What sucks more than having a 90 day evaluation, moving into a new home, and planning a wedding? Add a car accident on top of that and you’ve got yourself in a sticky situation.

This morning on my way to work, I got into a car accident on the freeway. Long story that I don’t feel like getting into but from what I know, 3 cars were involved. No one was seriously injured but I’m writing this from a heating/vibrating chair, took a muscle relaxer and ibuprofin. My back is hurting.

How much was the damage? $1,600 worth. Thanks to our ridiculously high deductible of $1,000 (don’t ask), I have to come up with a good bulk of that. Thankfully my mom is going to be helping out but there’s definitely some things that we’re going to have to move around as far as money. No money had to come out of pocket, besides using my credit card for a rental car. My car won’t be ready for 5-7 days, so that gives me some time to get finances in order.

This absolutely sucks. What a way to start the new year. I just got my car fixed with just about all the fixings for $1,500 on Thanksgiving weekend. That’s all on a Goodyear car. Now I have to come up with another $1,000? I love my car but this is too much. And I’m going to have to look for another car soon due to my mom’s finances.

Have you been in a car accident? What was the damage and how far did it set you back financially?
