Is the car in your name, or is it owned by your parents or someone else? You need to be aware that if you were driving a car that is owned by your parents, they will be legally responsible for the damages as the owner of the vehicle. Regardless of whose car it is, it is important that you immediately report the accident if you haven't already and tell them about the demand that has been made. If you don't, it could affect the availability of coverage later.
