My question to you is how much would it cost to hire someone to fight this for me, and what would be the chance of the ticket being dropped? I have pictures of the damages to all of the cars and would be willing to provide any more information you need. Thank you for your time!
(Also to note, I contacted the driver whom I hit to get a statement from him, he changed his story from what he told me at the time of the accident stating that he stopped just "barely" before I hit him and did the final push for him to hit the car in front. However looking at the pictures I have taken there is pretty much 0 damage to the back of his car, and the damage done to the car in front of him (his license plate is fully embedded into the back bumper) I don't see how I could have caused such damage, let a lot cause the front car to get as much damage as that had to.
The ticket is a different issue and you should be able to negotiate it to a fall to turn out to avoid a collision which is a minor ticket for insurance purposes.
Your damage conclusions all sound reasonable but the bottom line is you impacted a vehicle that you were following so for insurance and HTA you are at fault. Whether you caused 3 to hit 2 and 2 to hit 1 is really irrelevant.
