The statute of limitations for personal injury in Michigan is three years, which is why you are hearing about this and getting sued now, three years after the accident. They had to get the lawsuit filed or it would have been too late. No doubt that is what they are attempting to serve you with, a lawsuit. Since you did not have insurance at the time of the accident, you will have to either hire an attorney to represent you or represent yourself. Since you admit you caused the accident, the best thing may be to let them serve you and then call the attorney and attempt to settle for whatever you can afford. If you avoid service and ignore the lawsuit, they will likely get a default judgment against you for the full amount, and then they can garnish your paycheck and/or your bank accounts. You do not want that.
