Collegedale, TN asked in Car Accidents for Tennessee

Q: Other party's insurance is charging me without receipts and threatening to have my license revoked for property damage?

My unregistered and uninsured car that I was working on at a shop rolled into another person's car. It was not being driven or on the road, just going through a full rebuild process. A police report was filed stating that the damage was property damage and not a moving violation, as both cars were unattended. The boy wanted to file an insurance claim anyway so I let him.. even after offering to pay. Finally my insurance rejected it, and then his insurance sent me a letter asking for a large sum of money (more than I'd estimate it worth) and threatening to have my license revoked. They have not sent me any quotes, estimates, or receipts since I guess they repaired the car without telling me. Is this fine and do I need to just pay the amount or what can I do to make this more fair?
