Hit Up The Rear!
I took a shunt last night in my Brera. I was at the top of a slip road behind a Clio waiting to turn right at the roundabout, huge screeeeeecch of tyres then BANG! An S-reg Polo had smashed into the back of me and I'd shunted forward into the Clio.
The Polo was a write-off straightaway, the front passenger-side smashed in, and the car had actually bounced up onto the grass verge! Damage the the rear of mine was all on the drivers side, a split bumper, dented rear wing, punctured tyre, damaged alloy. Damage to the front looked minimal but the badge was push inwards and on closer inspection the bonnet was bent upwards and a gap is clear between the bonnet and the wing. The Clio's bumper was badly dented and he can no longer open his boot!
Where do I stand with insurance in terms of me shunting the Clio? As the accident was not my fault will Clio driver claim of Polo man's insurance?? He took both my details and Polo mans.
Also, I'm off to the doctors to get checked out for whiplash as I'm feeling a dull ache in my neck and back. It doesn't feel bad enough to go to the hospital for though. Should I report it to the police if I am going to put in a whiplash claim?
Just waiting for Enterprise to sort me out a courtesy car now. My car was taken away on a truck last night for inspections and hopefully repair. It was drivable but you never know what damage might have been done underneath. Hope its not a write-off!
I can't believe how hard the guy hit me considering its a slip road from a dual carriageway and you're supposed to give way at the top!!
