Mad Bad luck for me..

Hey..i know i dont really know anyone here but i needed to share my pain with you folk..The 99 SL2 that I just bought 9 days ago was SMASHED into a telephone pole as it sat parked in front of my house at 2 am. It is completeley totaled.. The drunk also hit 4 other cars but mine got it the worst. I am so totally speechless and so very pissed.... I guess i wont be posting here for anymore car questions.. I really did grow to love that car in the week that i had it...this sucks

Make His/Her Drunk@$$ pay you in many currencies and denominations of cash, checks, pain, daughters (can you tell I'm a dude? ), etc. Good luck (sound like it's due).

Just buy another one there is at least 3 others on this board looking to replace their smashed Saturns. Just 'cause your Saturn bit the big one, doesn't mean you have to ditch us, and the brand like a dirty shirt.

THe insurance company called it a "total loss" so, I guess they give me back the car's value.. Can I get more anyone know, for a better car?

Claim permanent psychological damage, due to constant ringing in your ears - pain in your neck - and numbness in your toes on occasion . It can work with a good lawyer and get you a new car.

well I don't see on what grounds? was he hurt/in the vehicle? Im dealing with back and neck pains every day due to being rear ended by a drunken driver. This numbskull was over 3 times the legal limit. my life has been screwed up for years (didn't graduate college, lost jobs, lost out on home loans, chronic pain, depressed). Don't get me wrong the guy should get every $ coming to him from insurance to replace his totaled saturn but a lawsuit is a rediculous suggestion if he wasn't hurt.

There was a guy on the news here recently that has had 11 DUI convictions. And still has his licence. Makes you wonder.. I am a firm beliver in ONE strike you are out - playing with peoples lives has NO excuse. PERIOD. Around here its seems like they like the 3 strike rule.. Thats 3 times too many behind the wheel drunk.

Try telling that to the alcohol lobby, which has been the major factor in why / how people are allowed to hold onto their driver's licenses after so many DUI convictions. Here in WI, they're represented by a group with a nice warm fuzzy name, the "Tavern League". And they spend a lot of money on politicians. And crashes by people with multiple DUIs is a BIG problem here.

that kind of stuff does make a person wonder....one time is definately one time too many...i dunno how they can justify letting a person still have their liscences after that many DUI...if you drink and drive and are caught...you should pay the consequences...and that right there is a slap on the wrist and a slap in the face to those who dont do that stuff..

Red Face Re: Bad luck for me..

The lady that totally smashed my car was DRUNK and hit 4 other cars after she hit mine (totaled 2 of them) and then jumped out of her Chevy astro TANK (van..lol) and ran down the street..luckily I live across from a hospital and the security ran her down..No one was in any of the cars ,it was 2 am and most were sleeping.
But now im having Insurance problems...I paid a total of $6300 for the SL2 just 10 days ago and my insurance wants to give me $4755 with a possibility of getting $500 more (my deductible) back once they get it from her insurance. How do I get more??!!?? Im out almost $1500 bucks!! Anyone have experience with this and can help me??

just saw the pics. I would get what I could out of the insurance and then what ever is left over I would sue her personally for the rest of the damages. (maybe you could work up some tears and get awarded emotional damage too.. )

Do you have any kind of receipts or paperwork from when you bought it? Because it's less than 2 weeks old, they should be reimbursing you total purchase price. Fight until you get what you paid for it!
