The scratch is very tiny and can only be seen when the car door is opened. He pulled right next to a plastic sign and I didn't see it.so even though he's only requesting $100, make him go through my insurance company? he said typically, it'd cost a few hundred but a "buddy" of his is going to do the work.. i can guarantee he will take my $100 and pocket it... if i paid him directly, can i make him sign some sort of documentation that he won't come after me for additional money? Also, shouldn't he be responsible since I was a passenger and he was the one driving? If a person accidentally stains someone's car seat would they be held responsible? Seems as if it's the same type of unintentional mistake.
