Can I sue for personal injury if my headlights were not on? 1 Answers as of November 26, 2010

A car crossing an intersection in a residential street hit my car at night but I had forgotten to turn my headlights on. We exchanged insurance information and I later found out that the other party was taking the case to court because I did not have my headlights on. However the accident was not my fault because the other car had to yield because I had the right of way. I want to represent myself but I do not know what my chances are of winning. I am physically fine but I have some cut and bruises and was very shaken up.

Court will probably favor the other guy if it was dark and your car was not visible.
