Went into a store this past Friday evening to exchange a gift. When I came out of the store I saw a green piece of paper on my front windshield. I thought it was a flyer of some sorts and went out and opened it up. It was the name, phone number and insurance carrier of someone who backed into me. I ran out to the rear of my RAV 4 and saw the damage. Backed right into the passenger side rear quarter of my RAV 4.

Saturday, I had a estimate to get it fixed and it was over $800.00!
Of course, the woman's insurance company is going to pay for the damages. As mad as I was, I was thankful enough that someone had the courtesy to take blame and leave the note. :lol:

Damn your lucky that the other driver have the courtesy!!
I remembered my uncle's Camry got reversed on and the other driver just drove off. But there was a witness that took the number plate of the other car and waited until my uncle returned to the car.

Got the car back this past Wednesday completely repaired. Car looks like it did before! I highly recommend Schmidt's Auto Repair in Amherst, NY.

My Rav 4 was back into by a girl talking on a cell phone. She was sticking out in an intersection and thought she was going to be hit by a car. She didn't look in her rearview mirror. Smashed my bumper, broke my air conditioning condensor, and pushed the condensor into my radiator. Total cost to fix was $2,300.00. Luckly she admitted fault and her insurance paid for it.



Now my Rav 4 is fixed!

My insurance broker told me that all she had to do is say it was my fault and I would have had to pay for everyting. I had no witnesses, and it was my word against hers. She would have won because the accident looked like I could have hit her from behind.

My broker told that if you ever get in an accident, the first thing you do is try to find a witness. I remember when she hit me, there was a guy walking his dog, standing at the corner and he seen what had happened. I went out to see what had happened and I did not even think about getting his name and phone number. Lucky the girl was an honest person.

The car she was driving was a 1999 Nissan Sentra. The only damage on her car was a large scratch on her bumper.
