If you can't drive, expect to pay up.
OK, ok... I know we love our cars, but everyone makes mistakes. If ANYONE can honestly say they have never dinged someone else'* car by mistake, then it is only a matter of time!

I do think she should have to pay, but the money should go toward the repair and not a new pair of speakers or something.

Jim, I don't think we're looking at a moral dilemma here.

The fact is that she hit your car. Another fact is that if you try to do it yourself and it doesn't come out the way you were hoping, you're in a lot bigger trouble and may not be able to go back after her for the money (which would be more at that point.)

There is no moral dilemma in having her compensate you for your damages- especially with the risk of not having it done properly on your own (even though we all have complete faith in you.)

It'* not worth the risk, and you have every right to ask her to compensate you.

Well said. I agree totally. I know I'm not going to settle for anything less than what my 1992 was worth at the time of the accident back in 02, plus I'm adding the $1,000 that was offered to me for the bodily injury (whip-lash) before Progressive decided that the guy who hit me wasn't covered at the time of the accident -why did it take 4 days after the accident to decide that they weren't paying the rental car bill or for my car, etc.....
And + interest to date.

Why should I settle for anything less than what is rightfully mine? Same is true in your case. Don't try to go for more, just get restitution and that is a top quality repair (your car was not damaged in that area before, there-fore it shouldn't show it in the future. This would be a moral thing, especially on her part.
I'm paying for the dent removal of the dent I put in my sister'* GP fender with my head, even though she offered to turn it in to her insurance. It'* my fault, but there'* a price to pay -accident or not -it'* still the person at faults' duty to undo their wrongs.

And if you really want to wax philosophical about it, try this on:

Let'* say you don't ask her to pay for her damages and she doesn't learn her lesson. (Judging by the looks of her vehicle, I'd say she probably won't unless she'* forced to take responsibility.)

So the next car she carelessly backs into happens to be one with a newborn in the backseat...

Now you've got a moral dilemma

Yeah, was changing the front brakes, and one of the bolts was giving me trouble so I just lifted myself up with all my weight through my arms into the wrench and that'* when all hell broke loose. Trying to balance myself required putting my head where I thought was clear if the bolt broke loose and I came down, but the momentum carried me towards the car and I caught my forhead on the fender and put a nice 4"x6" dent about 1" deep into it and caused a ripple effect on the fender. For a second after it happened I didn't know what happened. My head was still throbbing three days later and now 4 days later it still is sore to the touch. I'll have to get some pix as soon as my family gets back from Milwaukee, as they took all 4 of the digital camera'* (I guess they never thought I might have a need for one -I like to take a pic or two every so often when I'm out partying -which I did a bit of last night)!!!
