Default Soooo, i got hit again.

So last night I was comming home from Warped Tour with a buddy and We were sitting in bumper to bumper traffic, when a young girl in a buick slams into the back of my truck. She hit me pretty hard, but did no damage to my truck, but did smash my ford Trailer hitch light and one of my back-up lights. She had a circle mark shaped like my ford light on her bumper and her grill was cracked. She wasn't sure what to do so I told her the value of what she broke and told her, if she had cash to pay for the damage I was cool. she agreed and i followed her to a gas station where she gave me cash for it. Here's my question. Did
I do the right thing?

yeah, that's fine. she's gonna have to deal with insurance most likely, but it will still be cheaper for her in the long run to do that instead of file the claim for both vehicle's damages. did you give her any info to contact you?

as long as it was enough to repair the damage, i'd think it was ok. kinda like when i lost the brakes in my car and plowed under the back of my buddie's F350. destroyed his homaid bumper, and litterally tore the trim off the bumper & hood of my car, but everyone was ok. i helped him weld up a new bumper ( 1/2" I beam now instead of 1/8" angle iron, ouch! ) and i got to get rid of that ugly trim, so it all worked for the better, lol.

Wow, at least she stopped. Most would just drive off leaving you scratching your head.

As long as there was no major damage to your truck, you probably got more from her for your broken stuff than her insurance would have paid for.

Just hope you don't develop whiplash or something

I'd say you did the right thing. I would have done the same thing in the same situation.

i agree. as long as you don't get any neck pains or anything like that, you did the right thing. there's no need to get insurance companies involved for little shit like that. and you're helping everybody out. kept her rates from going up and saved her a citation. so she shoulda blew you or something. you really saved her ass. haha.

my brother had an issue like this a few years back, they paid him, no cops called. a week later he gets arrested for leaving the scene of an accident claiming he backed into them. Even if no insurance notified get a police report as it is costing my brother $$$$ and bullshit.
