    Last night I was involved in a car accident. A truck rear ended my car while he was trying to overtake me. In my car was myself my brother and my 3 year old daughter. As a result my car has been written off and me and my passenger have both got muscle soreness and will be going to the doctors today. The truck driver was not breath tested or drug tested at the scene should he have been aswell as me? And who pays for the damage to my car and our hospital bills?

    Do you have insurance? Otherwise you may need a lawyer.
