If I was in a crash, can I defend myself from a potentially fraudulent lawsuit? 3 Answers as of March 23, 2011I accidentally bumped into another car with mine. No damage was done to either vehicle, and no one was injured. I did not get the other persons insurance info because I was so anxious, but she got mine. Can I protect myself from being set up for a fraudulent suit? I am concerned the other driver may try to concoct something that did not happen.

At this point there is nothing to do other than photograph your property damage. If you receive notice of claim for injuries then I strongly urge you to notify your insurance carrier as they will defend you. Any allegations made must be proven factually, medically and legally. Accordingly I would not be concerned about a"potentially fraudulent lawsuit."
