Sorry I pressed the wrong button, lol., we live in Pakenham
Hi Pearl, sorry I pressed the wrong button, lol. My name is ***** ***** live in Pakenham 3810, Victoria. My son was involved in an accident before xmas on the 19th Dec. The weather was bad and a car up ahead cut another car off which made everyone brake all of a sudden, Luke had space between him and the car in front but the car behind him was not going to stop in time and tried to swerve to miss him but still hit Luke and pushed him into the car in front. The person that hit him took off and he of course in the situation did not get a number plate reading. The lady that he hit said to him that she saw the car push him into her, so there is one witness, another 2 people also pulled over to say that they saw the car push him into the car in front, but no one got the number plate. Luke knowing he had no insurance did the right thing and got out of his car to help the lady, and he was also worried about the children in the back. They were all alright, he exchanged details, he also came straight home and then went to the police station to let them know what happened. The insurance company Aami contacted the witnesses and down the track they called Luke and told him that they had spoken to the witnesses and that everything should be fine. App 3 months later he starts getting phone calls from Aami asking him to pay them money for the damage of the other vehicle. If the person that he hit and 2 others that saw it happen said about a car hitting him into her car, can they still ask him to pay the damages. Sorry for being such a long post. Cheers Diane. … read more
