last year in may i was in a car crash when some1 hit us from the rear and shunting us into a car in front of us.

now seen as it was a friends friends car and she was driving she got out and talkted to the women infront who we hit but there was no real damage to her car as we hit the rear wheel mounted to the door. but the front bumper n bonnet was damaged.

we stayed in the car as we were two big lads and didnt wanna intimidate the other drivers etc so she got the details of the car that hit us from behind and we drove off and basically went to each others homes...

so now here is the best bits so dannielle gives information to insurance and i get a call from a solicitior wanting to act on my behalf etc so i agree.. so the other girl accepts responcability and we think that thats it NOW the car comes back from the damage repair place more worse than it went and now the third party insurers are stating that this was a fraudulant claim!!! how on earth can this be a fraudulant claim when she clearly accepted responsability,

but we found out that this girl who hit hit has had 5 crashes b4 she hit us and she had a 3 other passengers in her car so now im thinking did she hit us on pourpose for the 3 passingers in her car to get cash n then share it out etc ive heard of crash for cash claims etc

but now im totally dishearterend by this and seriously wanting to not even continue with this as MY OWN representitives are say to me if this is a fake claim we can go to jail WTF!!!!!i was just a bloody passenger not the driver..... and if i do decide not to go ahead i may still be called to court as a witness but im gettting to stories from my lawyers
1 claiming that i will still have to pay there costs
and
2 saying that i will go to court as a witness..

now ive being thinking on this all night and do they say this as if they win they get alot of cash and will loose out if i stop my actions

so my question is has any1 ever had anything like this before as its really making me worry..

ive only being in 1 crash b4 when some guy hit us from the side and drove off

Without knowing the full details its hard to offer advise.

The girl who was driving the car you were in, should consult her legal cover department and let them offer advise.

Usually if you are hit by a crash for cash driver, you can still claim but the driver who hit you would be investigated and her claims kicked out by her insurer.

The only time it would cause an issue is if the driver behind was known to you.

get your friend who was driving your car to talk to her legal team.

It might be that the girl you were pushed into, her insurance company might be thinking you and the driver behind you caused the crash to both claim personal injury.

Get your friend to get her insurers legal department on the case and as you have done nothing wrong you should be ok.

Being hit by a fraudulent driver is not your fault. Your friends legal team will do there own investigation and can deal directly with the other insurers solicitors.

Its not worth losing sleep over mate..

Its like watching godzilla vs king kong and your an inncocent japanese man watching the carnage.. just let the solicitors argue it out ;)

no problem mate and its not up to you to sort out legal issues or fraud claims.

Plus if you did go to jail with your looks, you would be someones ***** in no time, so we want to avoid that ;)

Again you clearly have a clear conscious on this and have nothing to worry about. Can understand why it grinds you down though..

If you need anymore advise drop me a PM anytime :)

this kinda crap makes me want to fit cameras on every bloody corner of the car so there's no get out cause for anyone should they hit.. is there a system that does such a thing? ie: 8 bullet cameras that send footage of the last minute to a black box recorder in the car?

we can go to jail WTF!!!!!
Ahh you have nothing to worry about, in fact... I'm sure you'll love it in there!
Think of the money you could make pimping yourself out in jail... when you get out you would have spending money for some therapy and mods to the car




Be a giver, not a taker because....

Pred, insurance, claims departments and solicitors will send all kinds of frighting letters to get you to admit or action stuff more quickly.

Never let solicitors bully you or make you worry.

Just explain that you were in a friends car that was hit by a lady who has been investigated for putting in a possible fraud claim, case closed.

Polietly remind them that its there job to investigate this issues and that you and the lady in front were innocent parties in this.

As I said you will be fine and its not worth letting it get to you :)

+1 - holiday for family.

as Dan says DONT let them bully you into admitting something not your fault - they aren't gods - they're just trying to action stuff quicker and get the case closed so they can move onto next one.
yeah i know just found out that the lass who hit us from behind has had 5 crashes so im guessing that she did this on pourpose to get money for her passengers etc,

but ive being to florida back in 2000 but my daughter was looking at disneyland on youtube today so i think i may treat her and the gf as i wanna go back now and see all the new sights....

Sorry Pred, I wasn't trying to have a go.... I was trying to be light hearted about the situation. You're not going to jail, it just won't happen in this situation. The truth will come though and uncover the b/s that's been going on.

Also, I vote for Florida too. A family holiday is the best value for money out of all the options :)
