My Subaru Forester has a dent that looks like someone was tossed off a second floor balcony and landed on my hood. I have no idea about the dent. About $1500 to fix, as most likely needs a new hood. And windshield has crack near rearview mirror. No idea about that either. We live in the woods. Insurance paid for it under comprehensive. I said maybe it was a bear.

Does this count as an accident?

Depends on what you mean by accidents. I backed into a fire hydrant 3 years ago. Can hardly notice the indent in my bumper.

In my lifetime, once as a passenger.

In ~30yrs of licenced driving, 2 that required major body work.

2, neither were my fault. Each time, sitting at a traffic light, rear-ended by an inattentive driver. Both times I had my foot on the brake and still hit the car in front of me. Both times resulted in significant damage with crunched bumper, bed (or trunk the other time) and hood.

In my 41 years of driving I've had 4, 2 were my fault, first 3 were fender benders, but my Last one 18 years ago (12-10-2000) was my last and worst.
Accident was not not my fault, I was in the 87 Bronco II doing about 35 to 40 ( no air bag and no seat belt on) woman in the other car came right into my lane and I didn't have enough time to avoid her, I came out with a broken femur ,and soar all over,now have a rod in my leg, the woman I don't know how badly she was hurt but know she wasn't dead.
Spent about a week in the hospital and about 3 weeks in a rehab facility.
I now ride with a seat belt and headlights on.

These are police taken photos.The traffic lights in the photo are always green and are used as a crosswalk light only.

Wow! I think the lady in the Buick probably faired much better than you did!
I also think the considerable rust of the Bronco (as well as the seatbelt) were contributing factors to you injuries. eek

I've had two. One I was a passenger at the age of about 5, and the other when I was 20. That one I can admit I was at fault for. Nothing serious, but I totalled my 1990 Protégé. I was secretly happy, as I really despised that car. Bonus for me was when insurance paid me more for the car than I paid for it a month earlier.

Never bent metal with another car. Got my bumper thumped at a toll booth but no damage was done. I did back my olds silhouette over a stump at my in-laws' while turning around in their driveway. Perfect height, it slipped under the rear bumper and hit my shock absorber, bending its rod. Van rode real stiff on the way home. $28 later it was like it never even happened.

I've had two, not my fault. Got rear ended in both.

March of 2016, I was in the Camry when I got rear-ended making a right hand turn at an intersection. I had to stop for a woman crossing in the crosswalk and a truck clipped the corner. Totaled the Camry, still looks the same but I stuck a new tail light on it.

April of 2017 I was driving the Sonata on the freeway when traffic in my lane came to a stop. 2 more cars behind me stopped as well and a woman wasn't paying attention and plowed into the back of a car that pushed a car into another which bumped me. Was $2,450 to fix

Did that include your diminished value claim?
