Can I sue someone for scratching my car or at least make him pay for it?

Asked 10 months ago - San Antonio, TX

A guy I live with scratched my car while backing out of the drive way. I know it was him because he has a scratch on the side of his car also. He will not talk to me about it. Is there anything I can do to make him pay for it?

    In no way am I offering you legal advice, and in no way has my comment created an attorney-client relationship.... more
