Sorry i posted that info. in another thread and i absent mindly just posted this. A hammer fell on me at work last weekend and im still a little out of it from the concussion, been a bad coupla weeks. That was from march 18 on my way to work a car full of people pulled out to take a left when i was about 20ft away and doing 45mph. Rather than t-bone them i swerved and crashed through the front of their car. They were on a stop sign at an intersection that t-ed into the road i was on. I had no traffic signal to obey.

The other driver got the ticket for failure to yield whiel turning left. One of the passenges in the other vehicle sustained some kind of injury from not wearing a seatbelt, i dont really care what it was. After i got out and we were standing around 2 of the passengers felt it necessary to talk shit to me despite it being theyre fault. but meh. damage estimate was about 9500

Holy crap, the damage estimate was $9,500? I'm surprised your insurance didn't total the car. With a 2002 model you are skating a fine line between still getting it repaired and it being totalled, you came in just under the car's value!

yea trust me that was a see-saw battle that i really wanted to go towards total but by some fluke they valued the car higher than any of us probably would have thought, 12xxx. Theres some serious damage all right side body panels, front axle,front suspension.

I'm going to be damn sure that its fixed to my satisfaction and probably because the other companies paying for it but my insurance agent said he feels the same way and was very clear that if anything could "even loosely be connected" to the accident it would be fixed. If it all gets done correctly i will have a lot of things brand new and it could be great. Chances are its gonna be a big headache but i couldnt get them to total it so i gotta sort it out this way.

jerbo what kinda "shit" did they say.....im just curious of their stupidity
The driver was 57 and he had 2 male passengers and 1 female passenger, the female was injured. The other two were calling me a puckass motherfu.. and all manner of other obscenities. They tried to accuse me of speeding etc. Independent witnesses verified the truth but the cops did have nice words about "he could have been going 100mph you have to look left and yield before making a turn" i was just glad that no one got hurt and i was really amazed that i managed to swerve so well and avoid t-boning these people. Even if they werent appreciative we were all lucky to be standing there.
