Areas of Law / Personal Injury

Following an accident the police towed my car away, and it has since run up storage charges of more than £700. There’s a dispute about who caused the crash, but both sides agree my car is a write-off. I’ve already lost my car and some earnings; do I now have to pay the storage bill?

If you had comprehensive insurance your insurers would probably deal with this. Now that the assessors have looked at the vehicle you should remove it immediately; this will probably mean paying the bill yourself. You will be looking to recover this money and also compensation for the value of your car from the other driver, so I suggest you see a solicitor. Even if you win your case, the other party will probably only accept responsibility for your storage costs up to the point where the insurers assessed the damage.
