1 Minor driver versus DUI on Sun Feb 11, 2018 11:39 pm

Hi,

Newbie here. I am Annie from Makati.
I would like to know who should be held liable in this accident. Let me share the story po.
My nephew is 17yo,no license and he drove a motorcycle.
There was another driver in front of them who was drunk and drove carelessly. He sometimes sped up then slowed down but suddenly went full stop. My nephew tried to dodge but they were still hit.
The driver got off and tried to punch them but my sister and her boyfriend were behind them so he sped away. It was found out that the other driver has no license too.
In this case, what could be the penalty for my nephew who's unlicensed minor and the unlicensed drunk driver? Can each file a case against each other?
Thank you for the response.

Did the police intervene in the situation? Was there a police report? If yes, what were the recommendations given to you by the police handling your case?

The police report is important because it contains the details of what happened in the accident as per the judgment of the police. It is also used as evidence in court during litigation.

Cases can be filed against each other, and the merits of the case shall be dependent on the evidences and witnesses presented in court. Pero kung kaya pang pag-usapan at maiwasan yung pagsasampa ng kaso, dapat dumaan muna kayo sa mediation kasi baka naman pwedeng danyos na lang ang ibigay nung nakabangga na lasing.

Good luck in your situation.
