    Default Tell us about ur accidents u had??

    an idiot woman pulled out of junction with oncoming cars both sides, I was the unlucky one when I swerved and she hit me on side send me skidding into opposite side oncoming car! Broke collierbone and oncoming car broken ribs, wrists, dislocated back and broken collarbone! To top it all, 65 years old and was on her way to her birthday party! And both collided cars wrote off!

    The idiot who hit me on the side was unharmed and car only needed new bumper! But convicted and tried in court and found guilty! Driving with undue care and attention and GBH 9 points . and ordered to pay court fees, fined £580, and ordered to pay fees for collided parties' car storage, removal and excess fees we had to cough up for claim!

    Last accident I was in, was sitting in a que of traffic on A1 near Grantham (?), artic lottery driver must have been asleep or lighting a fag as he braked late, ended up jack-knifing as he tried to turn away from the traffic que. Came skidding sideways into me, pushed my car into the car infront and that into the car infront.

    My Rover 213 was hit diagonally across the boot, which almost flatened it, there was a huge crease in the roof and where I had been flung forwards and then backwards, I had bent the seat back backwards, almost in half. Most of the glass had gone out and I was left with whiplash and one small cut. The front was quite crushed as well where it had shunted the car infront and the drivers door would no longer shut.

    Old couple in front were rather worse, the old lady broke her collar bone and the bloke had concussion, this was before airbags!

    Dont think anyone was ever charged or fined.

    1993, rolled a car at 60mph, fuel tank split, which ignited on the hot exhaust
    Crawled out and watched the spectacular results
    No injuries, due to wearing seat belt
    Closed a major trunk road in Scotland for several hours, outcome was due to a fuel spillage as diesel was found on the road just prior to the accident scene, which I pointed out to the Fire Brigade when they arrived

    1999, a Jaguar reversed into the front of my car whilst parked
    Driver claimed I shouldn't have been parked there, even though there was a big sign "Wait here" and road marking
    New front bumper and impact bar

    2003, a dog ran in front of my car, whilst at 40mph
    Minor damage to radiator mounings

    2006, a HGV hit the back of my car whilst parked
    New rear bumper and offside alloy wheel

    2006, a fox ran in front of my car, whilst at 70mph
    New front bumper, impact bar, nearside fog lamp, nearside tray

    2010, a HGV hit the back of my car whilst stopped at traffic lights
    Insurance company claimed I was at fault, for stopping at a red light
    Disputed as the HGV was less than two seconds behind my vehicle

    First one was in 2004/5 I was in the kitchen making a breakfast when I heard a aloud bang and saw my mum crashed into my car, bent the wing bumper and bonnet and buckled the steering it ended up being written off.

    Accident number 2 was 2 weeks ago when some dosey bint decided instead of slowing down as the car in front of her slowed to turn she would slam straight into me in the outside lane pushing me off the road and nearly into the central reservation. The claim is still ongoing but I don't expect my mondeo back thus the reason for buying my vectra

    Was insurance claimed for this? As I had a car run over the road (black cat) at dark in country lanes! I fixed but need new turbo hoses to intercooler and new bumper required but temp metal plates fitted to make it safe for road use. Not inspected and classed as safe til new one tho

    I remember when I first got a car after passing tests. Few weeks later at the multi storey car park which got a one way policy for cars to go one way round. I was parked, I looked at the direction of oncoming cars. Checked other way for passage by, reversed out to exit, the brand new BMW owner businessman decided he owns the car park went the wrong way, I reversed into his front wing which left a horrible dent and door! He stopped, got out crossly, I stopped and parked up (citreon zx in 2005) and said to him... Do you know this is a one way direction car park?

    He started to get cross but stopped and realised my defence is stronger than his excuses and calmed down, inspected the damage! I got my car for 300 and he paid 40,000! My car had no damage, his was a lot! He said sorry and got back in car and parked up, I left feeling great that I beaten a businessman making him rethink his actions and out of pocket! :-)

    2001 (8 hours after passing my test, driving my mums brand new mk4 Golf) - Young cyclist (about 10 years old) going the wrong way across a one way bridge didn't stop at a T junction and collided with my NS front wheel, throwing him & his bike into the air, then bounced 40ft down the road. New wing, wing mirror, bonnet, windscreen. Cheeky f**kers parents tried suing me claiming it was my fault! Also tried to claim for a broken mobile phone despite the fact that it had been used to call his mum & an ambulance!!

    2003 (mk3 fiesta) - Dropped a fag whilst going round a corner into a narrow side street. Looked down to find it, looked back up and wollop! hit a lamppost! Car written off.

    2004 (mums Golf again) - Span on black ice and slid into a stone wall. Chassis re-jigged, new bonnet, new bumpers (front & back), new headlight, new wing.

    2011 (preface vectra) - Turning off a main road into a side street and a freelander waiting to pull out of the same side street "didn't see me" & went into the side of the car. Car written off.
