I was involved in a traffic accident here in Qatar last November 4th.
An SUV suddenly made a U-turn from a car park slot without checking a vehicle coming from his rear, as there was no chance to brake, I hit his door (driver side) with my front bumper...
Police report: His fault
His - Front Left Door left with a huge dent Mine - Car Plate damaged, minor dent and scratches on front bumper
His insurer has now agreed to pay for the body works through their service garage.
Today, just about 300m away from the workshop after I collected the vehicle, the left brake burnt, so i have to return it to the shop and asked them to resolve the issue and settle the fees with the insurer as "accident related damage"
I will know from them tomorrow of the result of their discussion, but in case the insurer refuses to include it to me claim, what are my rights?
Well, you have to show that the brake issue is accident related. That is standard for insurance companies. If you cannot show that, they may not cover it. It is the way it works. Talk to the mechanic and see if they can tell you if this is a possibility (more likely than not).
Some insurance companies will be very good and not give you an issue. Some will give you hell.
If you have an issue, talk to a local attorney.
You have a right to talk to a lawyer, you always do.
