A driver with a suspended license hit me in a shopping center parking lot. The driver admitted fault, but asked that we keep the insurance companies out of it. I was able to take pictures of the accident scene, even though there was no police report. Now I am experiencing back pain. What are my options?

You need to notify your own insurance company about the accident and file a claim.  Next, send the other driver a letter by certified mail, requesting that he report the accident to his insurance company.

Seek medical treatment if you need it.  A doctor will be able to provide appropriate medical care for your back pain and will be able to determine the extent of your injury.
