Angry I got hit before the sens game last night

I was stopped in traffic on palladium Dr waiting to park... WHAM from the rear then SMACK in the front. Some idiot in an chev impala was in too much of a hurry to notice that the traffic had stopped and rammed me into the back of a SUV. It had a rear mounted spare on the gate. He was at fault as the report had my speed at 0 and his at 20. I had it towed and caught the 2nd period. Driving a POS rented mazda protege. Minor damage on other two but I took it hard. Leaking rad fluid and body damage. Bags didn't pop and my neck is sore as hell.

new bumpers; front and rear, hood crumpled, headlights loose, front grill broken, new rad at least. Otto's is going to do the work I spoke with the manager, Brian, great guy, he's taking care of everything for me.

I'm thinking of getting a couple of body mods while it's apart. Probably get the Prodrive UK300 Headlight's from Lachute. I'd like to get the STI Grill and Hood Scoop as well but can't find a Canadian vendor.

Where could I get the STI Grill and Hood Scoop in Canada, real fast? Also, can you buy the WRC style hood with the vents inbetween the front and the scoop?


I saw a couple WRX's go by. Sorry for holding up traffic but I wanted to get the police reports etc...

Damn people. Can't even own a new car and not have someone wreck it. Can I sue? I'm really pissed.

Paul

That totally sucks. I just got my car back last week from the body shop after being hit by an SUV.... only good thing is that the rock chip I had in a quarter panel is gone since they replaced it.

I heard that there was a group buy on the STi scoops (I think) in the Toronto Subaru Club.

PDM Racing (in BC) has replica STi grills.

It doesn't look like their going to replace the hood scoop. Oh well it wasn't even really broken. I'll have to wait and save up for one.

I put the lights on hold at Lachute and TStoWRX is trying to locate a grill for me in TO.

The replica STi grills from PDM are pretty cool but I was thinking about this one.





What do ya think?

Nope. I ride on stock for winter and BBS in the summer. I think I've seen the car you're talking about. I get gas at the Sunoco there all the time and commute past it twice a day.

I'm going to warn you right now.... speaking from personal experience GET YOUR NECK CHECKED OUT by a specialist right away. A few years ago I was stopped at a red light and some retard behind me desides he's going to reach down and grab the cell phone as he's stopping.

He really didn't hit me all that hard but I have neck pain to this day. Thank god I've done over a year of physio because it was even worse before I went. The insurance will foot the bill and it won't go against you since its not your fault.

I can't stress how important it is to get this looked at and to get some therapy in the beginning before the scarring of the tissue can take place.

I've always had back and neck problems so I've booked an appt on monday for X-rays, etc.. I got hit 2 years ago and got a year of free chiropractic. I'm afraid that it's going to be much worse this time around. I couldn't sit for more that 1/2 hour at work today because my back and neck were killing me.


What would the deal be If I couldn't work full days/weeks anymore?

That sounds like me for about 6 months afterwards, I couldn't even sit still long enough to read a magazine at Chapters without my neck killing me .

IF, IF , IF you are truly disabled and can't work full days then insurance is going to have to compensate you for your loss. It says someowhere in your insurance about it. That what 3rd party is for, stay on the adjusters a$$ adn don't take no for an answer. DOCUMENT EVERYTHING and this may be a good time to go chat with a couple of lawyers. Don't be afraid to complain if you're not getting what you want. Some insurance co's will stall to make you go away , some won't. The key is to be persistant so they know you mean business.

Well I had better get talking to my insurance. I could hardly get out of bed this morning. Turning and tossing all night long. I'm staying home again today.


Someone was also telling me that there was some insurance companies that pay you the loss of value to the car. Anyone know the technical term for this?

Would this include short term. Like a week or so. I'm not really interested in not working anymore. No matter what happens I'll probably just have to put up with it. Would be nice if they took care of chiropractor bills for life though.

Default Crappy....

Hey pvbyl,
Real sorry to hear about the car and more importantly your neck! That's bad news... For some good news... I was in an accident recently and had Otto's do the repair work. They do great work! and the service is very friendly. My only "complaint" about them, is that they don't seem to pay close attention to details, like putting decals back in the correct places, and being careful about overspray. (my runroof headliner is now part blue ridge pearl). But as I mentioned their service is great and Brian is a pleasure to deal with. They will fix any problems when you bring it to their attention.

Are you getting aftermarket body parts installed through the insurance claim? If so, how did you talk them into that?!? I would have loved to upgrade my front bumper to the nicer US bumper but it was a no-go for me...

Once again, sorry to hear about your misfortunes!.

BTW... Try to claim back the cost of tickets to the game too! J/K

Cheers,
Chad

The insurance isn't paying for the aftermarket suff. I wish. I'm just paying the difference in price from the OEM replacement cost.

Certainly , its like going on short term disability . You're right, in the end if you dont' heal its not like you can order a new spine though I wish I could some days. If you have enough of an injury they can indeed be paying for the rest of your natural life..... think of bad wrecks where someone is paralzed and needs 24 hour care. If you're all better by end of therapy then good , otherwise look into getting a settlement where they'll give you a lump sum to pursue your own healing .

The bottom line is you were OK before the accident and the insurance is there to either get you back to that stage or compensate you for your loss.

Default Insurance

I do not want to rain on your parade guys but because of how no fault insurance is set up in Ontario it is almost impossible to get an injury claim.

Now I know some changes have been made to no fault since it was first introduced, several years ago my wife and I were walking on a little country near Perth, this old guy about 80 years old ran right into us we had witnesse's that he did not even try to miss us.

He admitted that he did not see us go figure, it was broad daylight, I had the skin torn off my leg from calf to buttock, bleeding kidneys and a tear in my panreas, my wife had damage to her back and to this day is now badly riddled with arhritis in her back.

We went after a claim and got dick all because under Ontario no fault we were not badly enough injured, the best we got was our medical bills were covered as well as help for house cleaning, but when they deemed the that the physio was maintenance that was cut off too as well as the housecleaning.

Oh and if you have insurance through your employer the auto insurance will only pay the difference between what your employee medical coverage provides, which means as in our case the old guy that hit us his insurance only had to pay 20% of the total bill.

Pat.

Thumbs up WOO HOO, I'm back baby..

I changed my user name.. pvbyl is now Vandy

I got the car back on Wed night. Finally got rid of that mazda. I'll never buy a car like that. Don't feel safe over 110KM/h A nice smooth sprint up to 200km/h tonight made me feel right at home again It also confirmed that everything seems to be fixed and ligned up properly. I have an Issue with the way that my hood now fits and I'll link to that post later.

I'm still waiting fot the STi grill but here's a pic of the new lights and fog covers. I love the lights, just have to get the electronic in car adjustment hooked up so I can aim them properly for country driving. I also had to remove my foglights until I have time to modify the mounting bracket. I'm also trying the no plates on the front for a while. At least till I get new ones. There in rough shape.

Thanks to Brian at Ottos, He was very helpful and a pleasure to deal with. 5500+ damage. He said I really got hit hard in the rear, had to replace all the re-bar back there?



Cheers,
Paul
