Accident still under investigation

The accident from a week ago is still under investigation by Allstate. They've already seen my car and estimated $600 which was no surprise. They took my statement, but they're having problems contacting the other driver (their customer). The agent said she spent an hour on the phone yesterday trying to explain what was happening and she refused to to give her statement over the phone. So, Allstate is sending out a questionnaire for her to fill out and return back next week. Hopefully that will come back quickly. Doubtful.

This underscores the need to file a police report no matter how minor the damage is. It's the best way to protect yourself and prove who is at fault. Right now she could claim I hit her and then there is nothing to prove it either way and both insurance companies would be splitting the costs. I should have also taken pictures with my phone before we moved our cars out of the way. That would have helped a lot too to prove my case. Regardless, I don't think she will be disagreeing with who is at fault.

Ugh, what a pain. I'm sorry, bud.
