Yea so my mom borrowed my car and was enjoying driving it and all of a sudden an idiot with an s10 decided not to look foward and proceeded to plow into the back of my car. I was not in the car, mom is ok but some good whiplash. The guy produced no insurance card at the scene and when we went to court he plead GUILTY to NO insurance. he went out and got it 2 days after, yes after the accident. aaaaaaaa I hate stupid drivers. Damage estimate before pulling the car apart is $7000.
Atleast i have a company car so I don't have to deal with rentals, but come on people if you can't drive ge the F**K of the d**n road. Hear are a few pics to show the damage. Sorry not the best pics the camera was on a weird setting i did not realize and i was shaking just looking at my car.
(first posting of pics so if they don't work bear with me)

So is your insurance paying for it or what... do YOU have insurance? Cause if you don't then... gosh, well that would just be hypocritical...

Hehe, jk, I know how you feel man... got T-boned a little while ago... similar damage estimate...

Um, you do realize that if he was at fault your insurance comapny should be sueing him for the cost of the repairs, medical bills, etc. and not just the deductable.

That would be my thought too, he'll still have to pay his deductible though as that's the insurance he has. But, his insurance company will go after the uninsured driver to re-coop their damages. That's the thing about liability and insurance, they're two different things. He is liable and if he doesn't have insurance, well he's still liable, he'll have to figure out a way to pay for it or go bankrupt. Your insurance though takes you out of all this mess because you have uninsured motorist. Just my $0.02...

i realize this but i am not sure if they will also go after my deductable since it is not their cost, or if they do go after it they may not go after it as hard. Also we are looking at going after him for lost wages for my mom. got several lawers involved.
Thanks for all support
