Just totaled my car.
Posted 30 November 2012 - 11:49 AM
My car is completely totaled and her car was pretty fuged up. She had her three month old baby girl in the backseat. Luckily both her and her child were ok.
I didn't want to go to in an ambulance from the scene, but I do have some back issues already and my back is already starting to hurt pretty bad. So I'm going to go to the doctor shortly. This is the only accident that I've ever had, involving another vehicle. Is there anything that I need to know, regarding medical care, to make sure that I'm compensated - you know, to avoid problems.

Glad no one was hurt serious.
Go straight to the Dr and tell them what happened... get copies of your records and keep them.
Don't take any poo from her insurance company and make them get you a rental car ASAP... like today.

Dont cash any check the give you until you have it all. I had an adjuster give me a check "for my car" one time only for the Ins Co to claim that it was the total settlement and since I cashed it that was deemed as me accepting their final settlement.

expect the two insurance companies to play the blame game and each try to stonewall the other. just stay in constant contact with your adjuster and keep good notes on each convo.
don't pull a lawyer into this unless you think one or both ins companies are giving you the shaft.

Yeah. I'm in the emergency waiting room at the moment
My mom is an ER nurse at New Hanover Hospital if that's where you are. If you need surgery ill send her a text to stitch a third nipple on you.
In all seriousness though, Hope you're Ok.
