I live in California I rear ended them exiting a shopping center it was considered inside the property still so cops did not file a report. The guy reported the accident to his insurance and we exchanged information.
is it already a foregone conclusion that I will be sued, and that my Insurance policy will pay-out, and the family’s lawyer will be able to go-after whatever assets I own, even if the Sheriff’s dept. has concluded that I am not guilty of any wrong-doing?
Most of the time, depending on your assets and insurance, they will not go after you personally.

Police report and my insurance put other party at 100% fault while her insurance considers me at 75% fault. Since I had basic insurance, I'm losing over 6K.

The question is a bit confusing. Which MC did the DMV refuse? What was refused? What reason did the DMV give you? Did you contact the DMV to see what it requires (to register the MC? ) Anyway the more important question is how are you physically and mentally? Were you injured? How bad? Whose...Read more »
