Please help I got into a small accident

If the vehicle is in your parents name then they are the ones that make this decision.

Looks like a couple of grand repair to me; maybe more if the rear suspension is damaged because it looks like the tire has been scuffed pretty good.

there is no damage to the house it was a brick wall that the car bumped into

hmm okay thank you!

That reinforces the possibility that there could be damage to the rear suspension, or at least the need to do a wheel alignment.

I was just making assumptions
You just wanted to know how much it cost to fix
You might not want to make a claim
If it was $300 maybe you might pay
Maybe mom/dad don’t know about it
