I rear-ended another vehicle at a red light the other night. We agreed to exhange information but not file any insurance claims or call the police. A policeman, however, was nearby (but not a witness) and came over to ask if we wanted to make a statement. The man driving the other vehicle (the one I rear-ended) declined to make a statement, so the policeman left.
There were no injuries and the only visible damage was that the tape/rubber part of the man's bumper had popped out an inch. He said it just needed to be popped back in but he would take it in to his car guy to check. We then exchanged information and he had me sign a paper stating that I rear-ended him. He said he wanted to make sure he is not at fault.
I am worried that he will get his car all fixed up (beyond the minor bumper damage) and hand me the bill. An aside: I was driving a little mazda and hit a cadillac because i took my foot off the gas and rolled into him from 4 feet away, so I don't see how there could be much damage
Would I be liable/responsible for his repairs?
