In California and many other states, any incident involving injury, death, or more than $750 property damage must be reported to the Department of Motor Vehicles. Furthermore, parties involved in collisions are absolutely required to exchange insurance and identification data.
My preferred punchlist would include seeking medical treatment or checkup, keeping a well-documented log of all repair and medical costs, and filing a detailed report with the DMV. If you have problems obtaining equitable payment, and you are confident that the other party was in the wrong, consider small-claims court.
