Manheim, PA asked in Car Accidents for Maryland

Q: I was a victim of a hit and run, neither I or the officer got subpoenas for the court date, can I go to small claims?

The person who hit me got away with nothing no fees, tickets, nothing. I do want to go to small claims court. I recently checked the persons file under maryland judiciary search and now she is in stage 1 expungement for the hit and run, can I still go to claims court? To sue for the damage to my vehicle?
