that sucks!

and about the airbags..If the impact is not hard enough they wont deploy. My father had a head on crash at 45MPH in his silverado and they didnt go off...all he had was minimal fender damage and the other (toyota) Was Totaled!

That pisses me off when people don't have insurance. I don't think a lawsuit is in order in this situation unless maybe it's against the other driver.

damn thats a b!tch hope you called the cops. Airbag sensors are in the front of the truck so unless you hit in the front too a rear end collision would not likely trigger them to deploy. Good thing you alright tho. Trucks can be replaced, people on the other hand can't.

Report it to your insurance and they will sue the driver personally if they dont have insurance.

I'm am going to assume that you called the cops when you got in the accident. If the cops were on scene then if the guy was intoxicated they would have investigated that and it would be in the police report.

I agree with this statement, and your insurance company will pay to fix your vehicle and go after him for the charges, and I don't know anyone who doesn't have uninsured motorist protection, did you? I sure hope so!
