But glad you guys are working it out in a friendly manner. I have had my vehicles hit numerous times and it is aggravating but one day it will be my fault so I want to be treated nicely as well.
I don't want a check from him for that vary reason... in case something were to be wrong with the check or, like you said, additional damages are found and he's already given a check.
The way we are doing it will be better... CW did the estimate, will be repairing this week. He'll pay with a CC. I've already got a claim number from his insurance company, so if need be I can call them back and have his insurance kick in. He just doesn't want to claim it on his insurance, and his insurance is fine with that as well. So I told his adjuster to just leave the claim open till the repairs are done and paid for. So that's the Plan B.
We'll be fine. Plan C, should it ever get that far would be to go through my own insurance and have them go back after his and get reimbursed, etc. But Plan B is already rolling so I don't think we'd ever get there.
