Quickly resolving a claim is not always good.
I was hit by a car while crossing in the middle of the street. Can I still make a claim?
Yes. If it can be established that you should have been seen, and if the driver was paying attention could have avoided striking you.
