Exclamation Passenger Side Door Dent and Scratches

accidentally hit another person's car and I'm not sure how much its gonna cost (there is a small dent and scratches at passenger side doors). So don't know to go for a private settlement or insurance

Any advice.

the damage is across 2 side doors?
re-do and repaint for 2 side doors. the other party may also rub in polishing + coating + downtime.

see what is the first assessment after discussing with the other party.
if he wants all in, then go for insurance settlement.

if some amount, then go for ptv settlement and seal it with a paper acknowledgement signed off.

Yes damage across 2 doors. Mostly paint and scratches. A small dent at the front door.

Initally said around 1K damage. Dont think this is gonna cost that much. Other party suppose to comeback. Haven't heard anything yet.

Firstly depend on the car model. New car or those very old car? The other party going back agent do up or outside workshop. 2nd see how much u willing to compensate the other party and if u want to protect ur Ncd. Some ppl canít afford to repair them they tell them to claim insurance, some die die donít want claim from their insurance and prefer to come out from own pocket which I have encounter before.
