    Angry Accident

    After getting the Zaf back from it's DPF replacement (which took over 3-4 weeks), some idiot drove into the back of me last night on the A13 heading towards Benfleet..

    While there's not much damage, I suspect it will be spending a few days away in the bodyshop for paint and possibly a new bumper (hope they don't repair the old one).

    Anyone got an idea on cost for the repair? I have reported the accident and still awaiting a call back from the insurers

    lol of course my daulter was 2yr so all through the docs records so cudnt really fake it, i wasnt to bad but had it and hubby had months of physio so nope wasnt a fake claim (best thing meant we got some money out of it from the suffering we indured, and not meaning its a good thing having an accident) if u get my drift

    Well I just got off the phone from the insurance company. Despite spending 30 mins on the phone last night to them it seems the call centre operative didn't finailise the details and therefore it wasn't registered.

    When through it all again with them and hopefully the bodyshop will be intouch today/tomorrow for an assessment.

    Re Whiplash - have to say that I didn't notice anything last night, but today my neck is sore - if that's still the case tomorrow, I'll go to the docs.

    thats the same that happend with us, the night it happend was ok but next day in pain but the doc said to us it can take up to 3 days! its worth going to check your ok, n if your still suffering down the line its recorded that was my point before just worded it wrong

    I hope you never hit anyone at 10mph and they claim. Drives costs up for everyone.
