    Anyone in the Auto Insurance industry

    I need some advice. I was hit by a drunk driver last night, aside from a very sore back, I seem to be ok. I'm concerned my car will be a total loss as it's 14 years old. If that is the case the value of the car is far less than its value to me, in the sense that it was well maintained by me and I didn't have a payment.

    The value of it is not likely enough to allow me to replace it with something comparable, with no money out of pocket. I'm wondering if there is any tactic or angle I can go at Progressive with to come out of this thing on top. Any advice is appreciated.

    Thank you in advance.

    I am in the auto claim world,and I say get some real legal advice from an attorney before you do anything else !

    also don't look at your insurance co as your enemy,they are on your side.don't "go at them",ask them for their help.

    Thanks Dan, my insurance is Geico, it is the other party that has Progressive. I have to say that Geico has been good to me since I've been with them and it is my expectation that they should be an advocate for me. However I don't believe there's much they can do or would be willing to do if I don't want to accept Progressive's offer.

    Well your sister is fond of the "reverse cowgirl" position and who am I to deny such an insatiable spirit?

    First, delete this post. Saying you are ok when you may not be isn't going to help your scenario. My wife works at the biggest law firm in Philly and she's feeding me info. Secondly, did you goto the hospital? If not, get to a doctor ASAP. Sore back now, ruptured disc in 6 months...who will pay? Always CYA. Take care of yourself. Cars come and go. Again, get to a doc ASAP and consult a lawyer.
