Plus, go to the doctor! My aunt was hit in a minor rear end job years ago and had neck pain the rest of her life.

Look man, I don't know if you are serious or not and I'd appreciate a serious answer. Were you driving with no license plate? And are your tail light tints illegal, too?

I was rear ended and it took a full day and a half before my neck really started to hurt. I felt 100% fine immediately after the accident, but left work early the next day due to the pain. Whiplash sucks ass. 3 years later and I'm still feeling it every now and then.

Get compensated for any medical expenses like physiotherapy if required.

My taillights are not tinted.
Yes I was driving without a license plate, because the day before that I had a photoshoot of my car and I was too lazy to put it back on. This is not an excuse, but whatever.

I don't feel any pain right now, but will definitely go check at doctor's tomorrow.
I don't have health insurance and will have to pay out of the pocket. How much should I expect to pay?

i would think your car insurance should cover it.

#1. fill out an accident report
2. contact your insurance and give them the other persons info
3. get checked out

good luck

oh, and put your plate back on

Many PD's in Ca will not respond to non-injury collisions. You are on your own to exchange information.
You are required to fill out this report and send it to DMV.

Google "Diminished Value". There are all sorts of articles to read up on. It is basically an separate claim from the repairs. It covers the reduced resale value your car now has thanks to the age of CarFax and the like. Some states allow Diminished Value claims and some don't.

Still required for a report # especially when it comes down to whose fault it is. A police report covers your ass, plain and simple.

I'm actually moving to Cali soon too, lol. Thanks for the info on that! That to me just seems like an issue considering the other person can say it wasn't there fault, etc. I'll be requesting one regardless. Hopefully I don't cause any accidents or in one while I'm living there.

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. :(

Okay on the tint - I guess you were referring to window tint in your earlier reply.

You certainly were unfortunate to have that guy behind you but the fact is, you shouldn't have even been on the road without a license plate. And although that had no impact (pun intended) on the accident, you put yourself in the wrong place at the wrong time by driving illegally.

Hope it all turns out alright though.

In Los Angeles county generally the police will not respond unless there are injuries, property damage or substance abuse is involved. It's been this way now for over 10 years.

It seems your quote makes the drviing without a plate the reason he was rear ended. I guess if he would have stopped to put the plate on before leaving, he would have arrived at the yield sign a bit later, thus the BMW would have been there first and it could have been him hitting the BMW, so I say, not having the plate, saved him from rear ending a BMW.

most likely because when you rear end someone it's so clear cut who's at fault that one isn't needed. I'm guessing he just gave you a way to contact him should any problems arise.

Fault is determined when you file a claim with your insurance company. Your statement of what happened, where it happened and where your damage is assists in determining fault.
Regardless of who is at fault, your collision coverage covers immediate repairs of your car. Your deductible is often waived if it is immediately apparent who is at fault.
Non-injury collisions are considered insurance issues and not police matters. That's why police departments in Ca do not respond to them.
In the case of the OP, fault is easily determined, he was rear-ended.
Fault is dang near impossible to determine when both drivers claim to have a green light at an intersection.
Be careful when driving in Los Angeles. Many drivers don't have insurance or a drivers licesne. Always have uninsured motorist coverage.
I think we are moving towards a day when all of us will be required to have a GoPro sitting on the dash when we drive.

People here have no clue what a Yield Sign means either. But here they all think it means to stop and look first, before proceeding. I try to tell them that is what a Stop Sign or Rail Road Crossing Sign is for, but they don't believe me.

Yeah, at the very least you have whiplash, you may have a bulging disc now. So go to the doctor, get an Xray, it won't show whiplash, nothing shows whiplash, soft tissue damage. Then get an MRI to look at your discs in your next.

Then, hire an attorney. If you can handle the depreciation on your own, great, but I think an attorney can get you paid a little injury money. Happened to me, not in the Camaro, years ago, guy in a Uhaul didn't stop for a red light I was stopped at, he plowed into me at 45mph, my truck was fix, medical bills paid, and I got about $10,600 when it was said and done.
