Default Deers are everywhere and now impact to the car

Well, I did it. I finally got a road kill by complete accident. It sounds stupid, but a deer T boned me while I was driving down to town. Out of no where BAM.

It is not my car and I am paying out of pocket to repair. The owner of this car still has my car till I fix this one, long story.

So, anyone in nortehr b-more know of a good shop? I went to a Kelley's automotive and was quoted 1200, and that is with me replacing teh headlight on my own. The shop didn't look that nice eitehr.

As a side note, I am sorry for teh deer and did call teh proper authorities. The crazy thing is tehy asked me if I wanted to "tag it and get teh meat". I'm definitely not used to MD from AZ.

Only 1200 for all that damage? Thats not bad at all.

I had a similar experience with a deer one morning. It was almost identical damage to yours except on the drivers side. My insurance took care of it but my estimate was over 3000 dollars.

Sorry for your accident though, that really sucks.

Default good bodyshop

take a look at skips autobody on route
30, about 3-4 miles north of reisterstown
on route 30. I've got an appointment there on the 15th.( an old lady made a left
turn coming head on into the side of my car) They do really good work. There's a
silver rex usually parked out front (it's the
owners brother's car) that also got hit by
a deer(alot worse than your car) and you
can't tell anything ever happened. They
did an excellent job.

I managed to hit a grand total of 5 deer with my last car!!! Luckily I moved out of the sticks, and have remained deer free since, had a few close calls in the impreza though. And I know what you mean not much you can do sometimes they just run right for your car. They are a very beautiful, but dumb animal.

Call your insurance company. You should not have to pay out of pocket, nor should that affect your rates.

Story:

A few years ago, a fox ran into the front left side of my Integra Type R & smashed the parking light & cracked the front fascia. Obviously I didn't call the police & file a report over it, but I did contact State Farm. They covered all expenses with no deductible stating that this was an act of god beyond my control.

Progressive is coming out to do an estimate. If I have to use them my deduct is around 500 or 1K I forget. I did win some $$$$ in vegas recently but I had planned to spend it on other things for the car, no repairs

Part of life. I have heard that up around my area of baltimore that unless there is some remainder of deer/animal proving it did the damage that I'd be at fault. The deer is no where to be found now, even if it was I can't see myself loading it up in the car for the agent to photo.

Thanks for the body shop recommendation in Reisterstown. I'll have to give them a call.

This reminds me of a story my father-in-law told me about a year ago. He and his hunting buddy were driving back from an early morning hunting expedition when a deer jumped out in front of their van. They hit the deer, saw it was dead, and decided to throw it in the back since they didn't land any kills for the morning. On the way home they started hearing something moving around and breathing in the back of the van. They look back to see a huge deer bucking around in the back of the van!!

My in-law's friend jumps in the back with the deer and starts wrestling with the thing and eventually takes his knife out and well, you know . . . thought it was pretty funny because my in-law kept driving the van home while this was all happening!! lol!

As for body shops, the only one I went to around that area was a dealer shop at Heritage. They did really good work, but I'm sure it was expensive (insurance work).

I bet you can get all that fixed at a paintless dent removal place. It's worth driving by there to have them check it out.

dude, lucky you were driving the GF's car! but that sux you have to pay i would second the paintless dent removal suggestion on the door. they may be able to massage that one out. there's a dentwizard's center in Rockville that does good work, if you want to make the trek.

the bumper looks fine, just needs to be reattached to the mounts.

I write estimates for a living, $1200 is probably in the ballpark.

That comes under comprehensive coverage, usually deductibles on those are $0-250. Never saw any higher. They don't count against you, since it's an "Act of God", i.e. there is no human control over deer.

As a claims adjuster I'd like to see all the Bambi's whiped out, but then I wouldn't have a job, would I?
