It has nothing to do with WHETHER you were liable in the "hit and run" but a subsequent Reckless Driving will make it a heck of a lot more difficult for your attorney to negotiate a plea, in BOTH actions. Do NOT plead guilty to the speed/reckless charge. Hand it over to your attorney... Read more »

Had a small fender bender and when I asked for a police report officers said I had to file a claim with my insurance or have my lisence revoked. is this true even if I was the person who got rear ended?

No, he's --or you--have mixed it up. You file with the other insurance if it's a rear ender. However if you were hurt, call a member of the Texas Trial Lawyers Assn--they give free consults.
