    Default Parking Lot Fender Bender in Arizona

    Hi Folks!

    When my wife dropped off the kids at the school earlier today, she got involved in a parking lot accident at the school (directly on the school's parking lot).
    She was in the process of backing out with our car, while somebody else tried to park next to her. She was halfway out of her parking space when he tried to get into another parking space next to her and that's when he lost one of his headlights, and some damage (not worth a divorce ) was caused to our car.
    Since both were in a hurry they exchanged names and phone numbers.
    My wife gave him the name of our car insurance company, but did not ask for his insurance company etc.
    The police was not called.
    Now the big question: Who pays what? Is it everybody pays for the own damage? Do we have to call the insurance companies?

    I never had an accident in my whole life, so I am not sure what the situation is in this case, especially it is hard to figure out who was at fault.
    The entire thing took place in Arizona.

    Any valuable information is greatly appreciated.

    Thanks in advance for your help,
    Michael.

    Your wife should call & report the acc. to your ins. co. Your wife can call & ask the other party for their ins. co. so she can furnish it to your co. (they always ask for other person's ins. co.) or if the other party calls his ins. co. & they call your ins. co., your ins. co. will get his info at that time. The ins. companies will determine fault from the info furnished.

    I'm glad you're not getting a divorce over this - accidents happen.
    Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.
