    Default I can't Believe it!!!! Not happy now lol

    Well got a letter today saying that my car crash on the 31.10.11 when a young lad rear ended me at some traffic lights the lad has denied that he knows anything about it

    Come on you must be joking me i think i know what it is though he's on his parents insurance so i think he hasn't got the balls to tell them as it didn't do any damage to his car but still not happy about it having to drag it out like this it's stupid!

    On a plus side had the car fixed and ive had my rear parking sensors finally fitted today shame im at work till 10pm and cant see them lol

    My dad had similar a few years back, but the actual guy that rear ended him, flashed him out of a junction, then wasnt looking and ran into the back of him!!!

    Stuffed the rear bumper, acepted liability, insurance all went through, booked in at bodyshop, then the guy said he "didnt cause that much damage"....Dildo!

    no to be fair i didnt see any to start with then i got home and just noticed a couple of chips near the number plate.

    He said he only took his eyes off the road for a second which to me is admitting it.

    The thing thats bothering me the most is that my brother works in a body shop so hel could of fixed it for nothing but no coz i thought its not my fault ill do it right and go through my insurance and now im down £250 excess and my insurance is due next month so thatll go up aswell.

    Great stuff lol

    in this day and age of technology ,

    compared to days of past ,

    we can now use our cellular telephones to take photographs ,

    so the cars in question cannot be disputed ( unless it has false plates )

    and if your lucky , maybe a picture of the third party too .

    i took pics of my Sainsbury's incident , of the damage to both vehicles , but unfortunately forgot to photo the others vehicles number plate .

    I would of took pics at the time but my wife was in the car crying at the time with having stomach pains as she was 3months pregant at the time so that took over from taking someones picture.

    Or was that still the wrong thing to do?

    Quite obviously when something like this happens preserving life takes precedence over a "minor" accident ... But in the same time as there were "potential" life threatening injuries you should have also reported the matter to the police

    I hope you manage to recoup your losses

    As your wife was in the car technically you have a witness. Get your wife to provide a statement to your insurance company. Also if you have legal protection cover they may be able to help you.

    Ive got another witness anyway someone that was behind him in the car who is giving a statement.

    Ive got legal cover which has been passed onto the Co-operative legal services which as i work for another part of the Co-operative group and a staff member i get up to £100,000 free legal aid so they say i dont really know much about all the legal side of things lol
