What to do if I sold a car about 9 moths ago and it was involved in an accident for which I am now being sued?

Unfortunately, I only have eye witnesses of me signing over title. The lady I sold it to and a who her daughter was involved in a hit and run a month after the car was sold. The title had not been switched over until after accident sometime. Driver denies being behind the wheel but I believe was arrested for it. I was out of state at time of accident and also I believe my brother was a passenger and eye witness of accident. I am currently being charged from progressive I believe for a no insurance ticket and damages. Plus because of no insurance ticket my lisenced is now revoked. I have no idea if or what I can do, if anything.

I suggest that you immediately contact your insurance carrier for automobile insurance if you have one and make a claim as to what happened. If the carrier will not be in a position to help you, you need to consult with an attorney experienced in insurance and auto law. One can be found through attorneypages.com.
