Right, question as to what people on here think.
My brother planted the front end of his year old Civic into the rear of a 4x4 at the weekend on a roundabout. Obvious that at first it is going to be his fault as he hit the other car.
But... this is where there could potentially be a twist into his favour.
Just a bit of background information. They were stopped at a roundabout, 4x4 goes to pull away, but stops pretty soon after pulling away. My brother had obviously thought he had gone so went himself, meaning the result was he went into the back of him.
But, the 4x4 according to my brother and his G.F had no brake lights, meaning he wasn't able to see if the 4x4 was slowing!
Now, I rekon its worth fighting a legal battle through the insurance over this. In my opinion, I rekon he stands a good chance if there is a way of proving the 4x4 had no brake lights.
What do you all think? After all, he has legal cover, so won't cost him a penny, hasn't got anything to lose over it, so its worth a try, but what I want to know is if he would stand a reasonable case to battle with?
