A car hit the side front of my car .He was trying to a left hand turn from the wrong lane. I called the garda's they took a note of the event when they arrived, and said they don't get involved in civil matters. Even though verbally he said to be that he paying and he admitted liability at the scene. However 2 days later he denied everything, my car had to be towed,storage which he said he would pay but never did. He drove away after exchanging details. I am very concerned medical costs are rapidly rising via vhi, physio gp etc. They still are in denial. I have suffered from loss of work as I can't drive my car until it's repaired which they have refused. I have vhi seeking 100% recovery of there costs which is an absolute disgrace considering I didn't cause the accident. I was going to work as usual through no fault of my own someone decides otherwise. I find the situation very unfair on a genuine injured party.

Get a solicitor

Have you been in contact with his insurance? At worst, you can claim through your insurance and then have them chase him.

I would get in contact with his insurance company and see what they say. After that I would look in to getting a solicitor, I know its expensive but it might be worth it.

Be sure to get good photographs of the damage to your car to confirm your account of the accident.

Your own insurer may fix up your car and pursue the 3rd party for recovery, but they won't be able to look after the injury side. You have to do that yourself or with the assistance of a solicitor
