Do you not have insurance of your own to defend you? If not, you need to challenge this assertion. A driver is required to operate their car in a manner whereby they leave enough safe distance between themselves and the car in front of them to avoid a collision. Also, you should make sure you are okay medically. I often find I have clients that have verifiable whiplash even in low speed collision such as this.
