Last Sat I was driving east in a mixed residential/business area on a three lane street. A pick up was headed west and as we both came to an intersection an idiot driving a small Toyota SUV blew through a stop sign doing at least 50 MPH. The pick up T boned the Toyota on the driver’s side and sent it air borne. The Toyota turned upside down and landed on the hood of my 2012 VW Jetta with only 9300 miles. Trust me, not a sight one wants to experience as it seemed to be out of a movie or TV show.
The owner of the body shop assures me they can repair it to like new condition and we both think the front suspension adsorbed a lot of the energy. The hood, driver’s side outer & inner fender, windshield, DS headlamp assembly, the driver side front pillar, some trim and possibly the grill will need replacement. We do not know how much hidden damage there is under the hood & fender. The bumper, both side view mirrors, the passenger side fender all will need some repair and/or repainting.
Bottom line is the value of my car will be depreciated due to the accident, no matter how well the repairs are completed. What do you recommend for me as to how I should go about obtaining compensation for the reduced value of my car? I’ve attached a pic of the car in question.
Thanks in advance
