Side accident | Can this total a car?

by Norma

I got into an accident which resulted in my fault. But I have doubts with me being fully at fault I didn't have the right away and I went and she hit me.

Her car was totaled. My doubt is with the car being totaled if the posted limit was 35 could a car get totaled at that speed? It was a small car so was mine.


Hello Norma,

Yes, a car can get totaled by a scratch. Total loss is not only a factor of damages but also a factor of the value of the vehicle that was being totaled. The smaller and the more inexpensive is car, the easier it is to totaled.
