    • Small attachment to an iPhone that cost £288.00.   I know anything that relates to Apple can be very expensive, but what was the attachment ?   Did you return the attachment product in its original packaging ?   How often do you buy products from Amazon ?   How often do you return products to Amazon ?   Could Amazon believe you are buying products to simply try out for a period, with no intention of keeping the products ?
    • So I make a post and ask you some questions and you then go in and make a response which deals with something completely different and which ignores the questions which I have asked completely. I don't see how we can move forward on that basis
    • Thank you. First of all, this is not chronology so we don't have any sense of the timeline. It's still rather complicated – but maybe when you produce a chronology it will come more into focus. However, there are a few things that we can start to tease out. You say that you accepted £250 in an offer which was intended to reflect distress. Although you say that you accepted this offer mistakenly, it may well be that you have no further rights on this issue because of course it would have been up to you to understand the situation properly before accepting any kind of financial offer. However, it would be useful to understand the reach of this offer and so please could you post up the offer letter by uploading it in PDF format. You say that "high-volume messaging" is not explicitly covered in the terms and conditions – but there may be references to "fair use policy" and it may be an interpretive problem rather than looking for words which specifically match your situation. So it will be helpful to know what words Vodafone were relying upon and also what was the extent of your high-volume messaging. Did they give you any warnings. You say that they referred to terms and conditions which you did not sign. However, it isn't necessary to sign terms and conditions. We would have to understand more about the context – but generally speaking if there is an agreement which refers to terms and conditions from the outset and you then embark upon the agreement and use the services, then all the signs would be that you've accepted the conditions of use. Signed written terms and conditions are generally speaking only required in contracts for property or copyright or shares. You say that the contract was put in your sole name despite the fact that the company name was on the agreement. We don't have a chronology so we don't see how long this went on for and you don't explain why you didn't raise any objections to this – or maybe you did? You say that you have sent Vodafone and Lowell an SAR but "so far" you are waiting for a response. This suggests that you sent the SAR some time ago – but you haven't told us anything about when this might have happened. You are referring to obligations under the Consumer Rights Act but I'm afraid that these obligations refer to contracts between a trader and a consumer – and you are not trading as a consumer so these probably wouldn't apply to you. Finally, you are worried about expressing a claim in legal language. If you begin a small claim then you certainly don't need any legal language – and in fact that kind of approach simply gets in the way. Also, it seems to me that you are gearing up to bring a court claim – which is fine, in my book – but you haven't identified your cause or causes of action and you don't have a plan. I think we need to slow down and have a more careful and methodical look at the situation. Otherwise you're simply going to find yourself in trouble
    • Late to this, sorry - my wife claims contributory ESA and got her P60 about two weeks ago. Now I know she's overpaid on her tax and I'm just waiting for HMRC (the department I currently work for) to figure it out. They owe her about £150.

Disputing liability

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Looking for a little advise. Had a minor accident after my passenger opened my car do into a passing car in a retail park car parking bay. It was the type of bay that has 2 rows of cars adjacent to each other (as in the example picture). I had reversed into my spot and there was a car parked behind me. To either side of me there were no cars and either side of the car behind there were no cars. Turned the engine off and my passenger went to get out of the car just as another car was using the bays to cut through to the exit. Obviously they drove into the side of my door. Luckily no damage to my car and minor damage to the other car front bumper. I've drawn a red arrow on the example picture to show the type of manuveur they did.

 

However, my insurance company are saying I'm liable, but my argument is that the other driver shouldn't have been using the bays as a cut through, coming through the bays behind to pass by my passenger side. Would anyone else think that I would be liable for that? If I'm honest, I can see the argument that my passenger should have checked, but seconds earlier there were no other parked cars around me except the one directly behind, and my passenger didn't expect someone to cut through.

I agree with you completely – that the party space should not been used for a cut through. I think this is well understood. However, there is clearly going to be a lot of focus upon the actions of your passenger and whether they look sufficiently. You say that the damage is very minor – how much is it?

Whatever happens, you are going to happen to pay your excess. The other drivers don't have to pay their excess. Both of you will have to log it with your respective insurers – and both insurance companies are going to jack the price up next time.

If it really is minor then I think you are on a hiding to nothing and you had probably better let it pass. Very unsatisfactory – and very frustrating. Of course if you wanted to make an issue of it then I suppose you could try bringing a legal action against the other driver but I doubt with it will be easy – but it's up to you. We are happy to help – but what's the value of it all?

Excess I can handle, even a bit of a premium increase. It's the loss of no claims I'm more bothered about. Would have like to have resolved it outside of insurance but there was a dispute on who was liable. As my insurance company deem me liable, I'll bear the brunt of the claim even though the value is only a few hundred pounds, if that.

 

I don't think my passenger did look behind them, only to the side of them...an empty parking bay. If I was parked at the side of the road and they did it, then fair enough, but it's because it was in a parking bay that I didn't accept liability. 

Unfortunately the other car was a Jaguar rather than a clapped out banger. Damage to Jag is minor though (red car) and almost non-existent on mine (silver car), so much so that I am not claiming any repairs.

Although a parking space is not a cut through, it is always possible that a vehicle may be moving and therefore anyone opening a car door should be taking care by checking  before they open the door.  

 

So I would say that your Insurers are correct in treating this as a fault claim.  You could inquire with your Insurers, whether they would allow you to pay them the claim value, in return for your no claims discount not being reduced.


We could do with some help from you.
