sorry to see/hear that, but at least you are ok.

The title " My car was creamed by a female driver not paying attention "



Glad you are OK too, and that they can fix it up for ya, but I agree here...does it matter that the other driver was female? ---- I am female, and the person that hit me was a male on a cellphone, not paying attention whos "foot slipped" off the brake.
Not every driver pays attention, female or male -- just be sure that you are looking out for them!

I'm sure if he would have been hit by a guy, the title of this thread would have read, "My car was creamed by a male driver not paying attention"....LOL!!

"female driver not paying attention" and everyone thinks "say no more, man, my wife is an accident waiting to happen..."

"speeding teenager" and everyone thinks, "ah, i know exactly what your talking about, my kid drives way too fast." or "man, sounds like me when i was younger"...

"old lady backed into my car" and everyone thinks, "yeah, my elderly mom needs to stop driving..."

"male driver not paying attention" everyone thinks... "huh? wah? that's weird..."

I'm not sure if the OP has settled the claim completely or not, but if not he can file for a Diminished Value claim as well. That would help recoup any costs that would be lost.

Fight the insurance company with every fiber of your being and refuse to settle on their first offers if you feel it's unfair. My 16-year old was recently hit by someone who crossed the center line. His '00 V6 coupe was totalled. Their first offer was a serious lowball offer. In the end, we got nearly double their first offer and the totalled car back outright as well.

We questioned the methods they used to determine the totalled value, and cost of what they determined were "comparable" replacements in the area. Not only were the comparable replacements not on local lots, many of them had never even been on those lots. The firm the insurance company used to determine these values had also been sued in many states for their shady tactics.

While much of that is outside the scope of what happened here, it's an example of the fact that the insurance company is more interested in paying out the least amount of money possible. So don't be afraid to hold their feet to the fire.

And while we're at it, please stop calling bad drivers "retarded". I know like 30 retarded people who are much better drivers than I am.

Ya it couldve been worse...thank goodness it wasnt!!!
As far as the "female driver line" because it was a female. If a male hit me it wouldve said "My car got creamed by an a$$hole" lol I didnt think I should put "bit@h but I see your point.
