My car was dented by a female throwing a bottle of vodka at her boyfriend, it missed him and landed on my bonnet.
Police were called and girl was arrested. I was asked by the police to put a price on the damage; I quoted them the price of my excess which was £150 and intended to make a claim on my car insurance.
However, on refelection I don't see why I should make a claim and feel that the girl should pay the full cost of repairs. Do I get quotes and inform the police of the cost, do I get the repairs done anyway and present the court with the bill or am I expected to claim on the insurance.
