    How Screwed Am I?

    My gf and I left Ames Friday to head home for spring break. We made a stop in Marshalltown to get some food at the Subway in WalMart. I pulled out of the parking lot to head back to Highway 30, and pulled out right in front of another car.

    They hit me right in front of the drivers side front tire, airbags deployed. No major injuries, gf did go to the hospital cuz she said her head felt weird. The other two in the other car were fine. Everyone is okay, just a little sore. Both cars might be totaled, but my parents think my car is fixable.

    My insurance does have full coverage.

    Im just curious as what to expect from here on now. How much willl my rates go up? For how long? Anything else I need to watch out for?

    that sucks, a lot.

    no idea, but as you're a male under 25 (assuming), I don't think it will be good :(

    but glad everyone's ok, that's the important thing.

    Re: How Screwed Am I?

    How old are you and what kind of car do you drive?

    Re: How Screwed Am I?

    Depends on a lot of factors. How old are you? What is your driving record like? Any previous accidents? Did the cops cite you for causing this accident?

    If this is your first accident, you'll probably be OK. Your rates MIGHT go up a bit, but they probably won't drop you.

    Clean record, but this was my fault

    Nothing will change. A simple fender bender is why you pay insurance premiums.
