Default So, I got rear-ended yesterday, how about you?

Hey guys! What's going on in this thread?

Anyway, so I'm heading North on US-19 going to a movie theatre with the fam. The Mercedes SUV tries to switch lanes to the right with me in his blind spot. I honk repeatedly to grab his attention. He swerves back into his lane while I pass him. He then speeds up to cut off (seriously close) the person behind me, after speeding up and cutting the person off, he rear ended me.

Not too much damage. I have to replace the rear bumper and the passenger taillight.

I'll upload pics later.


We decided to handle it outside of insurance, so we'll see how it works out.

Wow, that driver seems like a winner . Did you have it checked out by a professional to make sure there aren't any "internal injuries"? This could go horribly wrong if there is more damage and they decide to get pissy with you. I personally would let my insurance company handle it.

I would have let is insurance take care of the situation. Rear end collisions are usually paid for without haggle. My Brother-In -Law was in a minor rear end collision and was awarded $1700 by the insurance company within a week.
