    Angry Car = Totaled


    So I was turning off for Father Morriesett Blvd on to Aiken Street today and I had a green arrow so I started to turn and next thing I know I am sideways across the fucking bridge. Some dude in a civic hit my car and the airbags went off and my door is fucked! FUCK FUCK FUCK.

    So now get to battle with insurance and find a new car...FUCK!

    I do have the receipt, but I dont believe they will reimburse labor, nor do I believe I have aftermarket coverage. Oh well, if they do rule it as totalled I take the aftermarket deck and subs out and put the stock radio back in.

    I HATE INSURANCE COMPANIES!

    They werent bad today, but more to come tomorrow I am sure.

    Tomorrow I have to go to the police department and file a report and get the cops accident report. My throat still feels like shit from the airbag powder too, that shit is nasty!

    That sucks, but the most important thing is that no one was hurt. Sheet metal, and cars can be replaced.

    If the accident was the other guys fault, it will be his insurance compant that picks up the bill. Get to the doctor and get checked out. As for the stereo, find out if the car is totaled. If it is, find out where it is, and get permission from the holding yard to "remove your personal belongings".

    Good Luck..

    It has nothing to do with your insurance company. It is HIS insurance company that you will be claiming from.

    You must insist on getting EVERYTHING paid for. They will pay for everything that you have lost.

    where is the car now?

    get the radio and subs now if possible, once the insurance company steps in, and its in a garage/impound/junk yard... you wont get that stuff back, unless you bring something to replace the parts you want. its effed up. i had to get a radio/sub/amp back from a totalled car this time last year. when the wrecker took the car away originally, the guy was like yea come by any time and get your stuff. Then i got there, a day or two later, and they were not gonna let me near the car unless i had soemthing to replace anything i took out. i slipped the guy a few bucks to get him to let me into the smack up yard and he eventually let me in after some more debating.

    Save all of your receipts for everything extra to the car, you can usually get them to pay for anything custom (i.e., if your car had a body kit, etc.). You might even tell them that the stereo is broken, and that they're gonna need to buy you a new one

    Also - I believe it is federal insurance law (I'm too lazy to get off my ass and look it up, though) that they HAVE to settle with you within 30 days.

    I work for a company in the Wanalancit Mills and I frequently drive through that intersection. I have had too many close calls to count there. You have an arrow and people are still turning left in front of you coming from the other direction. I don't know for sure if it is impatience or faulty signaling but that intersection is definitely dangerous.

    My car is inside my body shop, locked in the garage. I will be calling him today, to take car of all the stereo stuff.

    That intersection does suck, I agree, but its the fastest way to get back to UML, especially if there is an assload of traffic, which Lowell usually has.

    All I have heard from people at school was thank god you werent on your bike, thank god you werent on your bike! Yes Yes I know this, but its 24 degrees out, so no I wasnt on my bike.

    You can also get their insurance company to cover SOME of the sales tax you are about to pay becasue if it wasn't for him totalling your car, you wouldn't be faced with that. I was in a similar postion and they paid for 50% of my sales tax when I bought a new car.

    If they deny, threaten to sue. He took away your car and forced you to spend money, you can screw him for that.

    While you're at it, get a rental car at the other insurance companies expense. If it was his fault and he hit you, call the other insurance company and demand a car from whatever institution they use. Again, he took away your car and transportation, it'd be cheaper for them to pay for a rental then triple damages in court when it ultimately goes your way.

    I live in NH, so I wont pay sales tax for a new car. However I just got the police report and it states that both drivers stated they had the green light, which means I will likely be found half at fault because I entered oncoming traffic. We'll see!

    If you are turning right and you have a green light, you have the right of way, not the people making a left turn across traffic even if they have a green light as well. Don't take any BS from them!
