First think you have to do I stop talking on this medium or any other about possible criminal culpability. Second thing, is hire a lawyer versed in criminal law and thirdly hire a civil lawyer down the road for the civil lawsuit that may occur.
If you were injured by an un-insured motorist, then you should hire an experienced personal injury lawyer. He can then file a claim on your behalf against your uninsured motorist policy. That's assuming you have that type of coverage.
if you have uninsured coverage and additionally underinsured coverage you can make a claim against your own insurance and they step into the shoes of the (un-cooperative ) driver that struck you. The other driver becomes uninsured as his policy requires him to cooperate with his own insurance. Once he fails to cooperate that he becomes an uninsured driver.

The prudent thing to do is hire a Lawyer to file a Petition for expungement. The petition is a document under oath identifying yourself and the alleged crime and dismissal that occurred. There will be a filing fee and various police agencies will have top be notified such as HPD, DPS, HCSO, the District Clerk etc. It is best to hire an attorney that is familiar with the process so that the process can occur smoothly.
You have the right to file for a motion for new trial but time is of the essence. Immediately consult with an attorney in you area.

You should immediately hire a lawyer. Dealing with this particular carrier is typical. All people are different and thus because u failed to seek medical treatment immediately does not necessarily mean that you're not injured. Stay focused and file a lawsuit if necessary to receive fair compensation.
I have found it very difficult for a Jury to overlook the fact that you were "shoplifting" at the time. If in fact a incidental "touching" occurred of a private area, a jury in Harris county is not likely to award you any compensation.
If in fact it person has perjured themselves by filing attesting to a document that is clearly false then he could possibly be sued for malicious prosecution. Hire a civil lawyer to determine whether you have a case.
