A car pulled out of a side road in to my car & i'm shaking!!

was just driving home & a car pulled out of a side road into my car & completely smasked my bumper & dented the side panel of my car!! It was about 40 mins ago & i still can't stop shaking!!
the guy said i thought you stoppped, to which i replied obviously i hadn't & the lady behind him pulled over and gave me her details too & she said he wasn't even looking right he was looking left!! phoned the insurance & they seemed to think it will be quite straight forward to deal with as i have a witness & will get a courtesy car while mine is repaired.... but i love my car :-(

Yeah you'll be fine as you have a witness
But he might lie and get a friend to be a witness, gota be careful
#3
Harsh when this happens.
You could be in shock - yes, even for a small-ish accident like that.
I suggest seeing your doctor or going to casualty.
At the very least go and talk to a friend about it face to face.

I had three such incidents last week but luckily I was able to steer away from being hit. I hope you get your car back on the road again soon.

i don't think he'd get away with that though would he? as i have a witness who i have never met before in my life that was in the car behind him :?

main thing is your ok - have a cuppa and a few fags - if you dont smoke nows a good time to start:)

hope your car isnt a write off
[mod]#13
I was in car that got hit in the same way & I ended up getting carted off to hospital. Actually sent a cold chill down my spine reading about your accident. Make sure you do get checked out at hospital as you'll have been knocked sideways quite hard & you need to get your neck & back checked out.

I really feel for you, it's a really horrible thing to happen & everything can seem like it's going in slow motion if you can see the car approaching out of the corner of your eye. Get a big cup of tea & make sure you've got someone with you as you sound like you're suffering from shock.

Really hope it gets sorted out & you are feeling better soon. Take care x:friends:

Aww it's so scary when something like that happens. Like you said at least you didn't have the kids with you too. There are some idiots on the road - just as well that you saw him! I hope you feel a bit calmer now and that you manage to get your car sorted out without too much hassle. Take care :) x

really sorry, car crashes are horrible, but at least you are ok, and that after all is the main thing. your car can be fixed and if you are lucky the garage will even give it a clean for you and you will get a cute little run around while yours in in for repair.

take care xx
#25
Sorry to hear this but glad you are ok ... Big long sit down with a strong cuppa tea/coffee for you young lady .. try and relax for the rest of the day as it is more of a shock than you will realise at the moment. :friends:
#26
Even if he lies, he still pulled out from a minor road into your path. It would still be ok, his insurance wont even argue they will just settle,. Have a relaxed afternoon, and take it easy,:)

omg how scary.... hugs hun x

Depends my mum has been waiting 6 months now on a crash where a man hit her. she got a witness on the scene. He didnt. but now says he has a witness. So its dragging on

Did you take lots of pics?

when you have an accident, depending how clear cut it is the other driver has 6 months to reply to your insurance letters. if liability is established at the scene you can go through there ins or an accident management company. if liability is not established then it would depend how bad the damage is and how much your excess would be.

alot of people await liability so they don;t have to pay the excess. but once liability is settled you can sedn your receipt in fro a cheuqe back from your insurance company.

depending how sure you are as to the fault of the accident, an accident management company will chase liability alot quicker than your own insurance and you will also get a like for like car

oh what an awful thing to experience hope your ok, just relax and well all try and cheer you up. back to the incident make all the notes you need to so you can win your case because the ass hole will probably shift the blame on you so get all your points on paper so you dont forget and draw out what happened to make it even easier so when you explain it would be so simple.

no, only took one pic of my car :-(
well the courtesy car people phoned & they are picking me up at 4.30 to take me to their office to do paperwork
& the repair centre have phoned & they are picking my car up tomorrow morning. the annoying thing is i have to pay £50 deposit for courtesy car & then will have to pay £200 excess on repairs until the claims sorted out :-( we're going to butlins in a couple of weeks & could really do without this expense at the moment :cry:
