However, my insurance, a CPI won’t cover anything on her car so I agreed to pay her out of hand. She refused to make a police report but lets say she changes her mind. Will it be considered a hit and run although we exchanged numbers and she let me go.
A Texas attorney could best handle your question, but you await an answer for four weeks. No one can say what authorities would do if presented by a convincing story by her. But even if she did, you have your version of events, and someone who committed a hit-and-run wouldn't be likely to...Read more »

It could depend on what the respective carriers for each car determine as the root cause of the accident. They will probably investigate towing equipment, speed at which the tow was made, condition of those two tires that blew out if they didn't disintegrate, and other factors. It's...Read more »
A family member had a car accident. He had major injuries/loss that will require ongoing surgeries. There was a settlement and subrogation is over. Will his health insurance deny coverage of future surgeries and come after the settlement money? He is also going to be switching insurance due to... Read more »
A Texas attorney could advise best, as these types of claims could involve state law, but your post remains open for two weeks. As a general matter, the question of whether they would come after settlement money could depend on the wording of any releases, and other terms and conditions of the...Read more »
Police can retain evidence until the statute of limitations has expired for a given offense (assuming criminal charges are not filed). This time frame varies depending on the offense, but the minimum time is 2 years from the date of the alleged incident. Calling a lawyer may help. Good luck.

As a general matter, attorneys can withdraw from a case and clients can dismiss their attorneys. One option you could explore is to obtain digital copies of your records and see what you could learn or accomplish in contacting other attorneys. Good luck
the Texas AAA should have some guidance. Generally a ticket won't be on the license until you have paid the fine or been found guilty. You may want to see if the officer will change it to a non-moving violation.
I did file a police report and the other party was charged with FGI. I have contacted both my insurance company and the other party and both have denied the claim. Since then the other party has filed a PI claim with my insurance which was denied. What are my options at this point for... Read more »
Unfortunately, this happens quite a bit. Insurance companies try to minimize their exposure by partially blaming all parties involved. You can certainly fight their position with the help of witnesses, photos, or near by cameras. I suggest chatting with a PI attorney about your case to go over all...Read more »
After failing a driving test, the DPS tester got out of the car, and instructed my daughter to drive around and park the car, while I was waiting in the designated area. While doing so, she hit another car. As a result my insurance premium got significantly higher. I am pretty sure that the tester... Read more »
