I was walking to my car as an 18 year old guy was trying to pull into a very tight spot next to me. I waited as he decides the spot is too small and as he backs out he hits my bumper! Bad driver all around, the car was a stick and he was revving it to 2k and moving an inch. Anyway, I approach him as he is leaving and through his closed window he denies hitting my car! I thought he was going to take off so I took a picture of his license plate, and told him if he didn't give me his information I was calling the cops. He rolls the window down an inch and gives me his insurance and license, then claims there is no damage and sends his girlfriend out to look at the damage! Then we go to the damage is minor, he'll pay for it, yada, yada, yada. I was so [censored] he was trying to tell me he didn't hit my car when I stood there and watched it happen!

That sucks. I'd phone the police anyways. They may not send anyone out, but at least they'd have record of the call should you need it for insurance.

That would be bad here in OH-"no fault" on private property-if they don't feel like paying for it, there's no way to force them. Had a delivery truck wipe out a corner panel on one of our Econolines, cost $1K to fix. And they wonder why I won't take my personal truck on calls...

In addition I would have called the police and made the kid wait there for them. I'd want a police report to be safe showing he struck my parked car.

My boss wondered th same thing. I would take the company truck only to places I knew my truck would probably get messed up at. Then the guy above him was like we pay for that truck, let him use the company truck when he wants. Lol

At least you know right from the start that you're dealing with a [censored]. Anyone that could drive off like that will have to be forced to pay. A person that won't take responsibility for their own actions will never change.

What would you do if he took a swing at you for calling him out ?

I'd realize that there really is a God in heaven looking out for me and I'd be thrilled for the opportunity to communicate back on his terms my displeasure with his unacceptable behavior.

He wouldn't even roll his window down more than an inch, so I wasn't too concerned he was going to take a swing at me.

I asked for his number and for some reason felt the need to call him to make sure it was correct. Since then he texted me and apologized, and asked for a picture of the damage. Not replying, if he wanted to see it he should have got out of the car.

Anyway claim is opened with his insurance company, he reported it and admitted fault. Now I need to find a shop and hope they can just blend the corner.
