Oh my gosh, I’m so sorry!! That was such a bad excuse on his part! Who drives in reverse down ANY road, let alone gunning it right into you?! Sending lots of good vibes your way! Hope everything turns out okay!

Wow I would definitely sue that guy! What he did was irresponsible and illegal, and you shouldn’t be the one who has to suffer

I hope the cop got straightened out in that he reversed into you, rather than you rear-ending him.  That guy deserves a ticket for every single infraction the cop can come up with.  What kind of idiot drives in reverse on the road???  That’s not how anybody with a brain deals with missing their turn. 

You need to call a lawyer and see what can be done.

UGH.  I’m so sorry!  This was not just an “accident,” this was a severe lack of judgement on his part.  It baffles me that people can be so inattentive behind the wheel.  I’d say definitely try to get more money out of it (not to be an opportunist but I really think you should get more than just $1K!).

I’m so sorry this happened to you, maybe you could talk to you insurance people or a pro bono lawyer since your finances aren’t in the best shape. Things will work out, just try to keep calm – being stressed will only create more problems.

I doubt an atty would be able to help you out that much, other than make sure that you are compensated for your property damage. It sounds like he’s admitted liability though, if he has insurance they should cover it. 

It is super annoying though, sorry this had to happen!

How ignorant….who does that? Was he really young and stupid or just stupid? I hope you get more than 1k his insurance should have to pay or something because that is just so reckless

Wow, sorry you have to deal with this.  I disagree with trying to sue though.  At most, I think you’d be entitled your two days of lost wages for not making it to work since you are already getting paid out for your car, but that’s probably not worth the time or money to contact a laywer.
