Hi, I took my car to the jiffy lube for an oil change, while I was standing in the waiting area I heard a lady scream “omg ...omg ...omg”, when I got up to see what happens, I relaxed one of their technicians had ran my car into the car that was being serviced behind mine, she said that I’m sorry, it was on reverse, which was none sense.., anyways there is a license print damaged and couple of dip dints on my back number, which is a new bumper, they told me that a supervisor will call me, what are my options, if they don’t pay for it also am I entitled to any compensation? Shall I get an attorney?
I imagine their corporate risk management department will get in touch and work it out with you. Get an estimate to repair the damage. Preserve all the evidence. Get and keep the name and contact information of any witnesses. And don’t let many days go by without following up with them, if they don’t contact you first. If all this fails, then you might need to get a lawyer.

My colleague is right. Take photos, get an estimate. Get information including the name of the employee that was driving your car, and, if possible, the other driver's information. Contact the company's headquarters...they will very likely work it out without the need for an attorney.
