About a month ago, I'm in the middle of making a 3-point turn in a residential neighborhood, and get hit by a car. It was totally his fault. He was going pretty slow: it's just minor damage. I get all his info (except his insurance because he didn't have his card with him), and all is well. The estimate turns out to be about $700. I've been calling, but I can't get ahold of him. This, in itself, doesn't really worry me because I have his driver's license number and his tags. I can always call my insurance company to file a claim, and THEY can track him down. The thing is, if I get it fixed, it'll take at least 4 days, and I'll have to foot the rental car cost (because it's not covered in my policy). I don't really care about my car, it's a POS anyway - is it worth it to pay the rental car fee? I'm thinking of letting the accident slide, but on the other hand, I feel like I lost something. Any ideas?
