Have Legal Questions? Ask a Lawyer Now.
Hello, I am legal expert at Justanswer and I will be helping you with your question today.
Have you been contacted by the owner of the parked car?
or by the police?
no because I do not knnow who they are or whick apt they live in and I didn't call the police becasue of my expired license and warrent in nc. I live in mi though
woops sorry don't know what happened
no I don;t know who they are or which apartment is theres cause it was parked on the other side away from the buildings
I didn't call the poice because I am scared my license is expired because of outstanding ticket in nc which is probably a warrent now.
You want to contact the owner if possible and work out a payment plan for the damages. That should put an end to it. No one was injured so the police normally dont interfere. If you cannot locate the owner by reasonable effort, all you can do is wait to be contacted for now.
You could leave a note to be called by the owner
and then work out a settlement as noted
the law says that I should leave aa note, but I'm afriad their going to call the cops the moment they get any of my info
Your options are to leave a note or wait and see if you are contacted
I've done bad damage to the vehical. I don't thin they'll be able to drive in the morning the tire is tucked in
Practically, some people claim they left a note as it is hard to prove otherwise
You could try to meet the driver in the morning
and then work out a settlement
what are the penalties just in case the witness finds me or something. I'm so scared
Practically the driver will want to be made whole and seek to sue for the damages incurred
For this reason working out a settlement would be preferable
If you cover the cost plus additional amount for the inconvenience
often insurers are not even involved
nor the police
but I'm mean if the cops find me. what are the penalties then?
I just want to know the worse case scenario
For criminal consequences, I will refer you to a colleague. Please hang on
