I hit a mirror on another car in my back alley a couple of weeks ago, and since the repair to the other car will cost about the same as my insurance deductible ($500), I have decided to not go through insurance so my rates don’t go up. I am wondering, however, about having the owner of the other car sign some kind of quit claim or something, indicating that he agrees that the mirror repair is the only damage I did to his car, and I am completely released from all current and future claims from him once this mirror is repaired.
What do you think? Is this necessary?Is it a good idea? How would you handle this?
