    What a fine way to start off the new year than by getting rear-ended by someone on your way to work!

    Luckily I have a truck - with a hitch, so you can imagine the damage it caused to this guys maxima. I have a little scratch on my bumper but my back is killing me right now. It all happened on the highway - traffic was coming to a slow but this guy didn't seem to pay attention and SMACK - probably 40mph or so into me. I had looked up and actually saw it happen so as he hit me I jammed on my brakes to alleviate going into the person in front of me.

    I have to call the insurance company and all that fun stuff now... :(

    don't wait to go to the docs. if your back is killing you go asap, you need to document the problems if you want insurance to pay medical, and/or any missed work bc of it.

    No seriously, I agree with nootrac. Might as well get yourself checked out ASAP.

    +1.

    Even if you are not an asshole, go to the doc and get it all documented.

    If you have horrid back problems and need major treatment/get disabled in 5 years, you need to be able to collect.

    That sucks.

    I had someone rear end me a few weeks ago; but I did the opposite of what you did; I let off the brake a little and turned the wheel so I wouldn't hit the guy in front of me. The front end of her Galant was messed up but the rear of my car(96 Concorde) only had a bent license plate and some scratch and scuff marks.
