I sure hope the guy has insurance though.
Check into your uninsured motorist coverage, the uim I have seen only covers medical bills to people in your car, in the event you are hit by someone with too little or no medical coverage.
I feel for you, my wife's Bravada was recently rear ended. The driver claimed to have insurance but provided no proof, she received a ticket for over $400.
The cop also told her not to turn it into her insurance company ? There also was no report made because he called it a fender bender. I have estimates for $ 1400. + frame time, the back doors and the tailgate do not work properly now. (wife was too shaken up at the time to notice.)
To top it off the address given on her license is not current and the phone # given is her cell that she won't answer.
