Spartanburg, SC asked in Civil Litigation and Car Accidents for South Carolina

Q: Should I tell the adjuster about the conversation the insurance representative, the owner of the vehicle and myself had?

I was in an accident on 8/8/19 but I wasn't injured. The FR 10 shows the other party for being at fault. On the TR 310 form the other party admits to making a right turn on red while I had the left green protected area. On 8/15/19 I write the owner of the vehicle. I explained to the other party that the information that the driver provided the officer was inaccurate due to the owner of the vehicle not matching or the insurance company information not matching. While talking to the insurance company on 8/20/19 she informs me that the other party doesn't want this accident to go on his insurance so he'll pay for your damages out of pocket. She also tells me that he's even offering to pay for you a brand new bumper. This is a conversation I'm having with the insurance representative with the other party present. I submit a claim but was it was denied. Should I tell the adjuster about tbe other party agreeing to oay for the damages out of his pocket to avood it going on his insurance?
