    you could waste money taking it to small claims court to get them to pay for it, or you could spend iton that ding…..last but not least you can make a reportto the insurance company of something happening to your car in a parking lot and if you got some good insurance they’ll cover it 100%…dont tell them i told you..lol

    NO! do NOT pay! this is 10000000% his fault! its his problem that he did that- you had absolutely nothing to do with this! i hope you wrote the licence plate number down of the car that he hit. you should definitely call your insurance company- it is his fault and you should not be the one paying!

    good luck! :)

    sounds to me like the sears people are responsable for the ding in your car and don’t want to deal with it themselves. you should take the manager and the worker to court for refusing because technically they are responsable and should have compensated.

    Technically, your vehicle damaged the other so you are at fault for the other vehicle. The damage to your vehicle will be covered under your comprehensive coverage. That’s the way insurance views it. However, if you explain the story to your carrier, they may, or may not do anything about it.
    If you do NOT want to go through insurance, then by all means try small claims court. It actually is not that time consuming or complicated to file, and you will need to have a record of the dates, times and the persons names you spoke to, as well as all receipts. You may very well win. But remember, you need the full name and address of the sales person, or the court will not know to whom to mail the notice.
