This has happened to us, too. More than once. In CA, being rear-ended is the only accident for which the car hit in the rear has to be held entirely blame-free. So the insurance rates cannot go up due to the individual accident. We just file with our own insurance company (21st Cent), pay our deductible down at the body shop, the insurance takes the idiots to court and recovers their costs, then sends us back our deductible.Originally posted by barfle:
Benito, I had a guy try to park his pickup in my trunk once while I was waiting at a red light for the traffic to clear so I could make a right turn, too. Of course, it turned out that he didn't have any insurance, either, so I had to take his RE to small claims court.
Yep. First time back in the saddle is always a little shakey nerves-wise. Glad to hear it went well. Did you drive by the kid's house and shake you fist at him?Originally posted by operatenor:
I went for my first post-accident m/c ride this evening. About an 8-mile round trip. A little sweaty-palmed pulling out of the driveway, but after that things kind of fell into place
