    Insurance saying at fault over claim but not involved in accident. 9th Jan 18 at 9:49 PM
    I was in 2 minds as to whether to seek help here on this topic because i know there's a large cynical section and this will really get their juices flowing. But then i thought why should i not ask for help just because of those people, especially when of the forums i'm on this is probably the best spot for this type of question so on with it...

    Before i get in to the details of the claim as i'm not sure if it's necessary, the basics are a third party has claimed they were hit & the driver sped off.

    This accusation is false. No damage to car. Car finally got inspected and the inspector has highlighted a small scratch & determined that this must've been from the accident. The 'accident' was late Oct, insurance got in touch early Nov & were continuously offered & asked to come and inspect in person to which they finally decided to do 27th December. Plenty of time for any damage to occur to the car - the only thing is that this scratch was actually on the car when it was bought earlier in the year (only thing is no photo evidence with EXIF data to show this).

    So that's the issue here - they're saying this scratch shows the insured is at fault even though it was on the car when it was bought.

    Can you appeal these things? If so then what's the process?

    Just to point out your aftermarket wheels are illegal as the tyres are protruding from the wheel arches....
