Bye car

Thursday, December 29, 2011

Today my daughter and I went to the junkyard where our car is sitting since the accident when it was ruled undrivable.
It will be going about an hour and a half away tomorrow to a place where a claim adjuster will look at it and decide whether to junk it or fix it.
As soon as my daughter downloads the photos of the car to the computer I will show what the damage has been done to our car.
When looking at the damage take into account the other driver only had about 4 or 5 feet distance between us. (We were stopped at a stop light, that is why we were so close. We were not driving down the road).
If when you read this blog and the photos aren't on it, check back soon and i will have them added on to this blog.
Have a SAFE New Years to all my lovely sparkfriends!

Cold evening

I hope everybody stays warm also!

Day after Accident

Tuesday, December 27, 2011

I am having a lot of headache since the accident yesterday dealing with the other drivers insurance company.
Their company hasn't even called me back yet to confirm the accident. I need a rental car and their company is supposed to pay for it since he was 100% at fault.
I know these are expected headaches from an accident.
The worst part though is, I am starting to get head and neck aches from the accident so I have to go to the Emergency Room and we all know how long that can take.
I wish I could just go to sleep and wake up and everything will be back to the way it was!
I hope everyone has a safe holiday, and be careful out on the roads!

    I'm glad you're going to the doctor. You probably have a good dose of whiplash.

Now, when you get back... call a LAWYER. It won't cost you anything to have a consult, and if they represent you, it won't cost you anything unless you win. Insurance companies deal much differently with lawyers than they do with individuals. They are counting on you being unsure of your rights, what they should pay, and they are hoping they can bully you (even if using "nice" words) into accepting far less than you deserve. Even after what a lawyer takes from your settlement you will get a LOT more usually than just dealing with them yourself. I found that out fast years ago when I was in an accident that wasn't my fault. I tried to be nice and figured they would be fair... NOT. I got a lawyer and they were MUCH nicer. LOL

    Insurance companies are always this way now. They just rake in the money and don't want to do anything to earn it.

    Insurance agencies are a mess. Perhaps your insurance should interface with them - so you don't have to deal with it. Sometimes that helps .

It amazes me sometimes how commercials always show dealing with insurance companies like it's a snap and there they are to save you from everything. Should be considered false advertising. Hopefully that gets straightened out quickly and that you're feeling better soon.

    Very sorry to hear you have to go through yet another complication in life on top of not feeling well. I've always resented how victims of accidents and crime have to shoulder the burden of getting their life back together. On the bright side, you both have your lives, which is a big positive, right?

Car accident

Monday, December 26, 2011

My daughter and I went out today because she had a doctors appointment and then we went out to lunch. We drove out of the parking lot and up to the line of cars waiting at the stoplight.
We were just sitting there for about a minute when the driver ahead of us puts on his backup lights and stepped on the gas pedal so fast I didn't have time to think! He SLAMS into us and shatters the windshield, the airbags deployed and the front end of the car sustained extensive damage!
My daughter is 13 years old and she was pretty shook up as well as I was. She didn't even want to go to that town again after that.
I know she will again in time but it is always harder on the kids because their world is so traumatized by things more than adults.
We are totally in the clear as far as our insurance having to pay anything because we were not at fault at all.
Even the police that came out to the scene said there was a lot of damage for just backing up and running into someone. he told me he was going to give the other driver a ticket but he wasn't sure exactly what he was going to get him for. He seemed really frustrated with the other driver because he was backing up and trying to go another route instead of waiting for the traffic. He was impatient.
Oh well, we will see what comes of it. Our car is probably going to be totalled since there was so much damage done.
Hugs to all, I hope you all have a safe holiday season!

    I am so sorry that this happened to you & your daughter!!

What a pain that his inability to sit still a couple of minutes will now cause you hours and days of inconvenience. :(

My husband was at a redlight and rear ended by an 18 wheeler. It was such a bummer because his car was paid for and we had no desire for a new car note. At first he was not feeling injured, but 2-3 weeks later he actually had some pretty bad back pain surface. It can be very delayed -- so take it good & easy and take care!

So grateful that most importantly you are both fine! The car can be handled, but your lives are precious and irreplaceable!!

Take care! H U G S!!!

Here we are back from Christmas vacation.
We stayed in an awesome hotel in New Jersey!

There was a fitness room and pool also.
I want to go back again soon, since it was one of the nicest places we have ever stayed.
