A: A Kansas attorney could advise you best, but your post remains open for three weeks. As a general matter, no one can really say what happens next. It's in the hands of the person whose car you hit. If you were insured and the damages were substantial or there were injuries, I'd say place your insurance carrier on notice of an impending claim. If it was just a tap, with no visible consequences, they could let it go. If it was a significant hit, they could take the car to a body shop and contact you about a repair estimate. But the ball is basically in their court. Good luck
