Potentially you are responsible for all claims, property damage and injury, arising from this incident. Depending on the facts, its also possible other drivers are liable. Your insurance will attempt to settle all claims within the amount of insurance (policy limit) that you have. Talk to your insurance adjuster to find out whether the claims against you will be settled.

Good luck.

This is an issue that will need to be sorted out by the parties and your insurance carrier.
