I needed some advice/help. This last weekend I was involved

Hello, I needed some advice/help. This last weekend I was involved in a wreck. I was heading North on the highway and the roads were in slick condition as I live in Colorado and it had snowed. There was a light and we were going about 65mph. The light had turned yellow and the car in front of me had the chance to make it across and so was I but she decided to brake still causing me to run into her. She was in front of the interception line so I did believe she was going to go through but decided not to. What can I do in this case to win my case? I have filed a insurance claim but the cop gave me the "reckless driving" ticket as well as mandatory court date.JA: Because traffic laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: ColoradoJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: Will be filing a claim this FridayJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: That will be it

A fender-bender that occurred last night: a kid ran into me,

a fender-bender that occurred last night: a kid ran into me, but the damage to my car isn't bad; and damage to me doesn't seem to be anything major at this point: I don't have a great memory of the first second or two after he hit me; and a couple weird things happened (e.g. my hands started shaking, and then I eventually started sorta crying about 20-30 minutes or so later for no good reason (probably a delayed adrenaline/stress reaction, if I had to guess)). My back--and eventually my head--felt a little worse for wear as the night progressed, but right now I feel ok, so fingers crossed.The other driver apparently recently got a ticket for reckless driving/DUI and was/is pretty terrified about what would happen to him if we went through insurance. He seemed completely fine/functional at the time he hit me--I think he was just distracted. I'd like to accommodate that request, but my concern is what might happen for him down the line if it turns out anything medical did happen as I'm still unclear about that at this point.Oh also, I realized later that both the license and the registration he showed me (I asked him to take pix and email them to me as I was having trouble writing) were expired, but I have all his contact info, license/plates, cell #, even saw his FB profile. He's definitely not trying to evade this or anything.So my questions in a nutshell:Is there a way to delay going through insurance while we figure out whether anything medical has occurred?If it turns out my body hasn't been negatively affected in any lasting ways, can I legally offer to waive part of whatever total $$ he ends up owing for the damage to my car on the condition that he attend a support group, maybe even a Christian one?Thanks in advance for any feedback/insight you're willing to provide!
