Today I was involved in a minor accident. I was coming down a road which had no vehicles on my side and a car coming the other way (Which has cars parked) stopped behind a stationary car momentarily and then sped up to try and over take it as I was passing. The wing mirror on my Jag scraped the side of his Honda 4x4 (My wing mirror has a few scratches, his was left with a 12" scrape on his rear door). We stopped and I tried to explain that I had an unobstructed path and the right of way and he should have stopped but he was having none of it. He took my number plate and drove off (Not before I took his and got the number of witnesses).
Question is, should I now make a claim on his insurance for my tiny scuffs on my mirror or just leave it to see if he tries to make a claim then counter claim?
P.S. I have left details for my insurance company just in case but haven't made a claim but I have been told I can elevate it if need be.
So what do you think?
