Whilst very very slowly reversing my 33' long ten ton motorhome outside the mot bay in (a.n.other) council's mot yard, a council owned sprinter van drove alongside my offside, then did a tight u turn behind me, causing a small collision. At the time, the manager and driver and i all agreed that it would probably go 50/50 and not to bother with paperwork etc. No one was hurt. There were several witnesses from the council (one of whom said later it was the van drivers fault) damage to my vehicle less than 100 quid. That was july 2013 Today, i recieve some paperwork from a repair company about a claim against me by the council. Paperwork says no witnesses! Yet this was in the councils own main vehicle depot! 1- why did they wait so long? 2- how do i now know the damage to the sprinter was related to our collision, or some subsiquent, near year long, other incident? 3- isnt there a statute of limitations on such things for this reason? I spoke to a.n.other councils insurance department, who seemed confused and commented that it was odd. Any suggestions on how to proceed?
