The answer will ultimately depend on how the ticket is disposed of. If you contest the police version of the crash, then do not just pay the fine on the ticket. Go to traffic court, bring evidence, and try to get the ticket dismissed. There is a requirement that all drivers in Tennessee carry insurance. However, there is an older part of the law that requires that drivers who do not have insurance confirm they will be financially responsible for any damage they cause. It is part of the system that was in place before the mandatory insurance requirement was passed a few years ago, and this older system was left on the books. It could apply in your case. Forms and information are available through the Tennessee Department of Safety website (see link below). By taking proactive steps, you can go from a situation where you might face liability for the crash to one where you can not only avoid liability, but press the other driver to cover your losses.Ask a similar question
