I'm a moron magnet!!!

OK..cut to the chase..I got hit freakin' again!!! Moron woman decided to turn from the center no turn lane into my right rear wheel and quarter panel/door…ARRRGGGHHHH!!! Couldn't drive Heinrich home cause the suspension was bent and the car was crabbing sideways-CRIMINY!!! I'm an idiot magnet!! You may (or may not) recall I was rear needed about 6 months ago, and now this WTF??? At least her insurance has accepted liability…car won't be "looked at" till Monday so hurry up and wait I guess…at wits end….

Hard to believe... what the h*ll was she looking at?!

Can you claim lost value as well - two accidents is going to make for an ugly report when you go to trade...

Glad you're okay and shame about the car. Then again, half of it has been replaced soon, so by this time next year at this rate you've got a new car, essentially. Henry II, if you will.

Hi there

Please accept my sincere sympathy - something similar happened to me recently as well. My car is currently being repaired, but it's a case of hanging on in there!

Kind regards
