If I just scratched another vehicle with my car door, should I contact USAA?
I don't know if should wait for the other driver to report the scratch. I've never been in this kind of situation before.

“The right thing to do would be to take a photo of the damage, take down the license plate number of the affected car, and contact USAA to let them know what happened.
You can also leave a note on the damaged car with your contact information, letting the other driver know that you’re in touch with your insurance company to rectify the situation. Since it sounds like the damage is minor, the impact on your rates should be relatively small.”

If I just filed a claim with State Farm, how long will it be until my Honda Civic is fixed?
I want to know how long I'll need to use a rental car before the claim can be processed and the damage repaired. I miss the familiarity of my Civic.
