    COLLISION!!!

    Because "accident" implies there's nobody to blame.

    (I can't claim that one...)

    Rammed at 40 miles an hour, I think you came out pretty good!
    Still going to be a pain to care of everything. At least it appears no one was hurt.

    Sorry to hear about the accident but I'm glad no one was hurt.

    Because we live in a world where accidents happen. I would not look into it any deeper than that. It's not your karma, at least in my view.

    "Accident" means the incident happened unexpectedly and was not intentional or deliberately caused. It applies to this situation. People who rear-end someone because they are not paying proper attention are considered negligent in tort thus are at fault -- i.e. they shoulder the blame. People who ram someone deliberately take it out of the "accident" definition. That doesn't apply here.

    If I'm not mistaken, Farmers will cover you and go after Mercury.

    My mistake, I meant State Farm, not Farmers.

    Either way you are correct, no matter the insurer, it will be a hassle.

    No dislike button. :(

    Really sorry this happened. There's some kind of loss that escapes my mind you want to fight for. Diminished value? Even if everything is fixed.

    It doesn't look like enough damage to be totalled to me but you will have a claim for accelerated depreciation / diminished value since that type of claim is not prohibited by legislation in California. I think it's always best to get the repairs done before you bring that up. The limitation on diminished value claims is 3 years in California, at least according to this lawyer's website.

    Good luck -- and I'm sorry to hear about your planned trip in July. It took me two months just to get an appointment with a Tesla approved repair shop up here and they told me it takes a long time to get parts from Tesla. Hopefully it's faster down there.

    For 40 mph that looks pretty good.
