It appears you are being contacted by an attorney for the other party's insurance company seeking reimbursement of $3,400.00 they paid to their insured on an uninsured-motorist claim. The insurance company must prove your involvement in the accident before they can get a judgment against you. However, if you are sued and do not file an answer or other responsive pleading in court, they may have a default judgment entered against you. You do not want a judgment entered against you because it will appear on your credit report. I would suggest that you contact the insurance company's attorney and ask for any information they have that ties you to the collision. If they have proof that you were involved, you should work out a payment plan to avoid having a judgment on your record. If they do not have proof and are just trying to intimidate you, you should find a private attorney or a a legal aid attorney if you qualify and defend the case.
