My 2017 Bolt was struck by a car backing out of a parking lot. The damage is minimal but obvious.
I have all the insurance information, etc but not sure what to do next.

I don't really have time (nor do I want) to get it estimated AND fixed before the end of the month (Aug) when I plan to turn it in and lease another vehicle, possibly another Bolt.
Obviously, I will be penalized for the damage if I leave it as is.

Any suggestions?
