    Answered . The likelihood is that the Mass driver will look to her own uninsured motorist coverage to cover the claim. The Mass driver or her insurance company may notify the NH Department of Motor Vehicles, and you may be required to post a bond for her damages or suffer the loss of your NH driver's license until the damages are paid. The Mass driver can also bring an action directly against you that will result in a judgment, and that judgment is good for 20 years. If the Mass driver's insurer pays the claim, they could come back at you for reimbursement for what they had to pay.

The insurance company can attempt to collect from you… some do, some don’t. If you do get sued (by anyone) get a lawyer.
