I was involved in a situation where a pedestrian carrying many bags, darted out into my vehicles path, I veered away from them and avoided hitting them. There was no contact with my car, but the person stated they wanted my information, and I caused their fall. I had stopped to ask if they were ok, if they needed an ambulance, and we could call the authorities. They insisted all they wanted was my name just in case their scratched arm was not ok. I insisted that we call the authorities to give names, but they did not want to. Months down the road I got a letter from a lawyer. I contacted my auto insurance, they found the person to state that they had a minor injury and they reported it. Does this happen frequently? If you suspect fraud what do you do?
