Default Glad it wasn't the Porch

Got rear ended by a 91 year old guy driving his minivan. Poor dude, Korean war vet like my dad. He totaled his car. Straight section of road, clear weather and daylight. I saw him behind me and slowed down gradually, with my turn signal on to turn right onto a gravel parking lot. He said that he just didn't see me.

What really happened is you backed up into his van.


Raise your hand if you believe that.

You think veterans in their 90's crash their cars on purpose? What planet are you from?

So in your state you have to depend on the other guy’s insurance?

Looks like the trailer hitch saved you. Would have been even less damage if you had a ball mount and ball on there.

Guy sounds like my dad (91 year old vet). He's basically blind and doesn't drive anymore but the state would sell him a driver license if he wanted one

He can make a claim against his insurer under either his collision or his uninsured motorist coverage. Each option comes with a deductible. In theory, his insurer will pay out, then subrogate against the at fault party, and if they collect from the at fault party, they'll issue him a second payment for his deductible. In practice, that's a rarity.....the kind of people who don't carry insurance don't pay up and most are judgement proof, in a "can't get blood from a stone" type situation.
