Perfect...there was finally a cop where and when you needed one. And him actually seeing the accident occur instead of him being busy eating his donut was even better. You can't get a better witness than a cop.
Hey now! Play nice-cops/donut jokes are pretty low...you don't want to hear my rant on this. Believe me .

ON TOPIC (for once, I'll try this being on topic thing)-Sorry about the car, its annoying when other drivers cause problems for you. Hope everything goes well-good luck dealing with insurance companies.

Its good that a cop saw the accident. Were I live they don't issue tickets unless they see the accident. They will give a ticket for no insurance but that'* about it. The guys insurance company will probably have you get a couple of estimates for competitive bid or they might have their own shop that handles their repairs. Let us know how it works out.

PJ...I'm friends with some cops and they are cool with the donut jokes. Primarily because they do eat donuts if they work nights...It'* the only thing open...

AIG Insurance Company (my Insurance co.) appraiser estimated $4300 for collision repairs to my car. That includes front & rear bumper covers, right tail light assembly, pull out right rear quarter that is rolled inward, repair severed wires (license plate illumination), paint blending & body work as necessary. I still have to get the other insurance co. appraiser, he'll more than likely try to lowball the estimate.

Hey Mark now that one cow bell needs replacing, maybe you can sweet talk the adjusters to install some new tips instead! Tell them their cheaper! Tell them anything! Tell them that you need a new set of GXP lighting on the rear since all the reflectors won't match witht the single replacement, just lie and tell them anything to get that cool stuff for your car.....better yet tell the guy in the Jag you'll sue his a$$ off if he doesn't shell out for those mods! hey worth a try anyways!!!

In my area, they will issue tickets if it is obvious. In my first accident, the lady got an unsafe lane change ticket and in the third one, the woman got something for not looking behind her while backing up. Hope your car gets back to new. If you purchased it new, then that have to replace it with NEW partsI believe. you could probably get used ones once the check is in hand to save some money after that.
