Possible Car Accident Question

Just now, a woman who does not live in my apartment complex, but visiting someone, by deciding to park in a lane, that is not for parking, in her little car, managed to rear end my car 3 times. My children notified me of it, then I just went down stairs. I started to type in her license plate details, and she and her entire family started to approach me. Flipping out on me in a language other then German.

Finally we came to speaking in English about what had happened. She didn't even apologize. She wanted to me to agree that the damage that was already there. There was damage there, from another person that did a hit and run 9 months ago on it. So this time I wanted details when I could get it. Apparently the father of this girl was having a laugh about it didn't matter to keep plowing away on it because it was already damaged. I have hydraulics on this car that are very fragile. And maybe nothing is damaged, but, the idea, that because my car does have work on it that needs to be done, it is acceptable to ram it 3 times so much that it shook by what everyone said.

One of the neighbors told me not to bother with calling her back. Report it directly to the police and they will notify her, and pay damages. I rather nothing happen with it at all, but, I mean the audacity. I guess I am answering my own question because I just went outside and the neighbor just told me what to do. But, any other advice?

I am quite rolling my eyes and furious at the moment.

Hi Confloozed,

I would follow the advice of the neighbor and call the police and report it. It seems like you don't want to make a big deal from it and if the lady and family was at least apologetic about it, that might be the end of it. Since they were not and I agree with you that previous damage or not, they don't have the right to abuse your property. I believe they should be taught a lesson about respecting people's property. It also sounds like there were witnesses so I think you have a case to have them at lease pay for an inspection to ensure nothing was really damaged. Better to be safe than sorry later. Good luck.

I think that is a good idea if your car is in good condition. If it's old & looks a bit battered its probably not a good idea, as you might get an immediate invite for an MFK.
