In 96 I had just bought a new Rover and was driving home, we were on an exit ramp stopped, the girl in front of me started to move so I moved and she slammed her brakes on so did I.
The brush guard hit her painted T-bird bumper but left no marks of any kind.
This fat B===h gets out and call me everything but a skinny white boy.

So now that I could get a word in edge wise she was going to leave and I said you can't we need a police report. I was just being a jerk as I was in no hurry to go anywhere and she was.

The trooper gets there 20 minutes later and she ripped him a new one.
Sent the report a week later to my Insurance company and said no damage was done and it also said that on the report.
A year later I get called to court and she is suing for 175,000.
The jury gave her a $1 and her kid $5. Everyone in the court was at a loss for words, even the judge. I asked the Foreman when we were dismissed and he said they knew it was a fraud and felt that award would be a bigger insult then if they gave nothing.
State farm had offered $20 some thousand dollars to settle before trial.

Edit:
Here is the best part almost forgot, when they were going to make the offer
I went nuts and they told me I could stop the offer but if they accepted and I declined and they won a $100,000 in court I would be responsible for the 80,000 difference.
With that I said spend your money how you see fit!

No wonder insurance is so high.
