You may very well be. Although in NC we have a law called contributory negligence. This means that if both of you were at fault for the accident, neither can collect from the other. You could be seen at fault, because you were not allowed to drive and the office believed you did not yield the right of way.

The other person is at fault due to speeding and using a cell phone. In this scenario, you both most likely will need to get the repairs done with your own insurance plans.

You should consult a personal injury attorney for an indepth analysis
