    I've just had an accident in my brand new car. It's my own fault, I pulled out without checking first. There's !Removed! all over seats now.

    A Staples truck ploughed into my car me last week, giving me severe whiplash and leaving my motor totally written off. Now, to add insult to injury it looks like I'm going to be held responsible for the accident despite the fact he drove into the back of me. The woman I spoke to at my insurance company said that there's a clause in the smallprint on my policy that says that I'll be held liable for any crash with a stationery vehicle.
