I had an accidet at the end of July Basically I pulled out of a junction and a motorbike which was on my side of the road crashed into me . Frontal damage only on my car and it is now written off . He is now saying that I pulled out in front of him and its all my fault
There were no witnesses to the accident but there are two other bikers who saw him driving like a loon (their words) just before the accident .
The claim is now going into dispute which means I won't get anything for my car but I will have to buy a new car as the hire car will have to go back very soon .
Not only was it the scariest bit of driving ever and I am now a bit of a nervous wreck while out and about I am worried I am going to get hung drawn and quartered by insurance for something that was def not my fault .
The police came to the scene . To be fair the guy on the bike probably had a worse day than me he broke his collar bone and wrist but he was driving like a loon . They have got statements from the guys on the bikes but it just feels like it is going to drag on for ages and I am left feeling like a criminal for getting about my day .
I have only ever had one accident when someone crashed into the back of me when I was stationary (right sp or am I saying I am a paper product ? ) He got out the car said sorry and all was sorted very quickly . I stupidly thought this would be similar but obviously not .
Sorry no experience, hope it all does work out. TBH it sounds as though it will work in your favour, but will take time, which I appreciate is what's annoying you! My accident was someone going into the back of me, yes, usually I'd have been ranting and cursing but that would have been all. As it was DS was in the back and 5 weeks old The impact made him throw up. I have never been so scared! Yes, a pARked cAR is stationARy - that's how I remember it!
I am stupidly only third party and although I know they will probably pay up in the end , they won't pay anything until the case is completed .
The police didn't do any markings and also one of the kindly people that stopped to help moved my car so it was on the verge out of the way of traffic (I was naive and didn't think about that being a problem at the time )
I will only do fully comp from now on though for sure .
