got side swiped

last night as i'm coming home from dinner i was merging into the turning lane and the guy behind me was to impatient to wait his turn to get to the turning lane so he rode the shoulder and as i was getting in he side swiped me. Looks like i need a new front quarter panel and my rim needs to be re-powder coated. Also my passenger side door doesn't open but i think that because the quarter panel is bent into it and hits it, hoping the door isn't messed up too. Any idea on how much this will cost me? it doesn't look as bad in the pics as what it really is. i was planning on buying headers this weekend but there goes that money...

That sucks. No idea how much to fix - hope you got all his insurance info.

So few people actually know what "Merge" means, or how to properly do it. This guy was obviously only concerned with himself - ahole.

You are driving without insurance?
Who does the car belong to?
Did police investigate the collision?

Well that's not good! I'm surprised your parents are so irresponsible as they are putting themselves and others at major risk to save a few $$. It's becasue of people like you I need to pay more to carry uninsured motorist coverage!

Stupid. And by the sounds of it, the other guy was already in the turn lane. YOU side swiped him. Lucky you didn't kill someone with no insurance. Its people like you that jack up my insurance rates.

You've got a lot of nerve coming on here and telling that story. Too bad someone doesn't contact your parents insurance company.

Yeah. Sucks that that happened, but you NEED to get insurance. So dumb to not have it, also most of the companies have accident forgiveness now thats pretty cheap, your rates dont go up if you get in an accident.

I cannot believe how many drivers here will drive the shoulder or median to try to pass. It's pretty sad to have to check the mirrors when entering a turn lane.


I'm sorry that happened OP. I hope the perp pays for it.

1st; why is you dad letting you drive his car with out insurance?
2nd; such a shame this had to happen to a beautiful car like ours
3rd; how is this going to be cheaper to fix with out insurance? if i were to be in a crash like this i would only pay $200, this seem to be more than a $200 fix

People suck man. Sometimes people are willing to not go through insurance, because it jacks their rate up too. Maybe the guy would do that? That's what I did when some idiot hit my truck(it was parked). I got after him about it, saying if he didn't take responsibility that I would have to call the cops, and he gave me the money to fix it. You should definitely get insurance though. Im only 20, but I have had insurance since the day I bought my Camaro(I was 16), and I have it on my truck, too. And your car is a hell of a lot nicer than any of my vehicles. If you can afford a new Camaro, (and have the money to think about headers) how can you not afford to have insurance on it?

So how much damage was done to the other guy? I take it that the Police were not called to make a report were they? Did you atleast stop and talk to the other guy or what?

Take it to a decent body shop. They can tell you how much it will be. Good luck.

There's enough damage to pay for headers 3 times over. So, break out the checkbook on this one.

Thanks for not being insured to drive that car BTW. We all really appreciate footing the bill for people that do things like that.

The car is insured too all you assholes calling me and my parents irresponsible. I'm just not put down as the driver of the car my dad is that's why if we go through insurance my payments are gonna go through the roof for the next couple years so if I just pay for the damage myself it will be cheaper in the long run. So once again my car IS INSURED. So stop bitching that people like me cause all you people to pay more on insurance

You’re not on the insurance because the rates will go up (your words), that's fraud my friend. So yes, your parents are irresponsible for not putting you on and your insurance company can deny any claims against it. So I wonder who the real assholes are!
