Call it sheer bad luck, I park my car (Mazda 3 sedan) between two parked cars This was a month ago and it was a very windy day, I open my car door and the gushing wind slams my door against the car parked next to mine(Mitsubishi wagon), causes a minor dent in the door, hardly noticeable. And the car was occupied !!
Now, I received a call from Accidents Australia and they have told me the cost assessment to repair that dent is 14,500 $ !! Looks like they are replacing the entire door.
I have a third party insurance cover with budget direct.
Do you think this incident will get covered by insurance ?
I call them up and ask for something on paper and i get an SMS, its got details of the car's rego and the owners name and the sms is signed by someone from statelaw.com.au
