Hi my name is Branden and i was recently working with uber up until a week ago I got into an accident that damaged my car to the point that I cant drive for uber.
Uber was my only source of income and transportation for my family. I'm unable to drive with the current damage to the car. I was cut off on the freeway by a lady who was on the phone and didnt see me! Now my fender rubs against the tire and i cannot drive it like that.
I will not be able to pay my bills and rent.

First, sorry that happened!

Secondly, I'm confused - Did she not have insurance or was it a hit and run? Do you have collision coverage - this should be covered under your policy?

1 Post and UBER Fam? I am sorry for your loss, but if you came to this forum long ago --> you would know the UBER/INSURANCE situation. Many drivers are playing Russian Roulette driving for UBER! Live and learn!

What do you expect from us? Donation to your go fund me? We're a bit too sceptical here. Not to mention we're also broke drivers

Sorry to hear of your loss but when I found myself on the verge of being broke I accepted a job offer in Iraq, where I spent two years. And you appear to be a lot younger than I was.........................

I tell you what, I wouldn't care how broke I am... If someone at UP who I see helps other drivers every day the best they can and has earned respect ---> I would DONATE in a HEART BEAT if needed! 1 post ---> = No RESPECT earned: sorry IMO!

Hmm..... I see door damage, but no picture showing a fender in contact with a tire. So go to her insurance company or your own insurance company, and get it fixed. BTW, it's collision coverage, not comprehensive. Comp would pay if a tree fell on your car, for instance.

It was intended as - do you have full coverage - i.e. comprehensive as all encompassing...but, hey..I updated since not everyone uses the same terms in the same way.

Used to sell fire and casualty insurance, (nearly fifty years ago) so I was speaking from that position. We were told that technically, "full coverage" wasn't available, because that would indicate coverage with no limits or deductibles. But you are correct, the terms vary depending on where you live and what insurer you might be using. Bottom line, the OP's accident should be covered.:p

Lol, is this post serious? You don't even show damage in the area that you are describing, man? Secondly, you don't even post the donate link...just screenshots.

On top of that, from where that damage is located, it looks more like YOU were the one cutting someone off and paid the price for it. Why do I say this? Look at the door handle, that damage is located more towards the back of the car. Furthermore, the panel close to the rear tires are damaged. That only happens when you hit something from the side...like when you try to overtake somebody and failed. In your scenario, if she tried to overtake you and failed, it would simply not be possible from that damage location. You would have to be IN FRONT of her and CLEARLY VISIBLE for her bumper to cause damage in that manner.

We weren't born yesterday. Drive smarter, don't be an idiot.

Fender doesnt look that bad. That front door is screwed.
Take fender off.fold blanket 4layers thick.place fender on blanket on cement,hammer untill fender no longer rubs.
Might try a pipe wrench on that door skin corner to bend out untill it seals.
Try to drive nights untill you can afford replacement panels at junk yard.
You any good with bondo and spray paint ?
