What should you do when you are involved in an accident where the other party did not want to involve the police but they contacted you later requesting payment for damages?
If they did not want the police involved, there may be a chance
they didn't have license, insurance, or either. i would not give
them a dime. not one cent. if i were u, i would get a legal
oppinion. * In most states police do not get involved in minor
accidents when there are not injuries or mitigating circumstances
such as someone being under the influence. Apparently information
was exchanged since the other involved party knew how to contact
you. The best option is to obtain assistance from your insurance
provider. An attorney cannot give you advice on a situation that
has yet to become a legal issue. As noted, it would be very unwise
for the involved party to make any agreement or payment until he or
she has consulted with their insurance agent.
