I caused a simple accident. I dented the front corner panel

I caused a simple accident. I dented the front corner panel of a person's car with my uninsured car. He reported it as a hit and run. I was at fault, so it was agreed that I would pay to have it fixed. No other agreements were made. Would that make me liable or obligated to have the new front corner panel color-matched (customize) to the person's car or just have the piece replaced?

I got in an accident recently, where the other driver was

I got in an accident recently, where the other driver was uninsured and unlicensed. They pleaded me to let them cover my deductible so they don't have to be liable for the full damage (by reporting a hit and run). Since I would be compensated for repairs, I thought it would nice to help them in this case. I collected their driver's license, vin and plates.I made the mistake of filing the claim as a hit and run before receiving payment from the other party, and they have stopped communication with me. I did not let them know I filed the claim yet. I feel very sad and cheated, but is there any legal recourse for me?

I believe I may have tapped a car yesterday trying to back

I believe I may have tapped a car yesterday trying to back out of a tight parking garage space. I was barely moving and slowly reversing/going forward trying to get out of the spot. I did not feel any kind of bump or jolt to indicate that I bumped into them but a passenger in my car thought I hit the car behind me. I did not thinking about leaving a note at the time and wish I had. I'm worried and would like to give them my insurance information. I have my parking stub from the garage still. Should I call the garage and ask if they can assist? Should I call my local police station and report the possible accident and provide my information incase a report is filed? There is no damage or markings (no paint, scratches, anything) on my car so I'm not even sure I actually hit the car.
