ok guys so i need some help from here..

9:30 am after dropping my pops off im slowing down at a yellow light when BOOM i get hit from behind and get pushed into the intersection.

Me and the kid (17 y/o) pull into a parking lot and he started telling me that well settle outside of insurance and his father is coming.. the father arrives and we begin to speak for a little.. they speak in russian, the kid enters the fathers car and drives off.. the father enters the damaged car rides around in circles for a while as im memorizing his cars details.. the father then takes off.

i call the cops, tell them what happened, give them all the info on his car, have about a 20 minute conversation with the officer about led zeppelin. the officer shares some details about the driver that he shouldnt have and i head home.

i tell my insurance company what happened (geico) and they begin to file a claim with his insurance company.

then go to see a doctor for pain in my upper/lower back, upper neck and calf muscle.. im having an attorney appointed for me on monday.

my car has side quater damage, bumper is crushed, trunk is broken and rear tire is shifted.

any advice from here ?

Yea most likely the kid is not in the insurance plan. Or neither of them have insurance.

the father is insured (one of the things the officer shouldnt have shared). i doubt the kid is though.. he didnt even look old enough to drive

i gave the insurance code to geico and my claims adjuster is contacting them.

Shouldn't have let them leave until the cops got there really but it's a little late for that. Stick to your story and hope they slip up and get nailed on it, and pray the.. whoever takes your side, if you're lucky the fault will be placed on him, especially for leaving the scene but the worst that might happen will probably be a 50/50 fault. How old are you btw? since the kid's only 17 if you're older they'll probably decide in your favor, him being a new driver and all. Good luck!

im 21.. was in an accident a week ago which was my fault but it should have no bearing on this claim.

geico is stating i have zero fault so it amounts to a zero-sum game imo.

If you braked on purpose to get a new car, the accident would have been before the intersection.

If he was driving too fast and hit you as you were slowing for a yellow light, the accident would have been in the intersection.

You said the accident happened (ended I guess would be a better word) in the intersection, so all you'd have to do is prove this in court and that'll be that. NEXT MYSTERY.

I'm guessing you didn't take pictures or anything immediately after the accident as you said you drove into a lot, so it'll make proving that more difficult. Tire marks on the road maybe?

Yeah, I always thought it was illegal to leave the scene of an accident before police arrive? But I guess if it isn't a big accident.

Also I'm pretty sure rear enders are always 100% fault for the driver who hits you. Leave lots of space!

You got rear ended. He's 100% at fault in any case. Were there any witnesses?

I think that's pretty cool how you and the officer had a nice chat about Led Zeppelin. Other then that, I really can't contribute much to this thread, since I am too young to drive.

You're completely in the clear. You have enough evidence to support you that you'll be compensated for any damages (both car and personal). They will both (father and son) be probably charged with reckless/careless driving, following too close, leaving the scene of an accident, speeding (possibly), and most likely obstruction of justice if the father tries to say that he was the one who hit you.

Its your story with evidence versus their story alone. I think you're good.

You want to see if the store manager will give you a copy of the video if it shows the dad driving up after the accident. It is the other parties fault in any case since you were rear-ended, even if you braked arbitrarily. If they are arguing in court that the father is driving and you have video showing otherwise, I can't think that it is gonna hurt. I would suggest getting a lawyer just in case and then see what the insurance company says.

I love it when people get nailed. Really gets me off.
