Question

What should I do if I was hit by another driver and they gave me false documents?

I was rear ended in the parking lot of my apartment building while I was still in park. When the other driver handed me their insurance paperwork, the card looked fake because I had never heard of their company before. She also tried to take my driver license but I managed to grab it out of her hand. At this point she jumped back in her car and sped off. What can I do?

Your best bet is to contact the police and file a report. If you were able to write down or remember their license plate number then that should aide the police in finding the responsible party. In the meantime, you should be able to file a claim with your insurance provider if your policy includes collision coverage.
