I hit (rolled into) the car in front of me while traveling 5-10 mph. The other driver and myself both agreed there was no damage to the cars. The police were not called. There was no accident report filed. Now she says her neck hurts and wants me to pay $480 for phisical therapy (she has not seen an MD) and she claims I broke her tail light. It is phisically impossible for me to brake her tail light as both of our bumpers keep us from touching in that area. I don't trust her. I think she just wants some quick money.

The question is should I pay her off and have her sign a release and be done with her or should I turn this over to my insurance. I hesitate to turn it over to them as they will raise my insurance rates. What do you recommend?

My response:

It's either pay her, or pay your insurance rates. Either way, you're going to pay, so you may as well turn it over to your insurance company.
