This should probably go in the Law forum but 'law' is one of my trigger words, so it is down to you lot. A few weeks ago I was accosted by some hunt follower Muppet giving it "I am so sorry, so sorry" and being close to tears. Once I pointed out that if he snotted on my ratcatcher I would ******* spark him, he calmed down. Turns out he had parked his 50 year old classic car on a bank and engaged the handbrake. Which sprung loose launching his car into my wall, which it demolished. Nobody got hurt. No problem. He is gushing in his admission of guilt and keeps saying how sorry he is. We both take pictures and I decline his offer to come up to my house and discuss the matter further. His insurance company sent an assessor to look at his car. The assessor said it was badly maintained. Lateral movement on the handbrake lever and general crap maintenance. So he can **** off if they are paying him out. How does this affect me getting paid to repair my wall? Cheers for any advice.
