My question is regarding a car accident where I was not
My question is regarding a car accident where I was not insured but the other party was. In my opinion (and I show evidence) the other party was at fault, I had witnesses approach me immediately after the accident and offer their details. I received a letter from NRMA (the other party's insurer) stating that according to their member I was at fault. I gave them my versioon of events and details of my witnesses. they replied that my witnesses could not be contacted and are not filling in the required form. Finally i received a letter from NRMA stating that due to lack of information they will not pursue me for repair cost to their client's vehicle. I am being ripped off by NRMA for no fault of mine. (the other driver was illegally on the wrong side of the road when he hit my car) my question is: how can I get NRMA to listen to my side of the story? even if my witnesses are refusing to get involved (i tried calling them and they're not picking up ) it is obvious if they look into it. … read more
