I was in the passenger seat driving with my friend and we got into an accident. She hit another car and they are suing her for damages. Her insurance is terrible and she may have to go to court. If she does, she asked me to testify. The problem is that I saw the whole thing and it was her fault. She is claiming the car sped into her when she changed lanes, but actually, she cut them off and never even signaled.
The bottom line is that they need me to testify since I was the only one in the car. I am planning to lie and I feel awful about it, but if I don't, it'll break her financially.
I know that the other couple should really get the money they deserve, without their insurance rates going through the roof, but I feel like I have to help my friend because she can't afford an increase in her insurance policy.
