I hit another car on business travel in Texas due to not familiar the road at night. The other driver didn't have drive license, no car insurance. Driver said he's very sick after I hit his car. He said he can't work anymore. I filed the claim to my insurance company to settle this. I'm asked to go to Texas. I'm not available until the later days. How do I handle this? Thanks
Contact your insurance company and let them know what's going on. They are obligated to provide you with a lawyer who will advise you on how to proceed.
Your insurance company should have hired a defense attorney for you. As such, it makes no sense you being served with an"subpoena," unless you actually mean you were served with a summons and complaint. Contact your insurance company! If they were to request you submit to a deposition, they will need to come to you or else pay for your travel expenses to go to Texas. However, your defense attorney can handle coordination for you and also prepare you.

Turn all this paperwork over to your insurance company and let your insurance company handle it. They will hire a lawyer for you if necessary.
You will most likely have to go to Texas. But work with your insurance company to resolve the situation and to find days when you get get there.
