My question involves a traffic accident in the State of: New York
A week ago, I was in a minor accident in my fiancee's car. The SUV involved only ended up with scuffing on the rear passenger side hubcap and a minor scrape abrasion along the edge of the rear wheel well. On my fiancee's car, the front passenger directional was completely busted. The woman called her husband and he was apparently not bothered by the damage, and she drove off without calling the cops, without insurance information, and without personal information. The only info she could have taken would be the license plate number. I paid for the damages to my fiancee's car out of my own pocket, but now she's received a phone call from Geico (her insurance) while being out of the country, which I obviously can't look into any further. Would it have been possible for a claim to be filed later with only the license plate number?
