Police were not called to the scene of the accident, what kind of problem may this cause?

I backed out of a parking space and was just getting ready to put my car in drive when an elderly gentleman backed into me.

His rear bumper hit the side of my car on the driver's side. No damage to either car. Police were not called. Exchanged insurance information. Will this cause any problems since the police were not called?


Should not be an issue.

Most of the time, the police does not come to parking lot collisions (unless there is a dispute or there is some kind of injury).

However, parking lot accidents are hard to investigate. Both drivers have duties and it is difficult to establish if you were backing or already stop.
