So i got into a car accident today. Someone hit me and damages are around $1500 to fix.

He was 100% at fault and says not to report to ICBC which he will pay for the damages to fix my car.

What should i do? Report to ICBC or get him to fix it??

As others have said, if he is willing to shell out the money to fix it 110%, then just avoid ICBC.

Unless he wants you to take your car in to some sketchy chop-shop or tries to cheat you, then you can get a third-party involved.

This happened once to me and it worked out but it was because the guy was driving a company vehicle.
Hockey is the only sport, the rest are just games.

He's taking my car to his friends dealership it would cost $1400...

But I went to another dealership they said it would cost around $1800..So maybe $400 difference is just a friend discount..

You need to be examined for soft tissue injuries. These are tricky things and can come back to bite you bad. I know from lots of experience. I strongly suggest reporting this accident for your own protection.

Report it. If he is willing to pay, I am guessing he was not insured, or he has been in a lot of accidents. REPORT IT. If he is uninsured, he needs to be taken off the road.

Report it, you can still tell ICBC you will be handling it outside of insurance. If he renegs for any reason then you at least have it on record.

Oooh - my first instinct was to report it. I agree with the injury line. If you have any pain whatsoever, report it, as you will be totally screwed in the long run if you don't.
Depends, I guess, on the damage and how you are feeling. If it's minor damage and you are fine, then settle out of ICBC, but if you have more major damage or are in any way hurt, report it to protect yourself.
Good luck!

Why bother buying insurance if you're not going to report accidents you are involved in? That's a big part of what it's for. Always report accidents. It's kind of like puckers who drive drunk... They need to be reported as do poor drivers. There's a chance this person may injure, maim or kill someone next time.

I strongly agree from experience as well. Furthermore, if there is some type of injury, it may initially be difficult to precisely diagnose.

I was initially diagnosed with a soft-tissue (muscle and ligament) injury to my back after being rear-ended by a drunken maniac, which in the end turned out to be a bulging disc (and I was in superb physical shape at the time).

Report it to ICBC and see a doctor. There is a routine exam doctors do for car accidents.

And do keep in mind that ICBC is there to protect the guilty party. They will also probably tell you up front that because your vehicle has minimal damage, it qualifies as a 'LVI' ('low velocity impact') and therefore no injury occurred, which is actually complete nonsense and carries absolutely no legal validity whatsoever.
