Hello, I am writing to see what anyone else's side of these events are.
Two years ago in Wi, US, my girlfriend was driving to her mom's house. It was in December, and it is Wisconsin, so of course, there was quite a bit of snow out. She was driving behind a truck, which suddenly stopped in the middle of the highway for non-emergency reasons. They wanted to watch their daughter snowmobiling on the side of the road. My girlfriend slammed on her brakes, but was unable to stop due to the icy conditions of the road. So, naturally, her car was totalled, and their car suffered a minor damage, her car having lifted the bumber off its brackets. The responding officer and two witnesses, which were just a little ways behind her declared that she was not at fault, and, in fact, the only ticket issued was for the driver of the vehicle in front of her, which was a ticket for driving without a license. Noone was hurt more than a minor inconvenience, and the vehicle ahead put there bumper in the trunk and continued on their way. Now shes being sued, two years later, for damages to the vehicle. The first trial found her at 90% fault, so we filed an appeal. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
