Wind incident | Door open

by Brandi

A person opened their car door and the wind caught it and it hit my car very hard and dented my door scratched the paint to the bottom of the surface.

They left their name and phone number describing what happened. Is their insurance responsible?

Answer to Wind incident | Door open

Hello Brandi,

Interesting. Well, two things could have happened here:

The person opening open the door and the wind helped the hand hit your car OR, the person let the door go and the wind pushed the door into your car.

In either scenario, the person opening door had to do the reasonable thing and be careful of all objects around, including holding on to the door. Most policies do provide coverage for “loading or unloading” passengers and/or cargo.

You lose nothing by filing a claim with their insurance company.

Good Luck,
