Rob's Wreck

It has been two weeks since Rob was slammed into by an 18-year-old racing on the freeway. Winesses who stopped at the accident said the boy and another car passed them going at least 90 mph just before he lost control and hit into Rob's rear quarter panel and sent him spinning completely the opposite direction on the freeway. What a frightening experience that was.

The ordeal that has followed hasn't been any less harrowing--dealing with insurance adjusters and claims agents is as painful as slamming your head into the side window of your car and having your neck snapped like a whip. Needless to say, the frustration level at our house has been high. Rob is still driving his trashed car even though the tail light is smashed, one tire is riding on its edge, the trunk doesn't close, and the whole rearend is displaced 6-7 inches to the right.

Hopefully week three will yield some absolution to the problems and Rob can find himself a new ride. The whiplash and headaches may take a little longer to resolve than the crashed car...

Oh my goodness...I had no idea! No one told me about this. I am glad Rob is okay. I know all about dealing with insurance too. NOT FUN. If Aubrey only knew how much time I've spent on the phone trying to take care of all the insurance issues after her April
17th wreck...it IS frustrating, to say the least. And ya know what...it's August and we are STILL dealing with all that. Good luck and we are so glad Rob is okay.

Wow, we had no idea. Happy that Rob is not hospitalized. Hope he is really ok. Seems like your insurance should at least pay for a rental while you are waiting for settlement.
