What can I do if I am being accused of being the guilty party in an accident? 2 Answers as of April 15, 2011I was making a turn and he t-boned me. He says that it is my fault but he hit me in northbound traffic while he was going south. How can I defend myself? I am in Illinois. I was taken to the hospital.

In the event that the "guilty party" brings a claim against you, simply report the claim to your auto insurance carrier and your carrier will handle the defense of the claim. Additionally, your carrier will provide you with defense counsel in the event that you are sued. However, if you wish to make a claim for your own personal injuries, you should contact an attorney who will both prosecute your claim and counter the allegations made against you by the "guilty party".
