[quote=“wolf_reinhold”]You knocked someone down and he had minor injuries and you offered him 30K!? Jez-o-pete! I am picturing him getting up and dusting himself off – faking being rattled – and sees you and the Porche. They you offer 30 large?
My take is you went WAY high in the first offer. Usually people offer NT$1,000 to NT$2,000 or maybe a tad more if pressed.
No wonder he thought he could take you to the cleaners.
Second thing…I was not aware that an International Driver’s Licence could be used in Taiwan. I know that it should be able to be used, but I seem to recall that the restrictions were such that virtually no one was legally able to. Could be wrong on that.
Third…Do nothing. If the guy doesn’t want a fortune for being knocked down, let him try to sue you. Evidence of wrongdoing? Witnesses? Lawyer fees? Forget him.[/quote]
Tks for the reply. I should have been more specific… after going over him, the ambulance came and took him to the hospital where he received outpatient treatment. The police then arrived and after some investigation, told me I was wrong.
His bike was badly damaged and a local shop wanted 15K for repairs. That explains why I felt it was reasonable to offer 30K and get over with it. Unfortunately, he dosent think so.
