hi,jo..we need to know where we stand on this,legaly..ie,can we be taken to court and forced to pay for repairs to a car that was caused by an act of nature and she seems unwilling to seek her insurance to pay any bill.also,the bill seems outrageous anyway.how on earth can a gust of wind wreck acar door,i wonder..both her and her partner have just appeared on our doorstep demanding we pay her bill or she will go to small claims copurt ect plus be confrontational at work..
not aware of how much,jo..she thrust a folded bill in her hand but didn't go into detail of alledged damage.my partner says as the door got caught by the wind and flung open,she heard a noise of some sort from the hinges..?..did you want me to contact the woman concerned to request detail?
hello..?..are you no longer there,jo?
hi,jo...are you saying that my partner is liable for the whole cost?..the fact that the wind pulled the door from her hand isn't negligence on her part,surely?would a modern car door be destroyed by a passing strong wind...if the woman involved takes it to court,can you say how long a small claims would take to set up..?the womans aggressive harassment,both by her and her lesbian partner,of my partner at work and now at our home will NOT be tolerated..confused by all this..can we offer a partial payment..?
hi,jo..sorry for the delay in answering further,work commitments..i have just returned home to find a county court claim form on the doorstep.in it,the other woman is claiming all the excess of the repair to her car door plus costs(£125).in this way,she avoids apying anything at all herself for what was a complete accident caused by nature..also,if we do settle the amount,is it true what you mentioned before that the insurance will then sue my partner for the whole amount because we having accepted ALL responsibility by paying the excess..?
