I had this - cars were following some big truck at about 40mph in 60 zone and then just ahead is the first possibility to overtake straight into 70 zone. everyone is taking right lane. I usually have a solid distance to preceding car and when I was doing it - just along the white line - guy behind used painted area to try to get in front of me and we brushed sides. He has damage to back side of his car around back wheel arch, I have damage to side at front between door and front lights. INsurance advisor was only suggesting that as I was changing lanes I could be at found fault too. I'm kind of not ready to take hit on that [costs - car is important to get me to work far away], but there is no witness, and guy can claim he has overtook but never went over painted area. The Only thing supporting my case is that there is junction in 200m and we have still managed to get it and stop round a corner - crawling slowly for most of the distance after accident. Road is busy and too dangerous to walk onto plus it was dark to get any evidence photographed. Only debris from side indicator could poss be found. 1. I'm not feeling at fault should I go already with letters in STICKY [more like messages as only phone number ready] 1a. When to send letter if only in few weeks I will know full extent of uninsured costs? 2. If I neglect that can he do the same? claiming I was at fault and what is worst case scenario? It is right thing to claim expenses, but now I just feel 'how I did not see it coming in a side mirror' but remember only it went fast and he had to well accelerate to be in front of me that fast :
