Got rear-ended. Fml.

So I decided to drive to Barnes and Noble and get a book to read.
I was turning right on the intersection and there was a YIELD sign.
A car was going pretty fast so I stopped to let it pass first and then BAM. Got rear-ended by a 2004 bmw z4.
The bmw driver was pissed at me because I stopped at Yield sign.
So damage is not that bad, but trunk won't close anymore and I am pretty much sure there is some parts damaged inside. :(

Dang that sucks! Hopefully its just the bumper cover keeping the trunk from closing as it doesn't look bent.

Damn Bastid. Hope he got charged for following too closely. Guess s/he should have paid more attention to the car in front of them. Sorry to hear about the pain and suffering you're going through. Hope no whiplash or anything.

I don't know. About two hours after the accident I felt a pretty bad pain in my neck. I slept over it and now it's gone.
Don't know if I should go to the doctor.

At least it was his fault! Yield means wait for the other traffic, sometimes that means stopping to wait other drivers....

Sucks it happened though! Good luck!

I'm sure sorry that happened. My last one was hit by a semi not too long ago. Got it fixed and traded it in. He was probably texting or something. I hope you get it fixed really quick.

Hopefully everything is ok. Keep in mind about the inconvenience fee and deappreciation fee you are eligible for now. There insurance won't mention it, you have to in order to get compensated.

A lawyer isn't needed. Hopefully you called the police to get a incident report and already called there insurance. Once an agent contacts you mention the unconvienence fee first. They will pay between $200-500 for each passenger assuming you had any. The deappreciation value claim is after they fix your damages. Your car now will deappreciate because its been in an accident.

2 facts here.

Fact 1. If he was a good driver he would of noticed the car going a little to fast. Therefore see you brake for that driver. He (BMW driver) is a moron.

Fact 2. That color on the BMW is hideous.

OP hope it works out

I know, but it happened for a reason. I still got some books in the end
Moreover, I always make excuses just to drive.

some places wont do an accident report if the damages are not excessive, but i think you can still go in and file your own accident report. best check it out.

did they give the other driver a citation?

Hmm. Not sure why they didn't make one, I always ask. Makes the claim smooth and makes sure the right person is at fault.

Hope everything works out though.

at 911 they asked 3 questions
1) is there any damage to public property - no
2) is anyone of you are under influence - i guess no
3) is anyone of you injured - well not really
"then just exchange insurance information"
