I live in California. Yesterday night, I backed up into someone while trying to leave a party. My bumper rubbed against his and caused some paint damage. He came out and we both examined the car. He said it was ok and that everything was fine and that we should just forget about it. Today, he says that it is worst than he thought and appears worst in the day light and wants me to pay. Am I liable even though he said that it was ok at the time? The car was not his and was his mom's and I did admit that it was my fault on scene.

Of course you are liable because you hit the car and caused the damage. I suggest you settle or face the consequences of dealing with his Mom. And boy is she tough. Answer her back and she will hit you upside the head.

DOUGWHEAT, IT IS SO UNFORTUNATE, YOU ARE LIABLE. IT IS EASIER TO SAY OK THAN TO MEAN OK.BE CAREFUL. <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face=" Arial, Verdana, Helvetica">quote:</font><HR>Originally posted by Dougwheat:
