I was looking around for references regarding my case and I chanced upon this website. I noticed that you guys have been helping a lot and decided to post
I was involved in vehicular accident on March 25. A cab and I. No injuries. While a police report has been furnished, it does not indicate who is at fault. I have read somewhere that usually, whoever is the Vehicle #2 in the police report is the one at fault. An excerpt from the report:
"Reaching at the stated place of occurance, the right front side portion of party no.2 driven Hyundai Accent Taxi figured in collission with the left front side panel of party no.1 driven Toyota Vios"
I understand that the other driver would save his skin but not admitting, but the photos are pretty obvious. Anyway, yesterday, I received a subpoena (the driver himself as the complainant) asking me to provide some documents. I have already contacted my lawyer friend and he'll make a counter affidavit.
I have a comprehensive insurance policy - if that would matter. Sabi ng Insurance, naunahan pa ko.
I would like to ask, what is your say to the matter. I certainly would not want to settle. I believe I am the right. How would this go?
Do I need to retain a lawyer? would this be economical?
