Hmmm, ic. Seems like appointing a lawyer always helps, i mean it definitely wouldn't have been possible without the lawyer's professional help.
Keep us posted brother. Goodluck.

Shishir, thats a bad one, good that you guys are safe!

am sure anyone who goes thruousg such event a big scar(mind) is left behind by the event. i hope you over come it too soon.

The car is for sure your Savior but am not sure rebuilding will make sense? i guess if you do that make sure its just for city drive.

Thanks Lohith. My mind already out of this event. I am not rebuilding this. I have given this to a mechanic who used to service this car from 10years and he will make this car road worthiness and he will use it for his daily commute. From this, my car will atleast stay alive rather than die in a scrap yard or as a donor.

Bro you need to take care of yourself.I mean complete rest, without much movements. Only then will your limb be healed completely. And the more you move, the longer it will take to heal. Get well soon bro, and take it easy, time heals everything, but for that one needs to give time to oneself. From the image it seems it will take some more time to heal. What did the doctor say?

Thanks Johnny.He paid 20K and told that he will use the old parts and drive himself. If I take the car then he needs to put new parts and it will be 70-80K. So I left with him only. Once in a while I can see it.

My friends Matiz had its started motor kaput. I asked him to check in Nanapeth here in Pune, he got an old Matiz's starter for about 1200 bucks, got it fitted by his mechanic and its working fine. I dont know the exact shop's name but I'll speak to my friend and get the details. I am sure everything is available including A/c compressors, coils, dashboard and steering wheels, doors, other parts. The whole Matiz is available for 25K, buy one and use it as a donor vehicle even if it does not start, who cares. You should get your own Matiz sorted.

The A Pillar and other chassis damages can be rebuilt in the workshop, welding will not have the strenght it previously had but at least your car will be preserved. I do not expect you to drive it into the highway like that again in that car. Once it is completely repaired, you can safely use it in the city. Best of luck for your hand though.
