A: I highly recommend consulting with an attorney immediately. A knowledgeable attorney will represent your interests throughout the entirety of the dispute. Do not make any more statements to the insurance company until you speak with an attorney.

A: I would assume that you notified your own insurance company about the incident. If you did, it will take care of any responsibility for damages claimed.
