You probably have a $500 deductible on collision, and $150 on
comprehensive. This would be a comprehensive claim, and you don't have
to implicate anyone. When my car was "keyed", I got it fixed. I never
named names, I wasn't even sure where is happened.

In another year or two, it won't look as good.
If my 2005 Escape got scratched, I'd get it fixed.
A proper repair on my car was to repaint to the nearest visual break. side

and a bumper strip.
