It could go either way. I've been in your situation and I opted to just let them go as I know body work, But again, Only a decision you can make.

Good Luck.
really you should consider how much it will affect your insurance first. if it will cost you more in the long run with a higher insurance rate than just fix it yourself I would do it myself. also you could really screw this guy in the long run and basically make him unable to be able to afford driving. my crappy neighbor got hit by a teenage driver and sued with "injury problems" and now this girl will not be able to drive until she pays off the suit.
try pros and cons they never fail

And, if Illmatic chooses to sue for damages, he needs to consider the court cost, which might not be awarded to him meaning he'd have to pay for that.

That might not be a bad thing if he can't keep his eyes on the road though.
