[QLD] Towed' Damaged Car

Discussion in 'Politics, Laws, Government & Insurance' at netrider.net.au started by engels, Jul 20, 2009.

  1. Hey peoples,

    I know this is unrelated to Moto's but thought some of you might be able to help. My sister's car got towed last week and they did some damage to the muffler. Anyways she signed the release form before she had the car which on it states that there was no damage done to the car.

    The wane-kerr of the owner knows this and said he wouldn't pay for the damage. Any options to take or no-go?

  2. She signed the paper to say it was fine when she got it. Nothing she can do now really. Unless she can somehow prove it was in a place where she would not have been able to see it without some assistance, or that the bloke who toed it deliberately hid the damage.
  3. Her insurance company might cover it.

    Other than that, it's her responsibility.
  4. Tell her to get on to one of the law advocacy places like Law Access. They're government funded, and will give basic legal advice over the phone. They don't give representation.
