Leaving the scene of a motor vehicle accident
Medical problems arising from said accident
And you have nothing to back you up in court.
At least a police report will detail whether there were any injuries or not and exactly how much damage was actually done to both vehicles.
at least up here in ontario, if the person who was hit wants to make a claim against you, he/she has only one year from the date of the incident. after that they cannot make a claim to their insurance company.
i had an accident about 5-6 years ago, i acctually called my agent and she suggest if i had the money to go under the table. i asked about how long they would have if they wanted to make a claim and that's what i was told.
i went under the table and paid the $750 for a new rear bumper and paintwork. mine was fine and i didn't have airbags to worry about.
