I was in a car accident today. My car is oddly enough ok for the most part. Just a dent above the rear tire and that hubcap is carved into, and a tire that is flat (nothing like driving on a spare for days!).

I hurt like hell though.

eta Come to find out the guy didn’t even file a claim so I had to spend two hours on the phone with his insurance, my insurance, just trying to get this situated!! Not to mention the hellish back pain. I can’t sleep really because of it. I am really not happy driving on my spare especially since I get conflicting answers on how long I can drive on the thing. Supposedly an adjuster will come out to look at my car Wednesday or Thursday… possibly… as I was told. Yeah. Fantastic.

Yikes! Glad you’re ok. Go soak in a nice hot tub and get some rest.

Glad you’re okay, I’ve been in a few car accidents and they are insanely scary; to the point where I am 21 years old and can’t get a driver’s license because I freak out behind the wheel.

I’m so sorry, Sarah. I’m glad you’re ok though.

You should go to see a doctor if you haven’t already. Just to be on the safe side.

Rest up. Ok?

Oh, that must be awful. At least your car wasn’t totaled.

Feel better!

I’m sorry about the accident, I’m glad that (for the most part) you are okay.  I hope everything gets worked out with your car soon!

Aw, that sucks! I’m glad you’re okay except for the pain (which means you’re not really okay, but you get it). Hope everything gets situated with the insurance. I know how much of a pain it can be.

Eek. Good luck, Sarah. Be sure to have a mechanic check out your car too, because there could be other damages that aren’t easily visible.

And dealing with insurance/warranty people is a pain in the ass. My only advice is to write down their name, numbers, and what they said each time you talked to them (and the time). Documentation is the best way to make sure you don’t get screwed over.

And get your back checked out too. ;)
