only $500 for it? that seems like a rip off they are supposed to pay what the cost of buying another vehicle exactly like that would be if they total it

tell them to shove it and find dealers selling similar trucks. demand you get the medium of THEIR value. who gives a shit if it leaks and has a slipping trans? they dont know that.

Since you only have liability insurance, your only recourse is to file a lawsuit. Given the driver's history that will be a waste of money and the only thing that will happen is the court will file a judgement against the other driver. Your truck doesn't look like it's worth much so just let it go, it ain't worth the aggravation. I always carry uninsured motorist coverage because we have a bunch on under and uninsured drivers in this state.
No attorney would take your case anyhow because of the very low vehicle value.

i only have liabilty. thats what im afraid of. and when she got out of the car, she was wearing scrubs so i assume she is like a CNA or something like that.


You have to be smart to be a CNA, just take some vo-tech classes and have a pleasant way with patients. Obviously a very stupid women driving around without insurance.

I think the court's pretty much going to throw the book at that woman. Plus your insurance agent can pull DMV records at the drop of hat. An attorney would be a waste of time,besides the state's attorney will have the driver put away for a long, long time. Also you did get $500 bucks, and the truck was probably not even worth that. I'd just sit back and find out when her trial is and watch her get raped by your state. Plus you may have to show up anyway as a witness, because thanks to you they someone off the streets that shouldn't be on the streets period.

im just going to take the 500 and run. no sense in spending a fuck ton of money on a lawyer, court fees ($75.00 a day), and then trying to get more money out of it. its not worth near 500. but the insurance guy did say he was going to look around online and see how much they were going for and would try to get us closer to that. he just told us that the 500 is what he might give us. just gonna let it go after we get the settlement and go on with our lives, BUT i will be going to her hearing and what not just to see what they give her. kinda interested in knowing what is going to happen with her.

Yeah, that would be best. Considering she was a fugitive, and had charges pending she's probably in jail now awaiting her trial. I doubt she could even make bail, because that's not even an option when you get caught after being on the run. Plus if they did give her bail, no bonding agent would give her the time of day.
