car accident question
« on: June 22, 2011, 12:24:25 am »
Was recently in a car accident and it now looks like my car will be totaled out.  This being my first time with something like this, I thought I'd turn to the place where I've found all manner of advice and insight on things other than baseball. Any suggestions or guidance are obviously greatly appreciated.

Hope no one was hurt. This is more of a beer and queso query.
Everyone's talking, few of them know
The rest are pretending, they put on a show
And if there's a message I guess this is it
Truth isn't easy, the easy part's shit

B&Q for sure.
Hope nobody was hurt.  I totaled my truck in January, so this stuff is pretty fresh in my mind. 
First, repeatedly bang your head against a wall to prepare yourself for the next few weeks/months.  Then take pictures of everything, if you can.  Call your insurance immediately to file a claim and arrange car rental services.  Get the other side's information and pass it along to your insurance rep.  Hopefully the police were involved and filed an incident report.

If your car is totaled out, make your insurance take care of scrapping it and they'll cut you a check.  If the other side was at fault, save all receipts and turn them in for reimbursement.  If you were injured, go to a doctor NOW, even if the wreck was your fault.

Once reimbursed for everything, buy a new car.

Don't think twice, it's alright.

Get ready for the incoming deluge of ambulance chasers ringing your phone off the hook.

Sometimes you have to chase where the ambulance is going to be, not where it is.

Zenbulance chasing?
