Scratched someone’s bumper, what to expect?
Ugh, so I scratched someone’s bumper today on the street in Woodley Park. It already had a few dings on it, but my scratch was pretty noticeable so I left a note anyway. Now that I’ve done that, what are the odds of the owner of the car calling or trying to rip me off? I’m reading that bumper repair can be pretty costly. Should I insist on getting multiple written estimates? Is it better to go through insurance or pay up on my own? For what it’s worth, my car is pretty old, so I have super basic insurance and am not sure this sort of thing would even be covered (or cost-effective for me to go through insurance).
