How much damage will total my car

Got into a pretty serious accident involving a school bus just wondering if my car will be a total loss or not.

I am by far not an expert, but I would guess totaled, especially with the air bag deploy.

Id say with the airbag deployed and the damage to the pillar, it is totaled. Doesn't mean it is but it appears like that to me. Did you steal the bus drivers lunch box? Looks like they tried driving over you.

She didn't drive over me, but she did get a ticket so at least I'm not liable.

The crushed A pillar makes me think it's totaled.

Think it is what the expected damage is in regards to what it is worth, so if the damage is over half the value, it is said, totalled.

Can I have the wheels?

Nowadays, they have an entire industry which parts out the car, not too many insurance agencies these days will sell you the car back.

Turn that V6 into a ZL1.

I would hope no one would try to fix that, it has structural damage.

Hope everyone has a speedy recovery.

Same happend to me on a different car. An 18 wheeler ran over the front end of the car bending the pillars like yours. My INS totaled the car and pay it off, actually they gave me about 3K over and I use that for a down payment on my 2LT/RS.

Good to know you are ok. Hope to see you soon driving another beauty!!!

Back once upon a time when I worked for about 8 years as a claims adjuster - we used this formula to determine "total loss" - Replacement cost (actual cash value of a like- kind vehicle) minus salvage value. If repairs exceeded that number it was automatically a total. If the repair cost were close to that and there was potential to find a lot of hidden damage once the repair shop opened her up then I would push for it to be a total with the hopes I could squeeze a little more for the salvage value.

I can't say for certain what adjusters do today but my guess is that it isn't done much different. That would make a nice salvage car either to part out or rebuild.
