I was sitting at a red light when a driver hit me. They admitted fault to me and their insurance. I already settled with their insurance company who paid for the value of my car. Now I received a letter that they are pleading not guilty to the charges. Since I already settled with insurance and wasn't injured is there any reason for me to appear and testify that they were at fault? I'm not interested in making sure they suffer legal penalty, I was paid for my car and as far as i'm concerned everything is ok. If I don't appear and the charges against them are dismissed does that open an opportunity for their insurance company to change their mind, reopen the claim and demand money back?
