A: An Alabama attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for four weeks. From what you describe, you exchanged information with the other vehicle owner, and they initially decided it wasn't worth doing anything about. They later decided they wanted to handle the claim through their insurance. If they contacted you by text, save the text and any other records. If anyone later tries to say you left the scene of an accident, your ability to produce records of your communications with the other vehicle owner would show your good faith and serve as evidence that you did not flee the scene. Good luck
