Wifey had a car crash this morning - tight 90 degree right hand bend, she was aware the car coming the other way wasn't going to turn - went straight into the front corner of her car. First thing the other woman said was "I don't know what happened". After speaking to her daughter on the phone (a solicitor - we vaguely know the family) her story went to "I had to swerve to try and avoid her" implying wifey was in the wrong. They probably don't realise that the car following her (the other woman) has given a statement to the police that she (the other woman) just went straight on. The cop in charge at the scene even said to me it looks like that's what had happened. Whiplash, two badly bruised and swollen shins, and a nasty burn and swelling on her wrist, probably from an airbag, a days lost productivity, very shaken. Would you claim? I've always been of the opinion that if you're in a smash and you get away without lasting damage, you're lucky and should count your blessings. But with this other woman trying to wriggle out of responsibilty, I feel different.
