Hey guys - First off everyone is safe.

To sum up what happened:
Around four days ago; A woman in her mid 20's was drinking and driving with her friends. She was going around 80mph the wrong way on a one way street. I was just about to make a turn from an intersection and the rest is all history. Her car ran into a Papa John's and completely destroyed it.

(Article: http://www.ksdk.com/news/article/343...ntown-pizzeria)
--

But yeah I had a couple of questions hoping you guys could help me out with maybe some of your own experiences or what you've heard.

This 2010 m3's lease is actually up in January (really soon) and actually wanted to buy it out.. (only had 14k miles).

What happens to the lease contract? Does it get terminated or does BMW give you another car somehow (lol idk)?

If the lease contract is terminated will I get my security deposit back or down payment?

Also, will I have to pay state taxes, title, reg, and the inception fee for a new lease?

Will any of this matter to BMW that the accident was not my fault?


Any help is appreciated!

Here's a pic:

It all has to be settled by the insurance companies. Since this was clearly her fault, her insurance should settle with you and with the bank that still owns the car. I am pretty sure you will not be liable for any costs or payments.

My guess is that lease will be terminated. If you want another car, it will be like starting a new lease.

car is written off so you would start a new. You should never, ever put money down on a lease anyways as it is a loss, so I wouldn't expect you to recoup you down payment; you should recoup the security as the car was totaled.

Glad your ok, sounds like a mess

Yeah everyone is surprisingly okay. My friends and I have a concussion, scratches and bruises all over. She was just crying profusely on the sidewalk before the EMTs and paramedics took her away; on a side note though she had a couple of friends in the car too and they RAN away (so I don't know about them - I guess they were drunk too and didn't want to be apart of that situation)!

Take Yolkster's advice.

Yolkster is 100% correct. Many times, certain types of spinal injuries show up weeks later and will be attributed to the car wreck. Money spent now will be money saved later!

It should not cost the OP any money, Personal injury lawyers work off a contingency (standard is 33.3%) and his medical will be picked up by the other party's insurance company or PIP.

This lady's negligence and drunk driving caused damage, injury and pain/suffering to the OP and his pasengers so they will definitly be compensated for that. He has an excellent case.

"certain types of spinal injuries show up weeks later and will be attributed to the car wreck."

Great to know!! This has intrigued me ten fold. I felt bad for her crying and didn't care for suing her for money (she did probably 200k+ of damages in a matter of 5 seconds), but this is a different story.

Yolkster; Thank you for this information. I know it seems adolescent to not know about these things, but I have never been in a major car accident before. I am in the process now of contacting a personal injury lawyer!

Consider yourself lucky...unfortunately I have been through this..get with a lawyer ASAP and make sure you seek treatment for your injuries (your lawyer will be able to guide you through the process)

Good luck

First off OP glad to hear you are ok.

Totally agree on Lawyering up for this one. Though like mentioned the car will be written off and your lease agreement terminated but you will loose you down payment. I speak from expericence as I had a car totaled a long time ago, and althought the insurrance companies handled everything I lost the 5k I had put as a down payment.

You need to do everything in your power to ruin her life. She could have killed half a dozen or more people.

Sincerely hope you're all doing well and glad to see your car provided the protection you and your passengers needed to walk away from it.

Since your car appears totaled, once the insurance company determines fault, they will likely settle your lease with BMW.

OP, I'm glad you and everyone else are okay. That could have had a much different ending if she had t-boned you instead. I'll add to the "get an attorney" chorus, you will be feeling this later!

get a lawyer bro ...not the tv injury lawyers...like a ligit one that you will pay a set fee versus a large % of what u win..

glad you guys are all okay...

its not like she was sober and went thru a yellow light and hit u at 10 mph...

80 mph in wrong direction... thats plain negligence and personally.. i would press criminal charges against her to (which im pretty sure u can do)
