I had a car accident back in January, a van went though a red light and I drove into the side of him. Well we had no witnesses and my insurance company said we would have to go 50/50 on the claim.
Well that was near a month ago, now out of the blue the other drive has got a witness, (I smell a rat)
Well I have a copy of his statement and all the way thought the statement to said he could clearly see my car and there were no obstructions,he said he saw the accident happen. I had a very large white transit van next to at the time of the accident so he must have xray vision. He also said he saw my whole bumper come of my car, my bumper didn't come of my car, and the funniest thing is he said the driver was male.
Well I have written a letter in reply pointing out all the faults with his statement. Let see what happens now.

I would have thought that the police investigating the accident could have determined if the other driver ran the red light or not. And if you had a van beside you how did the driver of it not see the accident?

Police don't get involved here unless it is really bad, the van driver drove of before I could get any details.

I think she means there were two vans, one she hit and another that just drove off.

It makes me so angry when people lie and make out they weren't at fault :furious:

Hope you get it sorted lozzy, though I expect it will take a very long time :hug2:
