What to do about a "fender bender" in MA?

In Massachusetts: Yesterday on my way to work, going about five miles per hour in morning traffic, I bumped the car in front of me. (My fault; I was totally distracted by the kid waiting for a school bus who looked like he was about to run into the middle of the street.) We pulled off to the side of the road and I took a look at the "damage" -- a couple of scratches to the paint on the (plastic) bumper.... [more inside]

Car accident and no police report.

I was rear-ended this weekend and decided not to call the cops to file a report. There's very little damage to my bumper, but I still have some questions about what, if anything, I should do. [more inside]

happy new year. i miss my car.

Car Insurance Filter: I've searched but can't find an answer. My car was most likely totaled today by someone rear-ending me. However, I still owe $11K on it. How does this work? How can I get another car? I feel so screwed. [more inside]

*crash* Fortunately, we all had insurance. Which one of the three companies gets the claim?

Out of state rental car driver who paid for the Loss Damage Waiver backed in to us. We have his insurance information and claim number, and also reported the incident to our insurance company, which offered to cover damages to the car. We think we'd like to have repairs covered under the rental company's LDW. Do we have the right to choose who should foot the bill? And is this a good choice? [more inside]

Missing my ride

My non-pimped ride (1993 sedan, BB value: $825) was just totaled in an accident with a commercial truck (the truck driver's fault, and he was cited). Are there any ways to get the adjuster to value the car more highly than $825 so that I have any chance of replacing it? [more inside]

What should I do with the infomation I got from the person who hit my car and ran

A hit-and-run accident. I was in one today, after being rear-ended by the idiot. After the guy takes off onto a nearby freeway onramp, I follow him and he exits at the next offramp. He then runs a red light, sideswiping two cars in the process, and I lose him. [more inside] [more inside]

Car Accident Tragedy

Someone in my immediate family was involved in a car accident today on a highway, and he was in the wrong (though no alcohol or drugs were involved). Not only that, but the other driver was killed, and he is probably going to be charged. He is traumatized, extremely distressed, in a bad state mentally. My question is for advice from anyone who has dealt with this kind of situation.
