teater - same thing happened to me and I had awesome insurance, but trying to recover the $1000.00 deductible was fruitless, even though allstate said they would subrogate the claim against the uninsured. legal processes are certainly frustrating, and I blame myself for not nipping on the heels of the douchy driver out there. so my response to your daughter's plight would be keep fanning the flames of the legal process, because when the embers die, the fire is forgotten. I am glad that the guilty driver in your case still gets to keep his vehicle, and he should be reminded to pay up the costs he is responsible for. sounds like the embers are dead in your case, but it's not too late to complain to wyco sheriff about injustice, illegal seizure, and the senseless killing of buzzes at rosedale park. silence in this case is not owning up to the gas, and soon the methane will permeate all that you wear and you will never acknowledge the stench.
