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 tapped someone with my car in the city. They seemed to be fine and walked off, but I was unable to exchange information because the light changed. I did not go back to find them after driving away. What should I do next?

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.

I am the only witness in a t and Run accident between a car

I am the only witness in a Hit and Run accident between a car and a bicycle in Albuquerque, NM. I saw the whole thing. I immediately stopped to see if the guy on the bike was OK and he was not. Another person then stopped to sit by the injured man and I got back in my car and chased the driver down who was driving away as if nothing had happened. I caught up to her and made her stop by blocking her car with mine. 911 was called and I made sure the lady drove back to the scene of the accident.The police told me to please answer my phone from a blocked number so they could talk to me. I have now been subpoenaed. Twice. The first time through the mail and today by a visit to my house from a guy at the District Attorney's office because of a change in the court date. He was not a polite guy and asked me questions about the house I live in and where I worked. I asked him if this was relevant to the case and he said no. After a two second pause, he turned around without saying anything, got in his car and left.My question is....Am I going to need an attorney because I witnessed this hit and run? Is their attorney going to grill me about my life? Or, am I there to just answer questions about the accident? If I need an attorney because I am a witness then this just exacerbates the idea of never getting involved.

I was hit by a drunk driver that did not have a license, he

I was hit by a drunk driver that did not have a license, he drove away and I chased him to a nearby park,There I saw that he was under the influence, he convinced me to call his wife so that my car would get covered by their insurance and the only way that would happen is if I said she was driving, otherwise he would just go to jail and my car wouldn't get fixed as I only have the basic insurance on my car. So his wife arrived and we exchanged insurance info, and completely changed the story of how the accident happened, now they are disputing the accident and having me take fault for it. I have a video of the driver whom you can tell in the video is under the influence and him saying he wrecked my car, and also telling me to call his wife,I am afraid to do anything because I have lied to the insurance companies. Is their anything I can do to 1. Not be involved in an insurance fraud.2. Get things straight with the insurance company to fix my car ... Or what other options do I have ?
