I own a 2011 Toyota that got roughed up in an accident. My vehicle was parked legally. The other driver was probably not paying attention and rammed it from behind. The other driver is underaged, unlicensed, was riding with other underaged occupants. That driver is 100% at fault. So far the damages to my truck is $7,000, however the body shop hasnt begun the tear down to get to the repairs. Damages can increase if more damages are found.
Went to the KBB site to find out my cars value pre and post accident. Shows a difference of almost $4k. How do I recoup this amount? Do I go after the other person’s parents, their insurer, or both? Best to use a lawyer for this type of claim? Thanks
I own this vehicle, not leased.
