Lorry reversed into my car last week (10 yr old very reliable toyota). He drove off and I had to follow him for 2 miles before I confronted him (he had no idea it had happened!). Dent to passenger rear above lights. Got a rough estimate approx £400 to fix. His firm said would have to go through insurance. My insurance company said need estimate from thier own garage.
Just been, stunned to find car might be a write off, as the cost of repairs coming near to the value of the car. Car does have a few scratches and other minor defects which are nothing to do with the accident, I am not looking for these to be repaired on this.
At the end of the day, cannot believe I might have to consider replacing my car and may welll be out of pocket, they have admitted responsibility for the accident. Have to wait to hear from insurance company now.
Any advice would be appreciated.
