As i`ve said a few times on here (been there done it),the first thing you do after an accident if possible is find an independant witness,the third party in`s will say "your word against theres" .On one occasion when this happened to me i went direct to the other driver and told him his in`s will not pay out and i got a cheque of him for the damage.Another occasion the same thing but the lady was old but she admitted fault to her in`s,so i pressed my in`s to get that statement from them,they did and i was paid out.Don`t forget your in`s will be glad of 50/50 bullshit because they don`t give a toss.
you insurance company convince you to go 50/50 if you know it was 100% liability of the defendant , in's love easy cases because it saves on paperwork and solicitors.
