You could bring your car to your body shop and they can order it for you. Depending on which bumper you get.

Just take the check your insurance company sends you, cash it and buy whatever parts you want. Sorry about your car but I love how the rider just gets up and rides off like nothing happened.

Not necessarily that easy. Depending on the amount of damage ($$) your insurance company will want to make the check out jointly to either you and the body shop or you and the leinholder since this is a comp claim against your own policy. You can have the body shop order the parts for you and pay the difference, or you can do what I did and just order the aftermarket parts out of pocket and have the shop reimburse you. They will reimburse you for the value of the stock part as listed on the estimate. If you get a good deal on the parts you ordered you could end up coming out ahead.

Sorry about the car...as others have stated it could've been worse. It must be a fairly common thing in OH, I know of two clients that were hit by deer. One had his hunting knife in his trunk and took home some fresh venison. He swears it is legal in OH.

The motorcycle cracked me up...he just got back on and took off

wow glad you're okay.. Its funny because this happened to me as well. I was in a small canyon and saw a deer crossing sign, i laughed because there couldn't possibly be any deer in that area. 10 seconds later Bambi comes out of no where, i slam on the breaks while it literally jumps over my car! Its hooves left a scuff on the back end of the car but that buffed right out

I'm glad you're ok man! I was driving to a friend's house a few years ago, and he lives off of a pretty wooded county road, and I came across a herd of deer in the highway. All of them ran away except for one. It decided to lower it's head and charge the side of my car, rammed right into the driver's side door. Apparently deer are just crazy... Once again, sorry to hear about the car but glad you're not hurt.

well just met the insur adjuster at the body shop and so far without opening the hood bc it won't open, new bumper&bumper shroud, new hood, new headlights(yes angel eyes broke on each side), and the AC condenser was dented from where the grill was shoved in so that too. I'm hoping that's it, and I can just get the car back on the road ASAP.

I don't really care about an aftermarket bumper and it sounds like a hassle, I just want my car back that I've had less than a month lol

Lucky for me I haven't sold my other car yet, so I don't need a rental lol

AND thanks everyone, I am lucky I wasn't speeding. I was actually on my way to a big weekly car cruise-in at the local 1/4 mi track, and out of the 50 or so cars that passed 3 or 4 actually stopped to see if I was ok while everyone else either raced past me or rev'd as they went by which was nice while trying to talk to my insurance agent on the phone.
