Wham!

     My car got T-boned on the way to work.  A person driving a similar SUV came off a highway off0ramps, ran a red light and plowed into the driver's side of my car.  Her airbags deployed; mine didn't but the driver's-side door is dented and sprung.  It moves under its own power but it's not street-legal (can't open the door!) and it's probably totalled.

     The car that hit me was a rental.  Enterprise.  My past dealings with them have not left me with a good impression of the company.

Dang Ms. Ecks!! Hope you're okay physically. That's rough.

It's a big inconvenience and a PITA, but in the end it's wrinkled metal. The important thing is, how are you doing?

My condolences for that. I hope you came out of experience without aches and pains.

I had a very similar accident some years back, some kid took off across traffic lanes coming out of bank during rush hour and plowed into my pick-ups drivers side door. It was fun climbing over the center console between the bucket seats (oh what I would have gave for my old truck's bench seat!) every time getting in and out of truck. I swear I could hear 'Yakkety Sax' song when that occurred.

Hope your insurance adjuster is a good one.

Sorry, Bobbi :(

Hope you only got sprung up - nothing broken. Sounds like you were lucky - did the police cite the other driver? Are you in a no-fault state? Seems as if that helps - less dealings with insurance companies.

I don't seem to be physically hurt -- ask me again tomorrow.

Gee whiz! It never rains but it manure storms. Hope you're ok tomorrow.

Be prepared that your injuries may not manifest for several days AND may cause pain and even disabilty for the rest of your life.
Do not be in a hurry to sign off on a sttlement from the insurance company.

Dang! You ladies can't seem to catch a break lately (unless it's a body part or something else of value).

Glad you were able to walk away. Hope there are no residual effects. Good luck in your dealings with the clown's insurance.

Hope you're all right.
And that the wheels can be repaired or replaced affordably.
But mostly that you're all right.

Hope you're alright. Maybe it's time to call in an exorcist. :\

I'll be number 14 to wish you the best and to offer hopes that you suffered no long-term injuries. Cars are replaceable, YOU are not.

Here's hoping that the insurance wrangling comes out okay for you.

Hopefully it will not aggravate any of your existing conditions. Rental companies can be a real pain to deal with. If you had full coverage on yours engage them and let their lawyers deal with it.
