So a couple of weeks ago I parked at my apartment building and when I came back to my car the following day, I found a note that I had hit the car beside me when I parked and that the other party had CCTV evidence. Of course, I did not feel it the previous day, so I went to the building manager to ask whether they can show me CCTV to confirm the claim. They said that the police had already been contacted and that they are unable to show me the footage as a result, but that they have seen it and can confirm that I had hit him. Also, the scratch marks on my vehicle and the other parties vehicle line up - but how do I know it wasn't him who hit me and is now trying to put it on me!
When the police finally reached out to me, they noted that the CCTV footage had already been deleted so now I will never be able to see it. However, they have the manager's testimony on file. Is this enough to establish a case in Ontario, Canada? Note that the damage is minor, but I'm just curious about how the evidence is weighed here.
My first experience with the law, excuse the naivity! Thanks!
