My sister and her best friend were involved in an accident. Some car stopped short at a yellow light that just turned. The car in front of my sister stopped just short of hitting that first car. My sister BARELY missed hitting the second car. Her friend was behind her and just ended up rearending her. His car is ****ed up pretty good. What it is worth, it is likely totaled but he will likely be able to fix it. My sisters bumper is scratched and the paint is spiderwebbed, THAT IS IT. Now the car was just recently fulled painted. Paint isn't perfect at this point, the paintjob was very good for what it cost but there are already scratches in it and such. She is 16, things never end up perfect when you are 16 driving a nice car. At this point, she is telling him he has to pay to repaint the bumper(she JUST noticed the spiderwebbing when this happened 2 days ago). He says he won't he can't afford to do that and repair his car and such. He told her if she wants he will give her another bumper with nothing wrong with it(which Id on't think there is anything wrong with hers either and neither does he), but she wants him to pay for the repaint. She looks at it as, "rear end is his fault no matter what". I look at it as, she is damn lucky she didn't rear end the other car or else that would be her fault and her ar would be ****ed. The fact that she didn't is just luck. When she called me afterwards she made it sound like she had to swerve to avoid hitting it, so her friend was left with no where to go. If it were me and my best friend, I'd tell him to forget about it, worry about your stuff, I'll take care of mine if I care that much. I can understand wanting him to take care of it I guess, but me I wouldn't do that. Opinions?
