Driver 1 (not reg. owner) didn't maintain control of his vehicle, hydroplaned into a semi-truck that bounced him across all lanes finally coming to a stop directly in front of my car.
He admitted fault. His ins. told me that I have an expensive car, my damages exceed their limit of $10,000 (my total loss + the semi) and to submit a claim to my own ins., but for what? I have liability but not comprehensive or collision.
I have no car & since they told me that they could only MAYBE pay for some of a rental car, I didn't rent a car.
I have cancer. It's hard to get to my doctor appointments, always asking/planning for rides every day is tiring.
I was injured but can't afford any Dr. bills/creditors. Cost lots already with no end in sight.
I'm not at fault. I need my car. What can I do?Than you all for your quick replies! I didn't seek medical attention for my injuries, (leg still hurts) so no bodily injury claim? My passenger was transported via ambulance and he already has bills over $10,000. No thanks. I'm not about to start a bodily injury claim I'd rather have my car* back or one just like it. I'm afraid that a lawyer will get most of anything I sue for, which would be fine as long as I could replace my car. But, I highly doubt that scenario without a personal injury claim...all I want is enough money to simply buy another car just like the one I had. Well, that, the $600 towing fee, and to get back the money it's been costing me for rides everywhere. If I had to get a lawyer for this nightmare, would I even end up with enough money to replace my car? What does something like this cost anyhoo? Thank you all again for your kind replies. It is appreciated more so than you may realize! *2006 Pontiac GTO w/6-speed manual transmission
