Trucking companies are not known to accept "He did it. I did nothing" at face value.
I remember one situation I pulled out of a Bus station after getting trapped in the area which I really should have known better. One idiot managed to make it about 1/3 of a mile all the way up to me before ramming the curb off a light.
He claimed I cut him off. Pay him 500 for a new wheel etc.
My Boss questioned me carefully for weeks I laughed and explained carefully what happened. He did it to himself I cut no one off with that little hot car he had.
From what I understand, in the end the guy had to buy hisself a entirely new wheel, tire, fender, front end etc etc etc after seeing visions of a big golden payout from our tractor trailer way up there on scam hill.
