I had no engine damage with this $18,000 claim. Just throwing this out there I think engine failure will be a stretch considering I hit the worst of potholes lol. Granted it conditions vary and something could most definitely gone wrong to cause mass oil leaks but judging from my pothole incident I'd say the motor fairs well on extreme impacts.

Like I said before best of luck buddy.

Edit: sorry for poor grammar iPhone changed some words and too lazy to fix.
Did your call fall into a canyon? That's crazy, and i've hit some serious potholes in DC. Never anything like that though.
More or less! It was longer and wider then my car and dropped 3-4" from the road height. Hit it going 80kmh (50mph). I live in Canada and on some of the back mountain roads there are serious pot holes.
