    You Decide....

    The scenario...

    So I'm at a post-Halloween party, and somehow wind up being one of the oldest people there. Not a shock, I suppose (Tash, I'm breaking your knuckles with the first wise *** comment...) but anyway I digress.

    The party was thrown by the waitstaff and bartenders of my favorite local watering hole, so I felt obliged to attend. One of the waitresses has been dating a complete Douchebag for an unexplainable period of time. Tonight, he decided at some random moment, that because she had spoken to another guy at the party (that tawdry tramp. I dunno how he "allows" her to work in a bar.) then she must be messing around with said guy behind his back. So deadbeat jumps into HER car and drives off in a hizzy. Less than a mile from the house, promptly wrecks and most likely totals her car. Unfortunately, he walked away without a scratch. He left the scene and her car. The cops came and have towed her vehicle.

    Now the jackass wants her to take the fall for it. His justification is that if she takes the blame, her insurance will cover it and her car will get replaced.

    I now open it up for discussion.

    P.S. The only reason I didn't donkey punch him is I like my job and the ability to pay my mortgage.

    mmm was the guy drinking and the reason he wants her to take the fall so it doesn"t get a DUI?

    anyway i think its up to her and her feelings towards the guy.

    just messin with ya man..............thats always no good when a person leaves the scene. Here in Cali if you leave the scene, depending on the damage done not her vehicle ie goverment property post sign or whatever! She can be charged or fined for leaving the scene of an accident! Up to her and strongly suggested she make adecision asap! longer it goes the harder!

    Yeah, he came back to the party and admitted to everyone there that he wrecked her car. Then proceeded to ask her to take the blame.

    The cops came to the scene, since the vehicle was abandoned, they towed it. Most likely they will contact her today or tomorrow and ask her what happened. I told her she needed to just tell the truth and let him hang. Leaving the scene is a misdemeanor at worst, felony at best. Neither of which she should suck up for that POS.

    well i dont know how she feels towards him and some times when you get angry over stuff like that you do stuff that your regret in the long run, for instance she could send him to jail for a couple yrs in california if your under the influence and you leave the scene, personally i would throw his ssa right into the fire, and let him pay for everything, i mean if he goes to jail is she gonna regret it later on?

    In addition to the obvious issue of fraud if she makes a claim, she also needs to be aware that this incident could well impact her rates in the future and cost her $$ well beyond the life expectancy of the relationship....

    IMHO NO WAY she should even consider covering the BF on this! BTW - does he have insurance or not?

    not to long ago my fiance took a speeding ticket for me my license was suspended and i still hear about it i kinda wish i went to jail lol but any way if i wreck her car she would send me to jail in a heartbeat and she loves me any man who loves his girlfriend would not put her in a position to make that decision she is the one who will take the finicial impact they are not married so if he leaves her today she will be stuck with that car note and no car

    She has full coverage, so in the event that he does not have adequate insurance she would be covered under the "uninsured/underinsured" portion of her coverage. The issue, from a legal standpoint, is that the car was wrecked, the driver left the scene. Whoever gets pegged with that is looking at a misdemeanor.

    Her car will be fine, from a coverage standpoint, no matter who is blamed. I'm just stunned that A) he'd even think it was cool to try to get her to take the fall, and B) that she would even think about it for 30 seconds.
