A: A Texas attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for three weeks. The fact that it was her second accident in two months isn't really relevant. The short answer is that you take the papers you were served with and present them to your insurance carrier. They should assign counsel to defend you in the case. Fortunately, it sounds like it could be a minor accident from your description - involving backing up, and minimum damage. Whatever the case may be, your insurance company should be handling things from here. Their representatives and attorneys will probably speak with you to explain how they'll need your cooperation in investigating the accident and in responding to the summons and complaint from the other driver who is suing. Good luck
