I have a stock 2002 Miata with about 40,000 kilometers on it, and was in perfect shape. On October 6th @ 2:30 p.m. on East Columbia & Hume Park New Westminster, a young asshat rear ended me at the intersection @ perhaps 60 kilometers per hour. His 2000 Toyota Corolla sedan could be a write off, but the damage to my car does not at first glance appear to be too extensive. Still, among other items, the trunk lid is out of alignment, the rear bumper assembly is broken up, and the trunk lock has evaporated.
Outside of the vehicle repairs does anyone have any advice as to medical considerations and signing a release and if compensation is in order for lost time and inconvenience etc., and if so how best to go about this?
The impact felt like a mega-bomb and I was very lucky that at least I had my brakes on firmly and was pointed in a straight line, or I might not be here talking to you now!
I had to go the emergency room as my body shot up from the car seat and my head slammed into the bar supporting the convertible top. Big pain and quite stunned, but I seem OK now. The 2000 Toyota Corolla sedanís airbag enabled and the front of his car was well crunched in.
