yes, you could be racked up in a hospital on life support and lose everything you have worked your entire life for because you cannot pay the medical bills. 

Hopefully your insurance will take care of the car ... and the ticket too ... your premium may likely be increased.  At least you can still work and earn an income to pay for it.  

May your days ahead be better.

It is only a car - it could have been far worse!  But, I know the frustration of getting a ticket afterwards too:  When I was 21, I was issued a ticket for "failing to avoid an accident" after a 16 year old kid ran a red light and totaled my Datsun 240z !!

It is an extreme hassle which requires bumming rides, getting a rental car or staying home. The hit to the pocketbook even with good insurance stings.

The last time, the other driver got the ticket.  She was yapping on her cell phone and tried to make a left turn from the right land.  I stopped her.  It wasn't pretty, but if I'd gotten a ticket I would have been pretty irate!

On my way to the meetup in Malibu my car got rear ended the same way.  By back is screwed, I can hardly walk any distance or stand for a long length of time w/o it seizing up.  My neck isn't doing too good either!  Been working with a physical therapist and a doctor for the last month or more.  Very slow go.
