Angry someone rear-ended me

well as the title says someone rear-ended me thursday night when i was driving to my friends house. at first i thought just the bumper and towing package would need to be replaced but today we took it to ford and they said that i shouldn't be driving it because it looks like the frame could possibly be bent in the back...
heres some pictures of the damage









and this is what happened in the interior when i got hit



insurance should cover everything but its still frustrating because you cant get the re-sellability back...

I think you're feeling delayed symptoms of whiplash and and lawsuit. lol

Sorry about your truck man, I bet it was someone on their cell phone not paying attention to anything. I hope they got the worse of it. Last time I was rear ended the car was nearly totaled and my rear bumper was the only thing needing to be replaced. Every place I took it too said the same thing too, I had frame damage blahblah. They just smell blood in the water (money from insurance) and want a bite.

If you're worried about it get a reputable car inspector, like a pre-purchase inspector who has no previous knowledge of your truck to do a inspection. Usually only costs $100 or so and they can tell you everything about your truck. That's what I do when I think I have a problem. I have no trust in shops around here. At least the guys who do pre-purchase inspections have nothing to lie about, they can't make anymore money off of you after you pay that initial inspection fee.

Definitely go to the company recommended by your insurance... assuming yours is like mine and carries a lifetime warranty with all work performed by their shop it's well worth it! Bummer though...

well from what my parents have told me so far (there handling everything since i'm only 17) it sounds like were having to go through the other guys insurance since it was his fault. my mom said our insurance wants nothing to do with it because it wasn't my fault. i'm not really sure tho. my parents said there gonna have it fixed soon

and it was a toyota tundra that hit me. the older like 2000-2005ish ones. not the new body style but the old body style.

Yeah, they should have the same policy... I would assume your parents don't want to deal with the hassle of using your own shop... just sayin' either way to use the one whichever insurance company recommends
