I live in Texas & was rear ended after accelerating from a red light. A police report was made & the other driver was told by the officer that he was at fault. The guy told his insurance that I slammed on my brakes & that's why he hit me. Therefore, they denied the claim. Saying that I caused the accident by unnecessarily applying my brakes. Do I have recourse or am I at fault now?
