This. Getting rear-ended is never fun...and if there's one thing I learned from my relatively minor accident, if you feel any slight discomfort, get it checked. I'm gonna need shoulder surgery now (almost a year and a half later) because I didn't get a slight twitch checked out.

Glad you're okay, hopefully you get your car repaired

If I win this massive lottery tonight, I'm sending you a check for the repair

Texting and driving is a terrible thing. Thankfully you weren't hurt.

Honestly, I would rent a car now. Don't miss work, unless you are injured and make the insurance company reimburse you for the rental. But I'm no lawyer, or really anyone with decent judgement and a sound mind, so take it with a grain of salt... I have however been hit before and I have found insurance companies are more than willing to do something like that as opposed to a long drawn out law suit over damages that may or may not have occurred.

How's the roof? If that shows any signs of being damaged, your car is probably totaled.

Glad to hear you weren't seriously injured. Your insurance should have a part about rental cars.
