    Default ever get into a car accident?

    i have no idea why i thought of this. i just... did. lol. oh i think i read somewhere on here that someone got into an accident? i dunno. but i figured i'd make a thread outta it : ]

    i have, like a few weeks ago. it was really scary. some idiot was trying to swerve into my car, and my mom paniced and hit the gas to move foward, then the guy in front of us braked outta nowhere to turn i guess, and we hit them. but my mom has a Hummer H2 so we pretty much suffered no damage... lol. but we hit like, a Chevy work-van and the 2 doors in the back were smashed in... oh and my mom was like having a nervous breakdown cause i was screaming cause it was like my first accident, and she thought i got hurt and started flipping out. lol i love my madre.

    did any one here ever get into a car accident??

    Did you get compensation? I know you see all those ads full of ambulance chasers but that sounded like a genuine nothing you could do about it accident.
    I'm a bit mental.

    Well adding a bit more on the compensation discussion, i work in a solicitors office, the main cases we deal with are RTA's cases (road traffic accidents) and i must say with that type of accident mate you should of got alot more than 10k. I mean with a whiplash injury that lasts around 5 months, can get you around 3k, so a Broke a leg, arm, two ribs, and whiplash, i would of said could of got you a hell of alot more than 10k.
