right i will try and briefly explain my predicament,6 weeks ago i was dropping off a friend at manchester airport.as i pulled into the drop off zone traveling aprox 2mph there was people walking in the area on the ns of me so i was conscious of them and also conscious of a fiat parked on the os of me but there was no one in it,suddenly the passenger door flew open and hit my osf wing,i couldnt avoid it,i was approx 3foot away from the fiat.i then noticed a lady lying across the front seats,she apologised and said her drivers door doesnt open so she has to lean across to the passenger door and get out that side but she had lost control of the handle but its all right as theres no damage done,i couldnt beleive this as it hit my car with a right bang so got out and sure enough there is a big dent in the wing,the prnds lights also started flashing at the moment of collision.i pointed this out to the lady(loose term as she instantly started screaming abuse saying that the damage was allready there),anyhow due to her rantings i just waited for a police patrol to pass,meanwhile she drove off,a few minutes later she walked past me into the airport and carried on her screaming at me.
i only waited for 5 minutes before a patrol passed so i stopped them and reported it to them,eventualy they found the lady and she didnt deny her inability to control her door but says that her door hit me in a different place than where the damage is,even though there was clear paint transfer of her car to mine which the police man noted and suggested it was fine for me to give his name as witness to this.
i have got all her details,its her mums car so is insured for her by her mum.
i have max no claims so dont want to be claiming through my own insurance so i contacted her insurance straight away.
as of yet i havent heard back from her insurance.
what are my options anyone?
my damage is only a dent to my wing and i have had the gearbox ecu repaired.
