Two most important things to take away from this thread. I wouldn't have left the parking lot without a police report, and some photos. I've heard of stuff like this happening so many times, I know better. People are always nice at the spur of the moment. Once they get home, and realize what this is really going to cost them (the repair, insurance going up, etc), and a few people whisper in their ear, they suddenly take a different tone, especially when they realize that once they get out of there, they're somewhat in the clear. It'* now your word against his/hers.

And as Will said, that'* what insurance is for. To take care of situations like this where you're responsible for damaging someone else'* vehicle/property.

As others have said, you definitely want to have the police involved. If you didn't have a resolution plan, I'd tell her that you plan to have her arrested.

I disagree with that, it wasnt a matter of being responsable (atleast not the accedent it'* self) I live in the same area as Jim and i know how windy it was that day, and you cant always predict and never control a big gust of wind.
As for her being a bitch afterward thats a bit of a different story, I can see her side of it, most people have know idea how much just a little bit of damage can cost and im sure it got her of gard when see saw the first price not knowing that it would end up being the lowest price. Now that doesnt excuse the way she acted but i dont think that it is a reason to try to screw her over (duffer26 )

As for the damage its self, from what i have seen at work (i work at a body shop for those that dont know) and from what you describe. the dent may be able to remove without any filling or sanding if the body shop has a paintless dent repair guy come in and do it (ding king or dent tech are two in our area i beleave) I dont remember what one we use at our shop and as for the scratched they almore always are only paint transfer that look like scratches but are not, and can be remover with good thinners, and polished out. But as for the mirror well no amount of polishing will fix that ...just some ideas as to get the prices down

the fact that it happened on private property doesnt matter, you need to just turn it in to your insurance and they will subrogate against her and she will have to pay whether she likes it or not, through her insurance company or out of pocket, and stop contacting her, u should have done that after the first time she denied ur first quote. You tried being a nice guy and working things out, she showed her ignorance, break off any contact, let ur insurance company handle it, that is what they are for, take it where u want to take it, they OWE u. if they will cut the check out to u outright, u take ur check and get it fixed where u want too, and pocket the rest, there is nothing wrong with that, u are entitled to recieve compensation for your damages PERIOD!!!--this is coming from my mother who works for one the top insurance company in the USA and has offices in Canada!! She knows her stuff, u know that Jim.

Well said SilverBullet I learned the hard way as well, luckily they got crossed up on their second version of the story and caved.
