Insured drunk driver totaled my parked "cherry" Nissan sports car

by Carter
(Mill Valley, CA USA)

An insured drunk driver in a Mercedes hit my legally parked car 2 weeks ago.

My car is a 1995 Nissan 300 ZX Twin Turbo, fully loaded (T-Top, 17" wheels, CD player) in a rare color of cobalt green. It was in MINT condition (only 7,800 miles!) --

I took excellent care of it. Looked brand new. FYI, the police took a report and affirmed her as drunk with a sobriety test.

Her insurance company has deemed my car as "totaled". I want to get the maximum money for my loss. And I am really pissed off! What do I do? Thanks in advance for your help and advice.


Hello Carter,

Nice car indeed!

I am very sorry to hear about this. Beware of the total loss process, it really leaves a lot of consumers paying for damages they should not.

To maximize recovery, you want to read our total loss section and follow the steps there. You want to make sure that all your extra's and equipment are properly accounted for. Contact an attorney if you do need help getting full recovery.

I hope this helps.

Good Luck,
