We owe $30k,
Tell your wife to get medical attention Pronto. Do not wait.I was rear-ended once and felt I was ok. I called the other driver's insurance company to get an estimate and they told me to bring the car in any day mon-fri between the hous of 9-5. I told them that in order for me to do that, I'd have to take time off work so I needed them to come to me or give me a weekend appointment. They said no can do. Well, fuck them...I went to a Dr. and a lawyer same day. It ended up costing them about $5-6 grand more than needed. Assholes.

Also reference Kelly Blue Book.
WineHorror1 saysI'd have to take time off work so I needed them to come to me or give me a weekend appointment. They said no can do.That's ridiculous. Every insurance company should have a field adjuster who can come out and inspect the vehicle.

Drop it off at a trusted bodyshop and let them deal with adjusters and such crap.
They now do inspections via video on phone. We had a wreck half a year ago and it was quite convenient for us.
Any tips or experiences would be appreciated.
Negotiate for replacement value. Prepare comps. Insist on being made whole, i.e. getting enough dough to go out and buy an equivalent truck from a used car dealer.
Either way I want a damn car. One car life sucks
WookieMan saysWe owe $30k,The silver lining: congratulations on being able to get out from under that debt.
If you don't have uninsured motorist coverage, add it, it's cheap and worth it if there's a loss.
And yes, she did go to the chiropractor and has had multiple massages.
print out all of your service history from the last 3 years or so.
Behave friendly and professionally with the adjuster
input the info into Carvana, Vroom, etc as if it were not wrecked to see what the offers for it would be.
Whiplash is a MAJOR ticking time bomb. If it was bad enough to total the car, you should get her an MRI ASAP. Brain injuries manifest over several days, and by the time she's feeling bad, the damage has already been done. If the brain is injured, it swells, but there's nowhere for it to go, so it squeezes itself against the inside of the skull until blood flow is cut off and grey matter starts dying. She needs anti-inflammatory medication ASAP if she's brain-injured.
