And it fell on my car.....=my poor Evo

I was driving towards a friends place to pick up some parts to work on the safety for my vehicle.

Driving down John Angus and there is construction....so I'm driving like 30 behind 2 other vehicles.
Next thing a sign falls on the right side of my car and gets dragged across the car.

I yell out WTF and 2 construction guys ahead of me look. I get out and check the damages.
1 guy comes up to me and asks what happened.
I just explained that I was just driving and the sign fell.

I then asked for a on site supervisor. The guy said he was the foreman of the company. I told him I will talk to him once I pull my car over to the side.
I go ahead and park it and then make my way back to him, he gets one of his guys to take pics of my car and fill out paper work. I check out what he wrote and added what else was done.

I am also currently on a temp permit but at full coverage. Deduct is 500.
All the damages were done on the right side of the car. It shows in all black.

The foreman did say something though while I was looking at the car.
He said "It's just strange, your car is so immaculate and then there's just this that happens...I don't understand."
I looked at him and said that I don't either. And yeah this did just happen and it's ****ty.

So I made the call and made an appointment which is in 2 days so that's not so bad. They asked if I thought it may have been the companies neglagence. I did say yes, due to the sign being only held with 1 sandbag.

A possibility was the car in front may have ran over the base of the sign and made it sway. Making it eventually fall.

But its a case Sublication...subligation claim right now...where I pay for repairs(deduct) and then they work on getting the claim from the company. So that kind of sucks.

                Dude that suuucks! I wish you and your Evo a quick and painless recovery.

                Would be cool if you could keep us in the loop of how this all resolves.

                  That's why I always get the 200 deductible temp. Never know. Sucks having to fork out 500$

                    Situation sucks for such a mint car.

                    But it infuriates me when people talk like that;  Life happens, wind happens, gravity happens.  There's not much to not understand.

                      What was the outcome, and what company?
                      1 sand bag definitely isn't enough for a sign, especially when they usually put it on the wrong side.

                        So what happened in the end.
                        With the 500 deductible. Going through the claim wasn't worth it. Most of that stuff actually rubbed right off.
                        So I just said F it.

                        I'll get the company name later, it's in my organizer in the car.
