Ugh! Seriously!

Postby ~~Darci~~ » Sun Nov 15, 2015 1:01 am

I can't believe it! I was driving in a parking lot looking for a space today and got backed into. The worst part? She gets out and screams at me that I need to watch where I'm going!!!

She hit my front corner panel from over the front wheel to the front. My son noticed that the bumper under the headlight is cracked. Of course it's all one piece.

I'm worried and upset and frustrated!

Very simple I believe a police report will show cause on her part. It is the responsibility of the driver backing up to scan for incoming traffic. I probably would have handled the situation poorly with some expletives and pointing out her own poor driving. I am sure you handled graciously and hopefully she realizes her error. Feel better!

In my state the police do not come to parking lot accidents or take a report. I did take pictures.

I doubt it would come to this, but if the parking lot has cameras maybe you can get video to show who is at fault.

Oh wow that is very frustrating! I am so sorry! Sounds like we've both had a lousy time of it with vehicles!

I've calmed down. I've talked to my insurance company and feel better. It's just stressful!

How are things going Darci? I hope your getting this straightened out without too much more drama from the lady?
Never fun to deal with this stuff before the holidays!

Good news yesterday. Her insurance isn't even fighting they are just paying to get it fixed and getting me a rental car for the 4 days it's supposed to be in the shop. It still a hassle to have to deal with it at all but at least it's not costing me money.

That's great, I am glad to hear it! I am so glad they aren't fighting it and drawing this out. 4 days shouldn't be too bad at all.
