i live in california san diego


Unless there was a witness who saw what happened, it would be impossible to find out who it was. If the damage is very minimal, it's best to just pay out of pocket rather than making a claim thru your insurance.

You're screwed. Report it to the cops, but nothing will become of it.

You can't. You or your insurance has to pay for it.

You mean your car got damaged by someone else's vehicle while parked somewhere ?

Report it to the police and hope they catch someone.

Unless you have a witness and at the very least, the license plate number of the other vehicle, you're out of luck. Your collision coverage will cover the damage to your car.

fbi?? Pretty much impossible. Just get it fixed.

I think you're pretty much out of luck. My car was hit in my apartment parking lot, but even still, the most I could do is suspect someone with a maroon car - I could approach them and ask if it was them. The problem is that if they didn't leave a note, they probably wouldn't fess up anyway.
Usually insurance will cover it as hit and run - that is, if the deductable is low enough.

If there was no note on your windshield, you're pretty much out of luck. It just basically mean, no one saw it happen.

Sir,look out for any traffic cameras or nearby surveillance cameras from any buidlings.If you approach the person or building authorities whose camera you think might have recorded that incident you may probably find that person who scratched your car.

or you can also probe some of the neoghborhood shop keepers or somebody whos there always on behalf of their job.

I don't think there is anything you can do to find them if they left.

If they took off, than you cannot find them. You just have to hope someone saw them and will tell you soon.

Well, you can consult a psychic. It's not likely to work, even though you are in the psychic capital of the US.

Most of the time, that means you have to pay for the scratch yourself. Likely, fixing a scratch is going to be under your deductible.

If they had no cameras to catch the person your just fresh out...sorry charlie. call your ins company asap tho

Not much if no one saw it just pay your dedutcable and move on hope you have full covrage
