    Is the spot on the passenger side where the door appears scratched and the mirror broken possibly from the truck hitting the Subaru as it agressivly changed lanes to the left?

    Yeah it's kind of vague. If the truck actually made contact with the wrx, he should be in the clear....

    He MIGHT be in the clear. I don't think the truck made contact with his car.

    Never argue with idiots. They'll drag you to their level and beat you with experience.

    That really sucks. Not sure if this will console you much, but my buddy's friend in the military had just served like 5 years and got this huge pension. He went out and bought a truck and, before getting it insured, drove some friends up to the top of some mountain to show it off. Anyway, they got out and, would you believe, he left it in neutral. I guess he didn't set the brake hard enough either, because it rolled off the mountain and was totaled. So he lost all his money that same day, and returned to the army to serve another five years. Talk about depressing.

    Just remember, it could always be worse :P

    First off, I'm sorry this happened but glad you are OK.

    Secondly, in terms of "comfort," I also opted out of gap insurance from the dealer. State Farm called me for a good 8 weeks straight trying hassle me into refinancing my loan through THEM and they would include something similar to gap. After driving my car for about 6 weeks (a little over 1000 miles on it) I asked my insurance agent what my car was worth vs what I would owe at this point in time (just curious as to their depreciation rate). He told me that even without the gap, I would still break even. Hope this helps some. Keep us posted!

    Did the cops believe your story or did they pull the black box out?!

    Guys/girls,

    first off thanks for the comforting words. I'm still alive, in bed all weekend. I've been a little vague in my OP.

    It was a truck that hit me (he was switching lanes aggressively and didn't see me) causing me to run into 3 parked cars waiting on their light...

    Just a fyi, your car is not worth 20K. Since you had no down payment, then i don't think you have too much to lose, in terms of money. Hearing from the description, it looks like the car is totaled. If it is, your loan should be covered. I do not think you will be hit financially. Did you get the license plate of the douche bag who ran into you?

    Were there witnesses? Cameras?

    I think you will be fine, financially.
    Just keep your head up and look forward to another WRX,
    Thanks. Yes there was witnesses and no cameras. The guy admitted to fault the day of the accident. Whether today he still claims fault or not is up in the air...

Some insurance companies give accident forgiveness and will replace your car with one a year newer in the event of total loss. You might be ok on this get better and let us know how it works out.

    Good Luck!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    P.S. Always get the gap insurance especially on the next one.
    I'll get the gap insurance. Mercury is my insurance. I don't know who his was since the cops handled it all...

    I'm not sure how they are going to come after me but i'm getting a lawyer in case it does go south...

    Yes. The side of my car/mirror broken off (the whole length of my subie) is where the truck hit me running me off the road.

    Glad you're alright man. Definitely in to find out how things get handled. Insurance is a screwy business and hopefully it works out for you.

    It will come down to how much liability the insurance companies decide to put on you. Just out of curiosity, what do you have for property damage and medical coverage on your policy?

    So the truck DID hit you. Did that person stop? That will be a major factor in determining liability.

    Someone forgot his reading glasses

    He said in the very first post of this thread, the truck hit him, forcing him into the other lane. Then he said that "the guy admitted fault the day of the accident." I'm not one to assume on things like this...but in order to admit fault, you kind of have to be there when it happens.
