so true never underestimate the injuries. My last shunt rear ending at 60mph I was statinary in traffic when a guy hit us from behind. At first thought nothing of it. ended up having to have surgery to rebuild my shoulder which tore some ligaments and not to mention months of physio on my next and spine and same for the wife. This only became apparant on day 3 once the body relaxed and then the pain kicked in. Hope it all heals and nothing serious but do get yourself checked up you never know.

Must have been a bad collision, it even knocked your number plates lettering out of line!

There must be a few people in the world who do suffer some injuries but decide not to go after the s and just recover from their pains, are there ??

I've got a similar spec car to you, so felt an extra pang! Really sorry.

Will you be buying another 335d?

Oh Yes!!
Only had this one 10 months and 4000 miles, so I haven't had a suitable chance to explore the edges of the envelope!

I'd be looking for a similar spec car, in blue again. Maybe not the Paranoid Roof, as I wasn't bothered about that when I bought it, but the OH likes it.

It is significant that the roof popped off early on in the accident, and I suspect is a factor in the creasing to the roof, being a weak point.

I'd like DAB radio, but that's about it.

Seriously OT but you went on OK with DAB? I've wondered whether I should have spec'd it but the other day had a Mini loaner with DAB and could only get Absolute 80s and BBC Asian Network. Made me glad I didn't bother.

Hope you, your son and the dog are OK btw. Any more aches and pains or news on the numpty in the Scooby?

I'd like DAB in principle - I'd like the extra choice. How good reception is here in the sticks I'm not sure.

Dog's been for a check up today, along with his annual jabs and he's fine.
Son's in better shape physically than me and he's driven about a bit, but he's admitted to his Mother that he has been feeling a bit vulnerable at times in his car. Sitting at traffic lights, expecting someone to come out of the blue and hit him. Not said anything to me though. I'm getting better with the aches and pains, and my left hand swelling has reduced enough so I can now grip and make a fist. Some more bruises have come out over the weekend, but aren't painful at all.

No more news on the driver, and his insurance situation. As I'm going back to work, I'll leave it for a couple of days and see what's what.

Looking closer at some pictures, he must have hit me pretty well side on as his RH indicators and headlamp are still intact, unlike mine. Still can't understand a) how he ended up facing the wrong way and b) how on earth the 4x4 that was turing right ended up unscathed!!


BTW: thanks again to all those who sent good wishes - they are appreciated at times like these

Well, the car has now been classed as a Cat D by the insurance.
Repair costs about 19k
The verbal offer of replacement value was fair - after a bit of negotiations anyway!! Just got to wait for the paperwork to come through, tranfer the number plate and get some odds and ends from the car.

Now I've got to start looking for a replacement!!

Happy days, its car shopping time. Do they offer you enough to replace the car with a similar model or will you be out money to even get back to where you were.

On the personal injuries front, like Magic, I was rear ended @ 40mph while I was sitting sat still at some lights and was persuaded by my insurance co. to go through the motions of a claim. I'm not one for claiming normally, but six weeks after the accident I still had real issues with my neck and left shoulder, so I was dispatched to the accident assessment Consultant who said that I'd be ok in about 2 years and the claim went through anyway. I didn't push it and I got a small sum. Nothing really compared with what I've since heard others get, but that's not my way.

Anyway, after 3 months of physio and a year on anti inflammatories, 18 months in total I was feeling ok.

Fast forward 4 years and I'm back at physio, I'm in daily discomfort with my neck and back on the anti-inflammatories. They've put it down to the truama of that accident and my aging frame... it'll take a while to sort out with the physio on the NHS, money that could probably have been better used on more urgent ailments, but thanks to someone who wasn't watching what they were doing, it's being spent on me.

It's not the injuries at the time you need to be wary of, it's the longer term affects on your body as you get older that you should be concerned about.

I'm so glad you're both OK but I thought you would be interested in my experience.

Thanks for that Statler.

2 weeks on and most of the bruising has gone.
I think I've got a bit of glass embedded in the back of my hand, which hasn't bothered me much - only when I put my hand in my pocket, which isn't often but as of half an hour ago, the offending bit poked it's nose out, so that will be gone soon. (I didn't want to open the area in case I get an infection as I'm working with some dirty stuff at the moment).

So far no aches and pains that can't be attributed to old age and working!!

The settlement should be enough to get me another car the same if I can find one, perhaps even one a little younger as prices for the 335d seem to be lower at the moment.

So for the time being I'm Mondeo Man, using my hack car (2 litre TDCi. 117k. Tatty. Economical. Towbar to be fitted for the caravan!)

And that's the end of that car.

Or is it?? It was carted away on a transporter to the salvage company yesterday. Maybe someone will repair it and get it back on the road as a Cat. D

The cheque for the agreed amount arrived today. Thanks Aviva.
