Hey everyone,
Today on my way back home from an errand, as i was in an intersection waiting to make a left, the light turned red and this idiot in a nissan frontier pickup flew through the light and hit me...after waiting for 3 hours, i get the citation, eventhough he ran the light and was speeding..my legend has an estimated $3,000 in damage, and his car has $1,500...what do i do now? is there anyway to take what my car is worth and start over? It's nothing too bad, the radiator blew,and the front quarter panels,hood, headlights,and bumper cover need replacing, that's all that i see...you're suggestions are greatly appreciated.

I feel i was right too, but since i was makin the turn on a red light, i was supposed to yield to him supposedly...man what a creep that guy was, he called his whole fam down there, people in their cars would see my car and sympathize about such a nice car, and his wife would yell at me sayin she saw i was tryin to get witnesses that weren't there, man i wanted to grab a piece of my car and hit the guy with it...my car got towed :( to a place called Ultimate Body Shop, i haven't signed papers yet as to waht to do, all i have is an insurance claim number...i just wish i could let go of that car, and start fresh, i'm not the guy to go through repairs and all teh wait, i really need a car to get to school and such...how much will my insurance go up? this really sucks...

i have full coverage, but the damage to my car(est. $3,000) and the other (1,500) put together, plus the ticket i got, god knows how high my insurance will get, add to that that i'm an 18 year old male...i want to claim my car as totaled and just start over, but i doubt that will happen as only the front end is messed up...(the front quarter panels, hood,headlights, and bumper are gone, the engine leaks oil, and the radiator threw up everything at the scene of the accident)...how badly damaged does my car sound? Any suggestions? thanks again for your concern.

Also, if i get a ticket, with the accident, will the insurance see this as two incidents or one? I'm praying it'll be one cuz if not, i'll probably be paying my legends value every year as a premium...
