Car accident claim, anyone can help??
« on: April 19, 2014, 02:20:48 PM »
Hi all,

My friend car knocked a Singaporean car from behind at Jalan Sultan Ismail,KL on 11 June 2011. Singaporean car has been sent to singapore for repair. Everything just go fine because he thought everything has been settled by the both of insurance company. Unfortunately, on 26 March 2014, he received a lawyer letter from Singapore lawyer firm to claim SGD 8600 from him. A question here, do him need to pay the amount or it should be settle by the insurance company?

Should be! Otherwise why buy car insurance? The law mandates we all must be insured for such so that the insurance company will settle everything.

No one really can help you because the incident described is not detailed.
There must have been a lot of other ongoings which your friend might not have disclosed to you.

My friend car knocked his car from behind. His car bumper damaged a bit. Immediately my friend and that singaporean guy go to make police report. Summon been issued to my friend and paid immediately RM300. My friend called the insurance company and car being tow to the workshop and that singaporean guy drove his car back to singapore for repair. Everything just goes fine and thought everything has been settled by insurance company. Manatau, recently he received a lawyer letter from SG to claim SGD 8600 from him.

Can this be called harassment. Claim for mental anguish after receiving the legal claim from Singapore. Cannot sleep and suffering from mental distress since receiving the demand. :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

Contact the car's insurance company for advise.
