  • it depends, if she turns it into her insurance, your friends insurance will go up but your car will be able to get repaird if you call it into your insurance. One time I got into an accidendent and the guy who hit me wanted me to to get an estimet of the damage and he paid me out of pocket for the damage so his insurance wouldn't go up.

  • see if you can work something out

  • Well, if it were a "friend" as you stated and not a friend, then I wouldn't consider them much of a buddy. In that case, yes, I'd swap insurance information.

  • It would depend on the amount of damage to my car, and if she could afford to have it repaired.

  • I'd have to say depending on the damage. If its a little damage and she can pay for it, work something out. if its a great deal of damage and will be expensive. file with insurance.

  • For me, it would depend more on the amount of damage done to the car than how close of a friend she was. If it's not too bad, then I would just request that she pay for the repairs. Otherwise, yes I would turn it into her insurance company.

  • Yes....I always turn that stuff into never know if they will actualy do what they say about working to fix it. I have tried the "work it out" thing before and I ended up having to fix it because she baled on it.

  • Work it out with her. That way neither of your insurance dues go up.
