Had an incident last week when at local hospital. I reversed out of my parking space obviously checking mirrors and blind spots, as I was completing my reverse manoover I checked the front end of my car to see a woman reversing out of a space on the opposite side of the car park heading straight towards my car
I was stationary at this point, went for my horn and only managed a quick beep as she reversed into the side of my car.
We exchanged details, however she kept saying it's knock for knock (i didn't have a clue what this meant). She actually said to me "I didn't see you!" told me to sit in her car and look, which i did, but i could see my car from her mirrors! There was no damage to the back of her car, but on my car she has damaged both doors on the drivers side (due to the position of where she hit me). She said to get some quotes and was happy to contribute to the cost of repairs.
Anyway the cost of repairs is £500+ therefore she has said it best go through the insurance. I am only 3rd party, fire and theft and have spoken to my insurance company today. She will not admitt full liability therefore I am unable to claim for the damage to my car. I said that I don't want to claim from my company and that her insurance should pay. As there are no witnesses it's my word against hers. She's saying that we reversed at same time and we both should have seen each other, (BUT I DID SEE HER!!!
What should i do now??
