    Last week my brother was in a motorcycle accident. It shook me up as it looked bad at first but he is a tough guy and appears he will make a full recovery.

    Friday night a 22 year old kid slams his bike into the back of my car. I was turning and he nailed me. Tore a chunk out of the bumper, ripped off the spoiler and dented the hood. He never even lost control of his bike. He was complaining of a hurt leg but refused medical treatment.
    It shook me up too. I have a kid 22 years old.


    I'm guessing I have $3000 dollars in damage. I'll take pics then we can take guesses, closest amount gets 1000 dubs.

    How can that be? I imagine your car is only worth $1500.00, tops

    No Mlaw, it is worth more. Pretty good playground quality insult though.

    So you took a left hand turn into traffic? Hope you have an umbrella policy, guy's going to sue.

    I don't see anything about a left hand turn. I read it as the kid slammed into the back of him.

    "I was turning and he nailed me" Indicates to me, he was making a left hand turn, and the bike hit the rear end of his car. It's just pretty typical language for an auto accident. I certainly could be wrong.

    Psychotic whack job.

    Correct. I was driving on a two lane traffic road. Upon making a left hand turn onto another road, could only turn left, the kid was behind me and slammed into my rear. Just to punctuate I just got off the phone with Jill from Allstate and they are authorizing repairs and setting up a time for the adjuster to come to my house.

    Pics immediately following.

    I love this car. :sad: Third time it has been rear ended. First time was in the drive thru at Starbucks, the second time by a lady with no insurance at a red light and now this.

    I wouldn't recommend you for any legal advice.

    He sure was! I took your post as meaning, "he turned left in front of someone, cutting them off and causing the accident" I was simply saying he was rearended, regardless of which direction he was turning. I apologize.

    Still, not his fault.

    rear ended 3 times in 2 years in the same car? it's a sign, you just aren't meant to own a Camaro tom.

    as for damages, i'll say $2,650.

    Don't apologize, she put the cheering smiley to cheer that I was in the wrong. As if everybody who makes a left hand turn is at fault.

    You were 100% correct. I'm in the right. His insurance is authorizing repairs. She's wrong about her left turn analogy and she's wrong about my car only worth 1500 :cheer:
