12/29/18 I backed to my truck out of the driveway and was in the street. I was going to pull in front of my neighbors house and I realize I had to go back a couple feet more when I tried y to go backwards my truck wouldn’t move,I looked around and there was a car on my left rear bumper. I did not feel anything I didn’t feel any shock whatsoever I was surprised that I saw a car there . We exchanged insurance there was only paint on my bumper and she had a slight dent in her hood . I felt absolutely no impact, she was attempting to go left onto my street from a side street . I feel she staged at this, Because now she’s claiming injury which is totally ridiculous and my insurance company said I didn’t exhibit proper right away although I was established in the street stopped and when I tried to go back a couple more feet it wouldn’t move,again there was absolutely no impact felt I did file a police report and I got a letter today saying I have 30 days to contest at Geico’s ruling
If you want to fight insurance fraud join the district attorneys office and ask for a position in the insurance fraud section. There are also some positions within various insurance companies and the California state insurance commission that fights these issues.

Sorry for your situation, but this happens all the time. Give the claim to your insurance company and let them deal with it. The fact that this was an extraordinarily minor impact will be confirmed by the damage to the other person's car. Your insurance company's adjusters know how to take care of these nuisance claims. There is nothing you can do about it other than put a backup camera on your vehicle to make sure this never happens again. Rest easy. This is no big deal. Honest.
