A few months ago i was involved in a car crash in jaoshi (Ilan) driving my bosses infinity QX4 (expensive car) While quietly driving on the east coast highway a driver made a sudden U-turn about 15-20 meters in front of me, i slammed on the brakes and hit his right rear panel. After a breath test he was found to have a 0.83 MG/L blood alchohol level (he was stumbling all over the place and can’t remember anything he said ie: completely pissed) initially his insurance company (fubon) refused to pay for any damages on the grounds that ‘i hit him’. I requested a report from the accident determination commitee in Luodong to determine blame, immediately after which fubon offers 70% of damages. This amount still leaves me NT40-50’000 short of fully repairing my bosses car. The report states the he should not have been drunk and should have let me pass first, and that i should have slowed at this point in the road although i was driving under the speed limit.
does anyone know where i stand?
should i hold hold out for 100% of damages
should i accept 70% and sue the guy for the rest?
i’m not looking for anything extra, just enough to cover everything. the guy got away with an NT8000 fine and i’m heading to be out of pocket for an accident i didn’t cause.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
