A little late to the discussion but since your insurance is already going to pay for the other car your rates will go up anyway that I doubt making the claim on your car will have much more impact.

FWIW, about 18 mos ago son sideswiped a car in school parking lot. we knew the family and handled it privately as I called the local insurance agent and based on their projected increase and the cost of the repair I have already saved the the cost of the paying for the repair out of pocket. Again since it was on "private" property no official police report though the School Resource officer did handle the exchange of information.
