I got into a car accident today. First off, let me start by saying that no one was hurt and in the scheme of things, it was somewhat minor - f_cking annoying, but minor.
I had just pulled into a parking spot and staightened out my truck so there was over a foot on each side between the truck and the lines. So after I turned off the truck, took out the keys, and hung my placard, and checked that all was clear I opened my door. Just as I am turning to get out...with one foot in and one foot out, there was this huge crunching sound. This geezer ploughed into the freaking leading edge of my door.
My door is completely f_cked. The door will shut, but it does not seal anymore. I am afraid to find out the full extent of the damages because the hinges are no longer lined up properly.
He hit me with the right (passenger) side of his car. Completly split his bumper.
We exchanged information and I immediately called my insurance company. Then i called his insurance company. Now it appears its going to be a battle because he claims I opened the door into his car. Fortuantely, the physical evidence proves otherwise since it bent the leading edge of my door...something that can only occur if he ran into my open door. Either way, I am still pissed.
