    Default Re: car accident common damage to car can i do the body work myself

    Same thing happened to me!

    When I returned to my car this afternoon after being at the doctor's there was a small dent near the front driver door. I am 100% sure it wasn't there before, because I happened to wash the car this morning, and I would have noticed it if it was there.

    For a dent this small I dont even want to bother with the police or insurance. Is there some way I can fix this myself? I recall seeing commercials to all sorts of products which supposedly can help with body repair?

    Default Re: what to do when parking car is hit

    Here is what should be done if you hit a parked car:

    1) Attempt to locate the owner
    2) If owner not found, leave a note on windshield with phone number, DL number, and insurance information
    3) Call to Report to the police, to be on the safe side

    In most cases, you will have to pay the deductible.

    Best to always leave a note even when there is no damage (There might be some you didnt see). I don't think there would be jail time for this especially if there's no damage, but why risk it

    So I guess in the opposite situation when someone hit your parked car and left no note:

    1) Attempt to locate witnesses
    2) File police report
    3) File insurance claim

    First: Read over the posts in the thread.

    Second: Get their Tag Number if you can along with the Vehicle Make&Model.

    Third: Call you local Highway Patrol or Sheriffs Office. The general rule for calling 911 is either Dying or Gushing Blood.

    Default Re: if i bring my car to the police can they tell if someone hit me

    I found a dent yesterday in my car but to be honest there's the possibility I caused the dent last week when I backed out improperly from the garage (though I though I didnt notice the dent then)

    if i bring my car to the police do you know if they have some sort of expert that can determine whether someone hit me

    I think a body shop would be more appropriate if you want to determine whether your car was hit by another car, I don't think police will assign an "expert" for this...

    But once you get an opinion from the body shop you should call your insurance agent and ask him what your next steps should be...

    Police Detectives have their own methods they can interview people on the scene, get access to security cameras, and so on.

    But even if there's no chance the police would find the hit n run driver, filing a police report is generally required for insurance claim purposes.

    Default Re: car - damage to side of car

    My car (2004 Volkswagen Jetta) had over $1,000 damage to its side a few years ago under similar circumstances (car hit, no note left, parking lot, etc)

    Police never found who did it

    Right, in some types of insurance claims the insurance company won't do anything without a police report.
