I bumped into another car, no injury, no visible damage. The sheriff didn't give me a ticket. Can I still be charged?

  1. You can be sued for negligence. If you left the scene of the accident (you do not say whether you saw the sheriff there or later) you can be charged with that. Too many details are left out and there is too much missing information to fully make all the observations about your situation.

    Check with a lawyer in your locale to discuss more of the details.
