Could anyone give me a bit of advice reguarding an accident I had about 3 weeks ago.
The gentleman that I had an accident with was prepared to let me repair his car without going through the insurance ( just built it up to 6 yrs NCB and dont want to lose this) The damage to his car was not extensive, new drivers side light, bumper and a bit of panel damage - you should see mine - put it this way ALOT of damage. I repaired his car and i made him sign a document that basuically stated that he was happy with the repairs to the car and we discussed that i would reinburst him some of the expense that he incurred as a result of this accident. Now two days after i repaired his car he phoned me and told me that the passangers side rear lights were not working and wanted me to repair this side as well. I told him that that was not the side I hit and was nothing to do with me, I told him to calculate his expenses and I would pay him, he became very aggresive with me and then he put the phone down.
Now yesterday I recieved a letter from him together with a bill for £62 for the passanger side light and some wiring and bulbs and a request for £15 for his expences bringing the total to £77 on top of th e £300 I paid to have his car repaired.
Now what do I do ? I am prepared to give him the £15 but not the other amount, what I want to now is that can he still go to the insurers because he threatened to do so on the phone - or is he trying to squeeze me for more money ?
Any advice app
