Hello, a traffic accident...

Hello, a traffic accident happened on March 1, I drove a car with an expired insurance and hit another car. It's my responsibility,I would like to pay for the damage, but that person made me pay him $ 15,000, that is a lot of more than the value of his car. He just lie to me. He asked me to give him the money this week. Otherwise, he would fill in a DOR 1140 form, let the state collect the money for him, and he saying it will affect my studies. So firstly I want to know if should I pay him this week and if I did not pay him, he would go through legal action, would this affect my studies, and then if he came to find me for another excuse and let me to pay for him, what should I do. I am a Chinese, I do not know the laws of the United States, so please help me, thank you

Lawyer's Assistant: When we are ready I'll take you to the appropriate web page. What state is this in? And how old is the car?

Missouri , his car is 2003 Chevrolet Monte Carlo Ls

Lawyer's Assistant: Has anything been filed or reported?

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

Yes, that is on April 24, because I was driving a car with expired insurance, I need to going to appear in court. If he took legal proceedings, is this will not affect my appearance in this court.

If you caused the accident he can sue you for the damage to his car but it sounds like he just wants to quickly get money from you with no guarantees that he won't sue you later... I personally think it would be foolish to pay him without any guarantees that he won't sue you but that's just *my* personal opinion.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
