    Angry ******* Hell

    I was having a drive today, the road wasn't a nice one it was 2 lane back lane. There was a van 2 cars in front I think that stopped hard so everyone had to stop hard, I had to anchor on and my car stopped on a dime, this **** behind me in an Audi A4 1.8T SPORT P Reg, skidded into me at about 20-30mph, Iím sure the road was only 30 for a start.

    Obviously when I got out I could have killed him but I had to think about the insurance and he wasn't exactly tiny. But after I clamed down I noticed there wasn't much damage(If Any) on the exterior till I lifted up the book cover and saw cracks and crumples then I shut it before I passed out with rage. Got his details etc, went home and my dad broke the bad news, itís going to be a write off I think. Where itís crumpled around / under the spare tyre itís pushed into the patrol tank and knocked a hole in my exhaust (2 days before MOT).

    I only had an accident a couple days before xmas as you might of read from other thread and only had the car nearly 2 months. I hope I get book value (around 2300) for it and get to keep it for around £300 because itís perfectly driveable.

    I suppose itís lucky I didnít do any mods yet and Iím going to milk this whiplash, anyone had experience with claiming for whiplash and such?

    Iíll upload some inside damage pics tomorrow and he phoned me with his insurance no and ref #.

    I flew into the side of a car once - silly sod pulled out in front of me - I was on a motorbike.

    My insurance company automatically claimed for my bruised ego and broken wrist. I got £3k for the broken wrist and had to see an independent doctor to assess the injuries.

    There is actually a book containing injuries and their related compensation amounts. But its not widely available and I had to ask a solicitor at work for a look.

    All to common a problem people tail gateing. I travel daily on the M56 and without fail everyday see loads to pratts travelling at 70 mph about 3 inches behind the car in front.

    I gave up biking after this incident - its just too dangerous given the number of plebs in cars that drive around.
    It is only when the last tree is felled, the last animal killed and the last fish hauled from the sea that we will realise we can't eat money.

    It's idiots like you who make false injury claims that push up the price of insurance. if you are injured then claim for your injuries, but don't think you can make a killing, some one has to pay in the end.

    Also remember that oneday you could hit some one and be in the other position.....would you like to deal with someone with your attitude?

    Getting angry over someone's mistake is not going to help.

    Sorry mate, it's a car and no one was badly hurt, that's what's important!
    Tell me what you've done, not what you're going to!

    I was on the receiving end before xmas, his insurance will pay out, I spent a 16 hour trip to get that car and I got a good deal also so ill never get back what it means to me.

    I have to agree with K3FUS with this.

    Claim for anything you're due, but don't take the piss. It's not fair on other people who might actually REQUIRE it, but don't get it.

    You're alive, no mega injuries and you live to **** another day. Some people don't come off so lightly and get very little, if anything at all.
