What to do?


Recommended Posts

Parked on the street today. Had a little honda in front of me then when i get back i see this mamoth of a truck. And scratches on my bumper and hood of car.

I left a note with my phone number on his windshield and left my car there for a while. He called me but i didn't make it back in time to meet up with him.

Anyway he swears up and down that he didn't hit my car and that he would have noticed plus has back up warning indicator. There was traces of paint

on some bolts under his granny rack but when i spoke to him on the phone he said that he didn't see anything at all. What would you do?

Make a call to your insurance company and report the damage. I would hope you have the trucks tag number which will make it easy for your insurance company to trace the car. Also since you have the photos it will make it easier to prove. I would agree with the driver of the SUV that it has a back up indicator but that will only measure the distance from it's bumper not the overhanging rear gate/lift. That unit sticks out at least 6 to 8 more inches beyond the rear bumper sensors. Also the scratches are such that when and if this car made the damage I'll wager the driver didnt even feel the contact since the gate/lift is bolted on the back. It makse sense that when that driver attempted to parallel he didnt feel the 'rub'.

Sorry to see the damage...

Good luck

Went to my insurance company today to show them. They told me to get an estimate. $1300.

This will fix the bumper/paint and the hood. I have $500 deductable. If under $1800 it won't affect

my insurance premiums. Then if they can prove the other guy was at fault i will not have to pay

deductable. But that is going to be hard to do.

I will pay the $500 for the work. It's worth that to me.

Too late now, but you should have called the police as soon as you got to the car so that an officer could investigate and provide an official report.. The accident report may have carried more weight with your insurance company and the insurance company of the truck owner.
