    today my girlfriend calls me up and says "come down to my work the company next door droped a garbage dumpster on my car". I go down there and sure enough they droped one of those big metal dumpsters right on the side of her car. it took out the door, quarter pannel, and hatchback, rear bumper and both taillights. ended up the guy was going to fast driving a hyster and had to stop fast and the dumpster slid off of the forks onto my girlfriends car /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif. any way to make the situation worse take it to the body shop to get an estimate and they said they might end up totaling the car out /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif. the bad thing about that is that the car (97 Acura Integra) is almost paid off so my girlfriend probly wont get much out of it if they total the car /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif


    UPDATE: Well the insurance covered the damage so everything is good there. by the way the new rental car (03 malibu LS) does awsome reverse cookies, but I already spent 3 bucks on it at the car wash washing the mud off of the windshield and front fenders /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    Somebody needs to be sued for sure. Like you said, insurance probably won't give her much

    If they total the car out you should get enough to buy another car just like it in theory. Never accept the first offer though. Go to a dealership and find a car like it and work out a price, then get it in writting. Then demand the insurance co match the price you found on another '97 integra /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif (similar mileage, accessories ect). If the car is almost paid off she should be able to take the money left over from paying off the current one and use it as a down payment on the new one you find and have a similar balance left to pay it off.

    yea i wouldn't worry either, if you can't get what you want out of the insurance company sue the garbage company, if that don't work go after the driver.. it was a parked car with no driver in it, and i'm sure the driver can't deny that he did it.. any lawyer would take your case, then on top of the reimbursement for atty fees, extra PMS you have to deal with, hassle, the time your girl had to take off work, bus passes /forums/images/graemlins/deal.gif or whatever you might be able to get a new integra ... /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif or tell her to get a /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif and she won't have to worry about dumptrucks
