A: Presumably you and the other driver exchanged insurance information. The other driver should make a claim with your insurance company for any damages they or their car suffered in the accident. You will likely need to provide a statement of what happened to your insurance company (they'll likely call for this statement). There's not much else you need to do. If you were uninsured, then the other driver may demand from you directly that you pay for any vehicle damage or injuries they suffered, and may end up suing you personally if you can't settle their claim.
