    Jeffrey’s Answer

    Sorry, but the answer is maybe. Although you very well may have been sent packing because of a lack of insurance, the issue will ultimately be whether the failure to "properly" treat you at the time is a cause of your current problems. A review of your records and further analysis would help answer your question. Speak directly with an attorney(s). Good luck.

    I got into a accident a week ago and I didn't know that I was in a accident. So I got a failure to report accident. The person has agreed to sign a accident release form and I will pay her the money for the damages.
