On Christmas Eve my wife reversed into a car as she was parking. It was arguably a 50/50 but that's not the issue. Anyway, there was some cosmetic damage to the other car - we don't care about ours as it's not the main car is due being replaced anyway. The driver of the other car said with it being Christmas Eve they were too busy to deal with it there and then so we exchanged contact details and she said she'd be in touch. I took pictures of the damage and reg number just in case I'd need them later. That was three weeks ago and I've not heard a peep out of them. I'm starting to think they might not have been insured or there's something else going on but it's got me wondering about whether there's a time limit to instigate a claim with the insurer and they've missed it? It's a strange situation as it was a new car and at least one door and the rear wheel arch is going to need a respray.
