Insurance Question from Minneapolis, MN
Asked on 10/13/2015
My landlady hit my parked car when she was parking in front of our house. Is it legal for her to deny me her insurance info? I got 3 estimates for the damage, and all three were over $1,000. She would rather pay me out of pocket, but the auto repair agent I talked to said it would be easier for her to file a claim with her insurance company and use her insurance. Plus, it would pay for a rental car for me to go to work the two days it would be in the shop at no cost to her. Is there a specific law that I can show her that says she is required to give me her insurance info and file a claim?
