Was in accident on way to work, was given warning ticket for improper passing. Damage was minor to other party, damage to wheel and fender. My vheicle was damaged on corner of door and front fender also. Should i pay for damages to my vehicle or does it not make difference and just do a claim??

How much is your damage?  Have you have it looked at and estimated?  What is your deductible?

 

If the damage exceeds the deductibkle, can you afford to pay for it to be repaired?

 

How is your driving record otherwise?

 

Claims can be complicated and time consuming.  Coupled with the moving violation, a collision claim could possibly increase your future premiums.  Even with the citation, paying for the repairs might help keep that increase lower.
