Re: Parking Lot fender bender - my obligations?

Thanks for the reply. Yes the "by 6PM in cash with no bill" part set off my hackles too. The police have already requested he bring his vehicle come in to the report centre so it can all be documented, and I agree that going forward I think that I will let insurance take care of this one.

Re: Parking Lot fender bender - my obligations?

Is your question about your obligations to report to insurance, report to police, provide info to them, or to pay? Hmm all of the above I guess. I'm primarily concerned that I do the right thing here (legally) and that it doesn't reflect badly on me at the end of the day. A secondary concern is als...
