DWI caused 3rd party property damage. We filed no claim but are being called to discuss a claim anyway. What should we do next?
My wife had a car accident involving no other persons, but in which 3rd party property was damaged. She was charged with a DWI . At the time we did not notify our insurance carriers---it made no sense to us to file a claim since my wife's conviction was proof positive she was at fault. The car's damage meant we had to take it off the road and we surrendered the plates. We also canceled our insurance policy. I recognize there may have been at least one bad decision made here, but coming up-to-date---our insurers at that time have now contacted us to discuss "your claim" in connection with the accident. As I said, we didn't file a claim so it seems the property owners have contacted our carriers for restitution. I know what the right thing to do is, but what is our legal position?
