My husband (on his scooter) was hit by a car last month. Since both parties could not agree on who was at fault, the decision was made to wait for the official police report.
Today, we called the police and they said “They couldn’t find any fault with my husband. The other party was negligent in making a U-turn.”
Ecstatic with this decision, we called the other party and asked them to verify the judgement for themselves and when they would compensate us for the damaged scooter.
To my surprise, the other party said it’s not the police but another body that decides who pays what.
Does anybody know what that other body is? Is it the court?
What should we do? I feel they are just dilly dallying and it might take forever to make them pay. The amount in question is $8,600.
