    My $.02, Be nothing but a gentleman, and don't trying to win the world, talk to a lawyer, get what you deserve (car repairs, decreased value payment, any pain you might be in).

    muncipalitys have huge insurance companys to work for them in lawsuits they are a pain in the ass to deal with,hence talk to a lawyer, and cops remember people who try to screw them over and be jerks, so do their colleages, and yes it was his fault, and they will fix your car, and you if need be.
    But the next time you are running 10 over the posted, he might say "that guy was pretty cool when i hit him" or he might say, that guys a jerk and tried to screw me and the PD hardcore, lets give him a ticket.
    Don't ask me how i know, i just do.

    Keep records of everything done to the car, pics, repairs, so if you do sell it, you can show a patencial buyer what happen and why car fax shows and accident. I bought an impala ss that was wrecked, car fax showed totaled, but when he gave me all the paperwork and pics, it wasn't that bad, i bought it without hesitation, so it sometimes can help.
    Good luck sir.

    Wow, that looks like it hurts, LOL that sucks! The officers have so much electronics in the cars these days that their is just so many distractions to just the elementary basic driving skills. (Just saying to help defend my brother in blue) hope you and your awesome V are and or will be ok.

    Well for starters... 1k a piece for head lights, upper grille is 580 lower is 500+. You can save or make money if you can get the parts from luke at lindsay and have the shop reimburse you for the retail amount. I had my wheels powder coated instead of replacing three lower grille. Just a thought.

    It's not the body shop I would be worried about. The police report goes on Carfax and Autocheck. They will flag accident, case number and usually how severe the accident is. If you car was disabled it will put that. There is a 90% chance it will be on those reports in about 4 to 5 months. Trust me. I read them all day for my job as a buyer at a dealership.

    Maybe they need to make the brush guards a little smaller on the cop cars

    That's a lot more than 3-4, that's at least 10,000 if there's no frame damage. He pretty much needs a whole new front-end

    Re: police hit MY car!!!!!

    That sux my man...good luck with the repairs.....

    Be civil to the cop....not all of them are bad guys.....accidents do happen.....

    ...and just think....the cop has a boss, a Lt and a Capt to answer to....it is not going to be a walk in the park for him either....

    Bottomline: He wrecked your car....car will be fixed....and both of you walked away....things can ALWAYS be worse....

    Being listed as a professional driver and having attended way to many safety classes.
    They preached and usually proved.
    "There is no such thing as a vehicle accident".
    The only exception ever offered.
    If rear ended by an airplane that is falling from the sky while backing up.

    Hire a Lawyer to be sure you are fully compensated.

    Re: police hit MY car!!!!!

    I would avoid a lawyer unless you're getting a lot of resistiance, or are seriously injured . No attorney in his right mind would touch a PD case like this, there's no money in it for them. *You* would be paying *him* out of pocket as opposed to him receiving a percentage of the settlement amount in say, a large five-six figure+ B/I case.

    If you need someone to handle the BS for you, call your own insurance carrier. That's what you're paying them $100+/month for...

    and don't let them scare you about any nonsense that your premiums will go up. If they try to pull that stunt in a clearly 100% at fault TP auto accident threaten to drop them.

    OK, maybe just a skeptic here but those pics look so photoshopped I'm getting cross-eyed.
