I was in an accident that damaged a median on an interstate. I have to go to court because of said damage to state property. No one has contacted me about the damage. This accident happened 2 months ago.
If you had liability insurance on your car at the time of the accident, contact your insurance agent. Your insurance company will handle the claim.
Unfortunately, the insurance company probably will not help with any traffic charges. However, proof that you were insured and that the claim has been turned into the liability insurance company will help you at the hearing.
I always recommend that you have a lawyer anytime you are in court.
