I had an accident at a VERY slow speed (about 5mph) in my local petrol station. I was reversing into a petrol pump place, and a black taxi drove forward into me. No damage to either vehicle, but the cab driver is claiming personal injury. This smells to me, and I think he's a fraudster. my insurance co say it's my fault - I would argue it's 50/50 as he should have seen my reversing lights and stopped moving forward. I exchanged numbers with the driver he only told me it wasn't his cab, but he was a friend of the owner of it. He gave me his name, but i didn't get ID from him. How do I know the person who's claiming is the actuial person who drove into me? Maybe this guy wasn't insured to drive the car? Also, I noticed the back bumper of the taxi was hanging down, and was secured by a seat belt tied round it. Don't taxis have to conform to strict legal obligations as to the state of the cab - was this cab roadworthy in this condition? I've asked my insurance for a copy of the driving license photo of the claimant to make sure it's the same guy, but they have refused to provide it. Any advice?
stayed in a decent 4 star hotel with my wife. I woke up to find my leg covered in bed bug bites.They definitely weren't there before! My wife was not bitten I complained to the hotel, who say they got a company in to check for bugs.They've come back to me and said the company found nothing. I don't accept this at all. I think they're denying it as they know if they admit it it would look very bad. I want a full refund on the room cost.Are there any other amounts I can claim? As they won't voluntarily refund, is it worth suing them? I'm familiar with county court proceedings, and feel I have a cast iron case (i have photos of the bites).
Land rover main dealer had my car to do a service.They were supposed to have it overnight, but heard nothing from them the following day.I tried calling them but couldn't get through to anyone. Now I know why..spoke to them today and they admitted they had an accident in it. They never informed of this, so I don't know what damage was or how it happened.They say they've nearly repaired it. obviously they have waived service fee, but I must be due to compensation as: 1. I didn't have use of my car for a lost a week, and lost work as I coudln't attend my customers. 2.they have been negligent with my car, and didn't inform me ( I may have wanted to get it repaired at my own garage) what do i do?
