Dear customer, where there has been an accident or some form of road incident, which rustled in vehicle damage, the party at fault will be subject to the circumstances of the incident itself. As example, a rear-end accident between vehicles is generally the rear vehicle at fault, unless there are special circumstances that negate that matter. There are various circumstances which creates a party to be at fault, and this will always be based on the surrounding facts of the matter.

If you would like to discuss the incident further by telephone, I welcome you to request those services.

If you have any further questions, I would be pleased to answer those for you.

Kind regards
John Melis
