    Had a prang tonight..

    Hey,
    popped out to the fish and chips, and on the way home on a roundabout some guy hit me. I was turning right, and out of the corner of my eye i saw a car coming towards me from the left and i knew he was gonna hit me, and he did..

    So pulled over, jumped out and had a look - couldn't really see much damage, then he continued to reverse back into someone! Think he was a little but nervous and shaken up.

    So I have now had my first accident! lol. It was raining quite hard so it was obvious he just hit his brakes and didn't stop - got his details etc.

    As he hit near my n/s rear arch he left some marks on the corner of the bumper and a little dent in my arch, I won't see properly until the morning though as it is dark - i'm not that bothered, obviously i would rather it hadn't of happened but i'm ok and its my first car, its meant to have a couple of dents haha

    But the point of this post is, i'm just wondering if any more serious damage could have come of this, he didn't hit me really hard but i definitely felt it - So do you think there is a possibility of structural damage, and if so what?

    Thanks,

    Foz.

    This is what a insurance assesor is for mate although probably very small chance off being anything else up with it.

    Pretty glad mines off road with all these bumps recently

    Yeah but it does only look minor, and as i'm 18 i don't really wanna do anything with insurance, i think i'll end up leaving it if its nothing structural lol.

    Its clearly his fault, so what are you on about get it fixed off his insurance. Give way to vehicles from the right on a roundabout, is it not

    And when your renewal rocks round and they ask....

    have you had any accidents in the last 3 years?????? Prepare for your premium to rocket, even though you were not at fault.

    If he offers a cash settlement, take it and say no more
