I was in a car accident in Maryland about 6 months ago and it was my fault. Several weeks ago I noticed the claim is still open so I contacted my insurance (Geico) about it. They said that the other person was injured and they're trying to negotiate the medical bill. However, he's now suing me for 30,000. I think he may have bruises from seat belt but he definitely was fine as he was walking around at the scene of the accident and was able to drive away in his own car. Maybe he develops some deeper injuries after the accident, but I highly doubt it would worth 30,000. I already contacted my insurance about this, and the liability person told me that they're still trying to settle the medical bills. I just want to know what will most likely happen now (i.e reach settlement or I'm screwed)?
