    Some people reaaaaaally need a little slap or two...

    My sister's boyfriend was out cleaning some water out of her VW golf (the seals are clearly borked... again) and was sitting by the back door with the door resting against his legs.

    Some dozy plonker came flying past, clipped the door and practically ripped it off - fortunately her boyfriend didn't get hurt but he could have easily lost his legs! The dozy **** was clearly shocked apparently and conceeded that he had not seen it etc etc.... so they took his details and just considered themselves lucky that tom (the boyfriend) wasn't hurt.

    Few days later, they get a letter through the post from the guy's solicitor saying that he was suing, and claimed that the door had been opened into the road as he went past which it clearly hadn't.

    Make's my blood boil! there are some absolute weasels in this world...

    People are out for all they can get and unfortunately there are too many companies out there encouraging them to do it.

    Least you have where he lives

    He shouldn't have been so close to the car in the first place.
    When i was doing my lessons (many years ago) i was always told to allow 3ft in case a door opens as you are passing.

    As far as insurance is concerned, the other guy hit a stationary object. As pointed out, he shouldn't have been so close. Just my 2 penneth worth

    Simply - just tell the truth - if there are any witnesses they will back up your version - if not then its your word against his - stalemate.

    I'd be tempted to pursue this through the County Courts if his insurance company refuses to pay up. I've done it before - they soon shell out the readies.

    I would have thought there's nothing he can say - when i was being taught to drive i was always told to keep enough distance from parked cars for opening doors/kids running out etc... obviously his lawyer thinks differently.


    Alas there are no witnesses to the accident, so it just ends up being Tom's word against the muppet's. I don't think he knows our father is a solictor though haha!
