I was involved in a fender bender. We exchanged all info and insurance, but did not call police. There were only a few scratches to each of our cars. His car had preexisting key scratches and other mishaps that he admitted were his fault from prior incidents. We both walked out of the accident cordial to each other and in good health. The other driver was young, but I could tell he was trying to see how much money he could get from insurance. He stated that directly. A few days later, my insurance calls me and states that his attorney is filing a personal injury claim with my insurance. I think this is a little fishy. Should I seek the aid of an attorney? Must I file the SR-1 form if he is claiming injury on a fender bender when we both walked away in good health?The damage on my car was much less than $750, as I only have a tiny dent. I do not know how much the other driver's damage costs, but there was only a small scratch on top of the fender.
