Hello people, please help me out.
My car was parked in a private parking area and the front part was smashed by a driver when he was backing a van. I have already gone filed a claim with his insurance company and the company has already assigned an adjuster to me and he is gonna call me today, i havent talked to him at all, i just left voice mails to call me back asap. My car’s front part was smashed, rightside headlight was out of place / snatched out, grills were torn and some bolts or parts might have fallen down at the accident spot. Should i demand for repair or total my vehicle ? My classes are gonna start from Tuesday so i’m in a deep deep trouble now, i dont have any rides. I have these questions :

1. I have permit but the accident happened while the car was parked, so is there any problem for me? cuz all fault was of the other party.
2. If they provide me with a rental and i dont have the license, but my best friend/ roommate does, can we take the rental car on his driver license and he n i will use the car to go to college? is it compulsory for the rental to be on my name?
3. will the insurance company give at least some downpayment for totalling the vehicle because I really need to buy another car if i have to because i have to go college 4 days a week. so frends, u can figure out how much i need a car.

please help me out frends,,,, this was my first car accident and my car was parked !!,,, I appreciate you for any advice, thanx

so the car got smashed up a little.. in order to sell it it would have to be repaired (front end damage and the two front tires would have to be replaced). it’s like a 2000 or maybe 2001 crown vic… i wasn’t driving it, and i don’t have it, but it was supposed to be given to me not that i really was happy about it but i wanted a car and it was my grandparents’ so they were giving it to me. now my mom says that with the damage and what not i would be better off selling it for parts than fixing it and using it or selling it, and i want to buy a car anyway and i already know what i want. so if i sell the car i would put it toward getting this other car. question is, would i make more fixing it and selling the car or selling it for parts? my mom says sell it for parts but i don’t think she really knows. it still works it’s just not that attractive inside and now it’s f’ed up outside too.

im at the part where im in the mansion where someone smashed the crystal. i cant figure out how to put the pieces correctly so that i can repair the clock! can someone please help me??
nevermind i figured it out! heres a hint: put a little gear between the two big ones, and connect the medium rope thing (i dont remember the name) onto the little one that you just put between the two big ones. (make sure its pointed down.) that should help you alot.

I have a nikon Coolpix S210 and recently my friend dropped it on the floor while checking the pictures. I think it smashed the lenses because it froze and when we turned it on it said “Lenses Error” What do I do? Will it cost alot to just repair it? Plz reply! Thnx.

I checked my how my Wii was doing at, but for 4 days since Nintendo recognized it, nothing on the page has changed. It still just says: CONSOLE ASSY WHITE RVL $0.00
And still no release day.

Does this mean it’s just sitting there, or are they fixing it? Is it time to worry?

Out of control during a temper tantrum, Malcolm smashed his fist through a glass door. Several tendons were sliced through at the anterior wrist. What movements are likely to be lost if tendon repair is not possible?

A taxi driver decided to switch lanes without looking today on a roundabout and as i was right up the side of him, he smashed into my car and the whole side of my car is smashed up.. I went mental, i was screaming and yelling and everything.. but then i calmed down and realised it was just an accident and my insurance would sort out the damage as it was HIS fault not mine..
About an hour ago, his taxi driver boss rang me up and said “so i believe the accident was your fault” i said no of course it wasnt my fault.. etc etc.. and explained.. He said “ok i understand, i will question him and get back to you later tonight”

Well its nearly 11pm and he still hasnt called..

If this man decides to blame me, what option do i have?? There was a passenger in the taxi but i believe they are friends as he used her phone to take photos of the scene..

I am so worried incase they say its my fault and he claims off my insurance.. If this happens, i will have a smashed up car that i’m liable to repair myself (brand new car, bought 9 weeks ago!.. cant afford to repair it.. only insured third party, fire & theft) and also my insurance will be so high next year as its my first year of driving and i am only a 17 year old.

My question is.. what are my options? What can i do to prove it wasnt my fault?

Thanks so much!

Oh.. nobody stopped their cars except us involved in the crash, so there are no witnesses..

Well, here’s the issue: I have a copy of Super Smash Bros. Brawl, and I got it on the American Release date. (Preorders FTW) It has no visible scratches or any other damage. I have tried to clean it every way possible. I have used a damp cloth, I have used a shirt, I’ve blew on it, to no avail. It still cannot read the disk.

Can somebody help me with this problem? I’ve already checked the Manual, nothing. I checked Nintendo’s website, and all they have is some kind of system where they repair the disk for you. I would prefer not to have to wait a month to get my disk back.

So, I’m really looking for a do it yourself way to clean a game disc.

Thanks in advance,

[EXTRA NOTE: I have put the disk in and out well over fourty times in total. = /]
Thanks for all your help so far, and all my other disks work, and I am putting it in the right way. Josh, how do I update my Wii’s Firmware?
