Had a small bump in country lanes in a work van and a bmw. The lanes were wet and I skidded and clipped someones mirror, no damage to my mirror but the bmws was scuffed and a tiny chip to it. Exchanged details and we went on our way. Now shes claiming about scratches all down the side of her car and claims she has pictures to prove it although my van has zero damage from the bump. Being a white van and a black bmw its would be very noticeable of any damage on my van.
Because of this my company is struggling to insure me on the vans and I'm now out of work whilst this goes on. Head office will be dealing with this but unsure if they will be backing me up, is there any legal advice I can seek for this or am I solely relying on the pictures of my van?
I'm new to this company so I want to make a good impression by dealing with this myself and not causing issues for head office.
I didn't take pictures at the time of the accident like a tard as the driver of the bmw was unsure if she was even going to claim for the mirror and traffic was building up in both directions so we both went on our way.
I will be great full of any advice on dealing with exaggerated claims
