Hi Atty.,

Last Nov. 3, 2011 me and 2 of my office mates had dinner at a restaurant in Lipa, Batangas. We left the resto at around 8:00pm. The road was very dim, wala po talagang streetlights kahit saan luminga. Kaya ng matiyak namin na wala ng sasakyan both left & right, at wala rin aninag ng ilaw ng padating na sasakyan, ay nag decide na kaming 3 na tumawid. Nakalampas na kami ng isang lane at kalahati na ng 2nd lane ng bigla na lang may kumalabog at nagdilim ang paningin ko. Next thing I knew, 2 people (driver & his mother) were helping us get on board a passenger jeepney at duguan yung 2 officemates ko. We were brought into a public hospital then immediately transferred to a private hospital when my other officemates arrived whom I managed to inform about the accident. The accident was reported to the nearest police station, na-impound yung jeep, and kinuha yung lisensya ng driver at rehistro ng jeep. The driver and his mother promised to shoulder all expenses that will be incurred due to the accident. Pero nakalabas kami ng hospital na halos kami rin ang nag asikaso sa mga sarili namin dahil ang ginamit ay Philhealth coverage at HMO card namin na company-provided. Ni wala silang ibinigay na pang daily expense namin dahil 2months kaming hindi makakapagtrabaho. Nagkaroon kami ng verbal agreement na babayaran nila ang 1)bill sa hospital, 2)sweldo sa mga araw na hindi kami makapagtrabaho, 3)return check-up, 4)gamot na pang maintenance at 5)Php30,000 as moral damages dahil na rin sa tinamo naming sakit ng katawan at trauma ng pag-iisip at kalooban. It’s been one month already pero wala kaming natatanggap kahit alin sa 5 na napag-kasunduan. Plano namin magsampa ng demanda para idaan sa legal ang amicable settlement. Makatwiran po ba ang 5 items na demand namin sa kanila? Paano po kung hindi sila magbigay? Hindi lang po ito isyu ng pera, isyu po ito ng muntik ng pagka-ulila ng aming mga anak kaya dapat lang na hingiin naming ang whatever we feel is due to us. Your advise on this will be greatly appreciated. Thank you po and more power!

^Yes makatarungan ang mga hinihingi niyo, kung hindi nila ibibigay ang napagkasunduan niyo, maari kayong magfile nang civil case for damages against sa driver at may-ari nang jeep. As for evidence, gamitin niyo yun police report, medical certificate, mga receipt of expenses, at kung may testigo, mas maigi. Pero kung sa tingin niyo na mabuti naman tao yung naka-aksidenti sa inyo, try niyo muna padalhan nang Demand Letter,para maipakita sa kanila na itutuloy niyo ang demanda kung di sila susunod sa usapan, dapat may proof kayo na natanggap nila ang demand letter, like may receiving copy kayo na pirmado nila, or registry return card.
