    I was waiting for a ping; luckily no pax in car.

    ******* kid ( student) reversed and hit my parked car.

    To be honest there is litle damage , but a couple small dings.
    He didnt have insurance to make things worse.


    I got his info ( driverse license and license plate) ,


    Any advice on this?


    Should i contact him and his parents directly?
    get police involved?
    call my insurance?

    A part of me wants to give the kid a break , as long as i get my **** fixed

    Thanks and uber on

    If the parents don't pony up the dough to fix it ASAP, you need to report it. If you have uninsured motorist coverage you will be covered.

    Hopefully you got pictures of the damage to both his and your cars.

    I do^^

    Thanks.


    I may get a qoute from a body shop and send them a demand letter seeking damages for the cost and give them 10 days for payment or i'll be forced to contact the authorities

    I agree. Dumb ass kid will probably tell Mommy you rear ended him instead of the truth.

    Things like this is why I invested in a dash cam. Pictures don't lie.

    I would ask for 1000. Paint is no joke, if it's a dark color it's expensive.

    What part of the car was hit? Whatever the case is the entire panel has to be painted.

    How are you going to contact this person with only a divers lin and plate?
     
  9. Irod's INS co will find out.

    Hope the kid doesn't know your a driver. This could get sticky if not metro or Farmers.

    Try to avoid going with your own insurance company . First thing they ask : Do you drive with any of the ride sharing companies ?
