A damage caused by a driver. A damage with witnesses. What comes after that is a hell of a blast from people who deny everything, try to keep the case off, try to discourage the victim ...
However, we recently learned from the immediate vicinity that after more than six months of constant pressure on the boiler, something was going to happen. Simply through personal tenacity. And proper administration. At one point apparently even insurance broker Hunink Dorgelo thought it was going crazy, for which compliments. The guarantee fund subsequently turned out to be approachable.
The case was that there was damage to a parked young timer. The witness gave a description of the car. “A red or dark orange car with a dark brown or black structure with bold white letters on it. When addressing the company, the damage specialist indicated that there is a lot of difference between very dark brown and black. That he had 1200 cars and could only do something when specifying a license plate. He referred sideways to colleague companies with the same name. He assumed that the culprit could be found there. And he said the guarantee fund would resolve the matter.
During later contacts with his own insurer, the police and the guarantee fund, the man turned out to be a true juggler and magician with words. But he didn't admit anything.
Finally, the Guarantee Fund decided to handle the case anyway ... That was partly possible because the victim could document everything about his own car, the witness statement, the police report and the entire administration rimram
The fact that that fund uses a deductible is unfortunate, but something is better than nothing.
But never, never expect an insurance specialist to admit guilt of a car clearly recognized as the culprit of a major international transport operator with a driver base consisting mainly of Bulgarians and Ukainers.
And be extremely careful when parking your oldtimer or youngtimer.
Oh yeah; the car in question had already been repaired. And a thick photo album was made of it. The guarantee fund could live with that.
