I was rear-ended on tuesday when I stopped at a red light and the person behind me didn't!! My car has received a lot of damage to the back and now it's undrivable. I called the other persons insurance company straight away to start my claim. I'm now waiting for someone to call back to start the investigation. I have worried myself by reading reveiws on the insurance company - Bristol West - and they are not good. It seems they are really bad at handeling claims and it can take months or them to investigate. Here's my problem - my husband is in the military and we're PCSing (relocating) in 2 months!! We're going from Arizona to Louisiana and I'm worried that the car wont be fixed in time. Last time I was rear-ended, it took over a month for the repairs to be done!! (Tucson drivers suck!!) What happens if the car isnt ready by the time we PCS?? Please, does anyone know?? I'm really woried ... thanks

I'd check with state laws in Arizona, but I believe the insurance company is suppose to provide you with a rental car for each day your car is kept in the shop. Was there any citation involved? Police/accident report? Have you talked to your insurance company? They may be able to help you by communicating with the other driver's insurance company, and could put pressure on them to get moving with the repairs.

Drive your rental to the new duty station. But worry about that when the time comes.


"The fact that we are here today to debate raising America’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the U.S. Government can’t pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government’s reckless fiscal policies."

Hope you called the police immediately, in most cases the offender will be issued a traffic violation that helps greatly in a claim settlement. I also call my insurance company and let them handle the other guys insurance company, that's what I pay them to do. Son was read ended, did call the police, and accident report was filed, but he elected to handle the guy that hit him himself. The other insurance company told him after seeing his estimates that he was 30% at fault for being there. He was stopped at a red lite traffic light with school kids crossing. If he wasn't there, kids would have been killed, we took that insurance company to small claims court, and got full repair damages for his vehicle, was over 4,000 bucks. I just as soon as call my insurance company, they don't pull that ####### with other insurance companies.

Also recommend you take your car to your dealer for repairs, some independent body shops are quite shady, insist on all OE components, and correct hardware, see body shops use dry wall screws for repair, not good, your vehicle should be in the same shape it was before the accident.

I insist to see the paint booth, must be a heated one for a baked on finish, the only way the paint will last, Ford and Chevy dealers in town are the only body shops that have those.

Hiya

(((hugs))) sorry to hear about it. SO complains about Tucson driving too! lol... but then, having spent 5.5 months as a passenger in London, he's changed his mind about how bad they are and decided that they're also impatient and entitled to boot!

Can't help with the question, but just wanted to send you some hugs :)

My favorite "rear ending" story:

Charleston, West Virginia 1967

My Mom and Dad are taking a ride. Dad is driving. Dude rear ends him. Dad gets out. Conversation gets heated. Dad goes for the bluff:

Dad: "Diane, get my gun out of the glove box".

Mom: "What gun Mark"?

Dad slinks back to car and drives away.

:lol:

Humor is all I have to offer!

I agree with NickD, in part.

Let your insurance company handle the details. Generally, good insurance companies like USAA, will take care of your needs while the settlement is in process with the "at fault" driver's insurance company.
