    Answered . I am not licensed in your state and can provide you only with general advice. It is unclear whether you were ticketed for the first accident. If so, I would consult with a local attorney, but you may be able to appear and provide testimony if you were ticketed and have adjudication withheld on the ticket, or have it dismissed all together. If you were injured you should contact an attorney and seek medical evaluation. Provide the attorney with the information that you have on the at fault drive who left the scene and go from there.
