It’s one of the most frustrating and terrifying moments of owning a car. One minute, you’re driving along, minding your own business. The next, you’re in the middle of the road, pulled off to the curb, whatever—and your car is totaled.
Some accidents are worse than others. What we here at Jalopnik want to know, though, is how you recovered. What happened with your vehicle? What steps did you personally need to take before you got behind the wheel again? What was the most mind-numbingly awful legal shenanigans you had to go through? We want to hear it all.
