Default Is this morally wrong?

I got into an accident today. Totally not my fault, thought (for real). The guy was staring somewhere not in front of him, and hit me. Should I make the other person pay for my damages even if I know the person has a low salary?

Their car had minimal damages.

Yes. Had he been paying attention he wouldn't have hit your car. If his salary is that low he should try to avoid situations/habits that could cost him.

Legally, Yes, He's liable for all damages done unto your vehicle. Granted your insurance rates will go up quite a bit, You do have other options. I think it really boils down to you to be honest. It's your discretion whether or not you want to put more of a financial burden on this individual or possibly work something else out with him.

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.

Default Re: Is this morally wrong?

I had this happen, someone backed outta their parking spot into the bed of my truck once. Put a dent, which I didnt notice until I got home, but its kinda visable... But I let her go... Cause we are in High School, and its only like a $3000 truck, so nothing fancy, so a little dent didnt bother me... And I didnt let her go cause she is like the hottest girl in the school! lol. It did more damage to her car too.

Today was april fools day, so I was thinking about putting a note somewhere on her car saying, "This is for Hitting me!" and then either doing nothing, or sprinkling suger around the gas cap, but not in the tank, lol. But I didnt....
I tried the balloon over the exhaust on one of my friends, but the balloon wouldnt fit, lol.

Estimated around 2k. The car itself isn't worth enough to spend 2k on, so if I lose the claim, I lose my car.

I think he just hit a bad spot. He kinda hit right in front of the wheel, knocking the wheel a little loose and dislocating the hood.

If someone can't afford insurance then they shouldn't be driving a car on a public road.

To answer the interpreted question (Is his low salary an excuse for driving like a dumbass)
No, it's not.

Means jack as far as i am concerned. If you go on the road you are liable for any damages you cause insurance or no insurance, simple as that. Dunno the laws in the states but here in Australia 3rd party insurance is compulsory.

Well, here in the states, if you have insurance, your insurance company will pay for the damages. That's what they're for.

if you have a small dent, then no, i wouldn't bother going to your insurance or claiming or anything like that.


if there is like two grand of damage to your car, wheels knocked out of place and stuff, then your car sounds in very bad shape and you should definitly make a claim for it.

You must make her pay for it, regardless who it is, it was her fault, what if it had been a child she had hit instead of your car, she needs to be made aware of her mistake so she will have her wits about her at all times in future, I know she is a hot chick but that's no reason for you to have to pay for her mistake, if you let her off more the fool you, as I said before what if it had been your daughter, son, anyone for that matter?.
