It was pretty incredible. We were at a complete stop in our car. And we saw her coming straight at us ... all the time looking off to the side with earbuds on. She couldn't have been more than 10 feet away from impact before she finaly looked over and saw us. I will never forget the look on her face in that split second before impact.
We thought, no way she's gonna run into us.
We wuz wrong.

FWIW, most folks wouldn't have cared about that. Their response probably would have been something along the line of "You should have thought about that BEFORE you ran into my car."
And if they had taken you to small claims court, your current pay check wouldn't have mattered, either.

I paid her the median quote, which was $590. I know i am at fault and it is my fault for not getting information from the right/official sources, but 70$ is a day work for me. Of course I will be happy to spend more if I had a better paying job.In addition to the "median quote", what were/will be her charges for a 3-5 day rental car while her car is being repaired?
just a salad for me

In most states that means you have to get a special insurance wavier for a year to prove you maintain insurance, and it would be a huge cost in court fines/expenses. I would be extra nice, since they could still cause you some trouble if the pushed that officer that gave them the info on the subject of you not having insurance at the time of the accident. Ask them what they want, and if it even anywhere near reasonable, pay it.
Don't get me going. Two years ago I came close to being killed by a drunk driver who didn't have insurance, didn't have a drivers license (it was revoked from previous DUI's) and fled the scene. Long story, but he spent a week in jail, letting him out because he agreed to make restitution. This is in California. He shows up for no hearings, and I end up using an attorney and filing a large claim against my own uninsured motorist coverage. What the law is and what actually happens are two different stories.
