Several Family Vehicles in Accidents

The good news, There is a god........The bad news is he hates my family. OK OK I am just joking around but it has been a crappy couple days. It seems that the only thing we need right now is exactly what we don't have, money. I'll start at the beginning, Friday morning my wife is in an accident. We are lucky that both her and the dog are not hurt but shaken up alittle. They were hit in the side by our local FedEx truck(can't wait for our next delivery HEH HEH HEH) Her Jeep is not so lucky the fenders, hood, grill, radiator, and some other parts are all screwed up and pretty bad. Insurance is going to cover it but still need to come up with $1000 deductable. Today my mother-in-law hit a deer and screwed her car up pretty good. She needs a new mirror, windshield, door and various other body parts. They don't have the money to afford to fix up and old car. And last but certainly not least, the XK suffers today as well. Now my damage was by far the least but I haven't been able to see it in the light yet. On the way home from work I was hit by a deer. The deer ran out of a ditch and was trying to cut in front of the jeep so I slammed on the brakes and swurved to avoid it but it turned and ran head on into the driver door. There is a dent that isn't too big but it was a buck so i'm not sure if there is much or any paint damage. I will be able to see what it really looks like tomorrow in the light I think I should be able fix it myself if it is not that bad. All I can say is I am very very very thankful that no one was hurt through all of this it just stinks having these things happen especially one right after the other. I will keep posting updates on the Jeeps being repaired.

Sorry to hear about the run of bad luck in the family vehicles. At least no one is hurt. Just to share the pain, last month we had 3 vehicles in the body shop in a period of 2 weeks. It is no fun.

Do like I did, take all 3 vehicles to the same body shop and try to get a deal. We had one of the $500 deductibles waived. Good luck.

Good Grief......I'm surprised your head didn't explode yet.
At least on the Fed Ex deal, it's a liability claim on their part, so you should be shielded from the deductable. Unless your a no fault insurance state, in which case I may have mis-spoke.
At least, everyone is OK, ya just got a bunch of cars to fix.

Hang in there, a year from now you'll have a great, my story sucks worse than yours situation,

Rob

Sometimes sh*t happens to everyone.

But looking at the bright side, your family is still lucky because no one is hurt.

that sucks. last month really sucked. this month is turning out good.

i'd make FEDEX pay for the damages. i know they have taken over $1000 from me this year. shipping is expensive.

Sorry to hear about the hard luck, and like everyone said, lucky no one was hurt. Now go enjoy a deer roast I know at one time cars killed twice as many deer as hunters every year, not sure if it is still that high, but I know cars are still in the lead, what a waste. Because they are tasty (Deer not the cars).

Good everyone is ok ... what man made can be fixed.

You should go for experience body shop who know how to deal with Unibody vehicles such as the Commander, they are tricky to fix!
