Re: 156 may be written off
If you are the innocent injured third party, then you are entitled in law to reinstatment to the position you were in before the accident. If the car is written off you can press for a settlement that will buy you a similar vehicle in similar condition..regardless of glass's guide values. Don't compromise over this, negotiate and tell them what it will take to make you satisified, and that you will take them to small claims if they underpay.
On your part you have to be reasonable, but be firm. You are the injured party and don't let them forget that.
Also don't forget that injury to yourself may not show immediately, so if you start getting stiff necks, headaches etc a few weeks from now that you havn't had up to now you need to see your GP pronto. I'm not telling you to cheat and submit a fraudulent claim..quite the opposite as I hate people who do that, but just telling you to be aware.
