Someone reversed into my motorbike and we were both at the scene. The gentleman admitted fault but asked to not go through insurance as he would rather pay for the repairs privately.
NEVER agree to such arrangements ...
At least, require a written confession of liability if you do agree to this scheme.
No written admittance of liability + not going thru insurance, virtually always leads to the following
He is now doing a u-turn and refuses to engage in conversation or admit liability. What are my options?
Report the accident to the police and to your insurance
If you can somehow prove he reversed into you
If you can't prove that, you might end up being seen as having caused the accident yourself
In that case, you might NOT want to report it ...
