Default Bad Night

I feel really bad for my neighbor who walked between my Atom and my Lambo last night and broke my drivers rear view mirror : ( He is more than willing to pay for the damage but I know it was a accident. Anyone have a idea of what I'm looking at to fix. Thanks in advance.

It's not spring loaded? That's a pretty bad design if hitting it while walking can do that damage.

I think the law only requires it to be srping loaded in the other direction ie hitting someone driving forward. But I agree, weird that something minor like that can break it.

there is a diy write up on lamboweb,com

most likely the post inside is broken. i would suggest replacing the parts inside instead of repairing.

Repair if possible to avoid painting issues

It's really nice to see you're concerned about your neighbor. In Europe we have this idea that Americans are always sueing each other for anything and everything.
I hope you will find an elegant solution.

You're an awfully magnanimous guy. Sure it was an accident, but if that happened to my car, I'd expect my friend to pay for the repair, just as I would have insisted on paying for it had I been the clutz. There are -- or should be -- consequences to one's actions. Running someone over and saying it was an accident doesn't quite negate the fact that you ran someone over!

I don't know, I think he did the right thing.

Once, my brother accidentally did some damage to my new jetski. He was acting like an idiot before, but the damage actually happened completely by accident. He had alot more money than me, and I couldn't afford to fix it. I let him pay for the repair, but I've never forgiven myself for it. You see, he's the kind of guy that would share anything, and if something happened to it by accident while under your control, he wouldn't even think twice about making you pay for it.

Since then, and especially since I've become "not needy", I've taken his approach. I'm all for sharing my stuff with friends and loved ones. And if something gets damaged, as long as it's a complete accident (nothing foolish), then it's my responsibility to fix it.

The physical damage is easily repairable and affordable. But the loss of a friend or relationship is priceless.
