Expert's Assistant chat
Customer: Hello Mr. Melis, I just need to know my rights, as the driver in question is disputing the case. If he was tired after a long night at work (according to the police), and therefore hit the light post causing it to fall onto my car, and me having no time to react, who's at fault that my car is a total right off? I was driving to work, the street was cleared of any obstacles, and all of a sudden I hit something, not lying on the street, but directly into my engine. If I had driven slightly faster, it would've hit the windscreen and then me, and I wouldn't be alive today to dispute my case. I have sent pictures of the damaged vehicle. Please help. The police told me it's his fault, if he hadn't hit the post I would've driven safely to work. The car is now in my driveway as my insurer advised me, they will be needing it for investigation. I had a car from compass for 3 or 4 days, but because the driver in question doesn't want to assume responsibility, they took it away and now I have no car to go to the doctors tomorrow and if I have the ok, I don't have a car to drive to work on Monday. I was doing the right thing, but I only have 3rd party insurance. Police Report #: T(###) ###-####6153 Thank you, ***** *****

John Melis, Expert

Hi, I’m John, solicitor, and reviewing your post, and may need to ask a few questions a long the way to assist you.

I kindly request that you please clarify your question?

Hello Mr, Melis once again,
Just to inform you that Mr. Kevin Abbot of 0412 634 465 was unable to help me as he says he doesn't deal with motor vehicles. He told me to search for "Lawyers who deal with motor vehicle accident" website, and I must have reached him at the wrong time, which was soon after I've spoken to you. I have tried that website and continue to search. Thank you,
Best regards ***** *****
