Last month, I was hit by a drunk driver who did not have insurance or a license. Fortunately I am ok and escaped without injury. However, my car was not so lucky. This drunk Darth Vader caused almost $6,000 in damages. What’s worse is I had just purchased the vehicle from a private owner and had not put insurance on it yet!
Fortunately, I was able to find a repair shop that was able to work with me in this difficult circumstance and get it drivable for $4,500.
I may be able to recover some of the amount in small claims court since the other driver was arrested at the scene. However, due to his circumstances, it is highly unlikely he will voluntarily pay and has so far avoided all negotiations.
Any amount you can spare would mean a lot to get me back on the road.
