    Angry Its happened again.....

    On Wednesday last week I was sat in a traffic jam in Liverpool City Centre. The car infront of me decided that he didn't want to wait and decided to go on the wrong side of the road to get around the blockage.
    The idiot driving cam face to face with a bus and had to reverse...... without looking or listening to me blasting the horn...... he went straight into my offside front wing. To make matters worse, the idiot driver tried to carry on without stopping.
    Needless to say I stopped him in his tracks by taking his keys before shouting a few choice phrases at him.
    The damage doesn't look too bad, a dent and crease on the wing and scrapes on the bumper, but I think the tracking has gone out and the bumper isn't sitting right now.
    It's going into the body shop on saturday and I'm apparently getting either an Insignia or a Mondeo as a hire car. Got a long drive to Essex on Saturday afternoon so will be a good chance to test it out for a potential replacement.
    To make matters worse, the 10mph shunt has aggravated my already dodgy shoulder and caused more pain in my lower back..... solicitors are handling that now.
    Fuming is a mild word to describe how I feel now......

    Thanks mate, after the prang in Feb this year it had 2 new doors. So after this session, its pretty much going to be a new motor.
    Maybe its time to get shut of it before something else happens!

    Sorry to hear that, lets hope he was insured. Have you tried that insurance website to see. Hope your back and shoulder mend quickly as well as your motor.

    You should go to the local A+E and get yourself checked over or your GP, will help with the claim, i.e. proof your in pain.
    Hope your feeling better soon.

    I've had my physiotherapist log the new aches and pains and when Im off next week, I'm going to try and go to the GP to get some new painkillers. Pain trying to get booked in because of shifts in work.
