Minor car accident

Today I was involved in an accident at the carpark. Slight bump to car in front. No visible damage to both vehicle. Even if have, can be Polish away kind. Car owner message me after that telling me her car is a new car and she will send her vehicle to ad to do full check up. Advice on what should I do?

Not all AD do accident claims. Their focus is on repairs. Whether u are the banger or bangee is not important. Pay for it first and go elsewhere to claim. I am sure you know how long it takes to collect insurance money. Employees at luxury car AD collecting fixed pay have no incentive at all, unlike taxi coy, rental coy and outside workshops.

The fastest way to make a claim would be to send to outside workshops who are authorized by IDAC, and got their own network of doctors and lawyers. If she knows anything at all, this is the first place to go, not AD. Go there and they can advise whether 50/50 or 100%. If sure win, they will take u on, and start the creative story telling process while filling up the IDAC report.

I kena 50/50 case similar to this. (side swipe, he tried to squeeze pass me but failed.)

end up my liability for 5 figure sum just becos his car was slightly in front of mine when taking photo. (he claim is I hit him)

I hope you got take photo of the damage.

nothing much you can do, if insurance arbitration determine liability fall to you. Insurance lawyer will tell you to pay for your own lawyer fee and court fee if you disagree with them or want to fight it out. They actually have this whole book of car accidents and positions to base the liability on.

if open court case, the claim amount will be lodged in your CBS report as potential liability and might affect ur CBS score until the court case is settled.

next time in carpark dun tailgate so close.
