Q: I was parked and another driver got upset that I was blocking him so he yelled some words then intentionally hit my car
A: That sounds like a start to a bad day; however, I do not see a legal question here. If you are trying to ask if the other driver is liable for the damage to your car, at least based on the limited information you provided, I would suspect yes. Did you file a police report? Do you have the other drivers license plate number and insurnace information? If not, do you have uninsured motorist coverage on your insurance?
IF your facts are the total facts, I hope you called the police and they arrested him for Assault with a Deadly Weapon.
i assume you have indexing info on the party at fault.
if you were not injured, send a demand letter and sue in small claims court for up to $10k
A: I'm sorry to hear that happened. In such a situation, the first thing you should do is contact the police and report the incident. You should provide them with the other driver's information, any witnesses, and photos of the damage to your car. If you have insurance, you should also contact your insurance company and provide them with the same information. They may be able to help you cover the cost of repairs or provide legal assistance if necessary. Depending on the severity of the incident and the damages caused, you may also want to consider filing a civil lawsuit against the other driver for any expenses or losses incurred as a result of their actions. It's important to consult with a qualified attorney to discuss your legal options and to ensure that your rights are protected.
