How much would it cost insurance to cover the damage on this house?
I was told the desk in that room got damaged, if that gives you an idea about the interior.
What the hell did you do, first of all?
Second, that's gonna cost a fuck ton. Can't tell you how much but it's gonna be expensive. I mean, that's a supporting wall, I'd assume. I hope you have good insurance.
I can't tell you how much your premium is going to go up without knowing what happened. I'd guess about 15%
Yes; I fell asleep, ran off road, ran through one property, ended up going sideways and hit the house of another property.
I'm not sure when I hit the brakes or if I ever did, but the friction from the tires dragging on the ground helped reduce the force of impact.
My uninsured/property damage coverage was 50/100, but I changed it to a smaller amount in 2014 because I didn't see any reason why I would get in an accident.
Then I got second job in 2015 and didn't bother to raise it.
Especially when they're both delivery jobs and your shifts are only a couple hours away from each other at night.
I should be thankful that I wake up at the slightest bump.
I wouldn't be posting this.
I'd say the best case scenario, if this couldn't have been avoided, is I was fully alert when I woke up and focused on spinning out in the yard or whatever that would only fuck up somebody's yard.
Instead, I was trying to focus on getting back on the road.
He rammed into that house without even asking permission, anon. NO house is ever "asking for it" unless they give consent, no matter how thin the walls are. Only if the house says "yes" can you hit it with your car
Holy guacamole. At least you hit a house and not another car head on.
There's a lot more than $25,000 damage there. The damage assessment alone, simply checking if the house moved on its foundations, water pipes, gas, etc will be around $3000. Then:
That wall needs to be demolished and reconstructed. Internal and external cladding, electrical and utilities (if any), alternate accomodation or inconvenience expenses, internal furnishings replaced if damaged.
Yeah don't tell the insurance people that you tried getting back on the road and leave the scene of an accident.
There's an update on the claim; still waiting to see how much it will cost me.
I was just thinking earlier that it's a good thing I didn't hit a car; I actually came pretty close in hitting one that was on jack stands and I found out later that somebody usually parks on a spot I would have slammed into if it were there the day of the wreck.
You can still live in a house if it's been slightly damaged, but you can't drive a car that's been slammed into.
I bet the owners would be extremely pissed off if I hit their car.
