Of course, it looks much better for you, in the judge's eyes, that you attempted to take care of it before it got to his court room. The fact is, the stupid fucker KNOWS he had no insurance and he KNOWS he is responsible for the damages.

If it were my ML, I would have strongly encouraged the adjuster with the help of my friend, Vinny, that the vehicle should be totaled and I be paid 110% of it's value.
Yep, I am sure upon close inspection that the front chassis railing is bent with an obvious metal fatigue spot where it meets the pillar. Take it to a frame shop

I have full coverage for everything, my deductible is 20 USD and my rates are 1.65%.
I could have gone with a lower deductable which would translate to higher rates but I hedged my bet that I wouldn't wreck. I don't know a soul who drives without insurance, especially a newer car. Well, I guess I know 1 now.
