Colission... Dammit...

Thought I'd share my misery... My wife got cut off today, left turn in front of her.

Seems all cosmetic so far, all the lights still work and what not, no airbag deployments, but that light is scuffed up pretty bad, and the dented body panels and broken trim... Yeah, I am looking forward to the bill...

Honestly, what I'm dreading the most is the possibility of other crap now starting to go wrong as a side effect. Lots of electronics, wires, sensors, etc that got jostled around. Also, the heads-up collision detector thing didn't sound during this incident.

I would bet the damages will end up close to $3000 easy. With the parts alone just a bumper can cost close to $1000 and the rest plus a repaint on the fender, hood etc. A claim for the insurance for sure. I hope it was not a hit and run. Good luck

Nope, no hit-n-run. Other driver was cited. Teen driver that is now learning a valuable life lesson.

This irritates me to no end, the body shop will bend and hammer things back into place, sand and fill and paint and ... nothing will be the same as it was before. I'm going to try and insist that all affected parts be replaced with new components, but I don't know if you can get hoods, bumpers, fenders, etc from the factory already painted the exact same as the vehicle. Honestly never been in this situation before so I'm afraid I'm going to get screwed over.

Well, if you're having your insurance cover it, you just have to tell the adjuster and the shop that you want OEM only, as least in NYS that is your right. They'll try for aftermarket or the used, seconds parts. In either way, unless you're paying for it, the shop is going to be replacing that bumper, fender, quarter panel maybe, the hood perhaps and will either paint it all themselves with a blending or send it to another shop to paint it for them.

The shop will take it apart and check for any other damages and repairs needed, come up with the costs and paint needed, plus the time to repair. Again, if you have collision, your insurance will pay this, minus your deductible, but the shops usually work with you on the deductible from you.

As for the HUD pop-up, the person that cut you off, without knowing the full extent of what happened, was probably just out of view of the camera and was too sudden. A lot of stories you hear online that AEB systems that use cameras, the blind spots are the corners of the vehicle, not enough time to register a vehicle or object and stop the car.

I'm going to have the other party's insurance cover it, I don't want to put a claim on mine.

If you claim on your insurance your next renewal will probably skyrocket.

If other driver was cited, other drivers insurance SHOULD pay for it. No reason your insurance should pay - unless other driver was un-insured.
