Morning Alex

JACUSTOMER-0vu7v893- :

Yes it was my car and the police are charging me with being the driver

Alex Watts : We're You a passenger ?
JACUSTOMER-0vu7v893- :

I have no recollection of being the driver as far as I was concerned I was at home at the time of the accident. The police have since charged me with being the driver at the time due to forensic evidence in the car. I carry full comp Insurance and they have already paid out for the damage to my car. Where do I stand with my Insurance and could I be liable due to being charged ?

Alex Watts :

Was anyone else a witness that you were at home?

Alex Watts :

Did they find any of your paint on the other car if there was one, or at the scene with no car?

I have recollection of being the driver I have pleaded not guilty throughout I don't want to get bogged down in the details again. the bot***** *****ne is I have been found guilty by trail. I have always told the Insurance company that the driver is unknown as I believe that I was not the driver. Can you please advise where stand with the insurance company ?

Sadly you would need to ask a new question for that.
