Sad Sad Story...I Need a Body Shop!

This is a really sad story that I'm about to share. It happened today and I'm still really upset about it. I was driving south on Sepulveda near Wilshire and was stopped at a light. I was the second car from the front behind a BMW X3. The light turns green and the girl guns it, then slams her brakes on after 20 feet because she didn't realize the cars in front of her were stopped. I hit my brakes and skid into her rear bumper crumpling the front of my hood up and my front bumper in.

I am really depressed about it because I called my insurance company about it and my agent told me that unless she openly admits to fault or I can overwhelmingly prove it her fault then I'm going to be deemed at fault.

To make a long story short, I'm biting the bullet even though it was her fault. She says she was in a hurry due to being late to a math test and she wasn't paying attention but obviously she's not going to admit fault and I'm not even going to risk it because I have no witnesses.

Needless to say, I'm paying for it outta my own pocket and the purpose of this post is because I would like to know if any of you can recommend a body shop in the San Fernando Valley that you KNOW does excellent work.

Thanks for the help guys, I am hurtin baaad right now...

you were following to close. In colorado, if the front of you car hits the rear of another, it's your fault no matter what. Should have gave room between cars. Sounds like you must have hauled ass from the light too, but I dont know? Anyways, that sucks bro, good luck!
