Unhappy Help/Advice with accident police report

Long story short. My husband had a car accident in Mirdif City Center, got hit by a local lady with her Nissan Petrol. The car was hit on the driver side and the passenger side hit the curve. They called the police. After 15 mins she did not want to wait anymore, she asked him to go with her to the police at the Mirdif City Center. Once they get there, they only spoke Arabic to each other, and the police did not talk to him at all. After that handed him the green slip report all written in Arabic and told him to give it to the insurance cos all will be covered. Then the car was towed to the garage.

Next day, the insurance informed him that the report only cover the driver side of the car and they will not fix the left side of the car which including the replacement of suspension. He asked the report to be adjusted.

We went back to the same police. He said no, he will not change anything.

I called the mall management who agreed to give footage of the accident as proof. I read on this forum, someone advice to go to Rashidiya station, so we did. Again they do not want to change the report, told us to go back to the same police. So we did go back to same police who again said no and did not want to look at the VDO.

Is there anything more that we could do? Or should we just give up the hope and pay for the fixing by ourselves?

Maybe you can show the video to the insurance company that indeed this was caused by the same accident. I am sure there are many cases where the police cannot discover cover all underlying defects caused on a car once it was in an accident. That is really the job of the estimator.

Duty manager at the mall told me that the VDO can only be shown to the police, not anyone else. In my company, we cannot even view our own CCTV record if the police was not present. It is the law.

Reading between the lines, it sounds like it's your insurance company playing silly ******s here. Welching out on their commitment and pushing back, knowing that you won't get an explanation or any further with the police or local lady.

Get someone to read over the accident report and start demanding the service that you are entitled to from the insurance company.

Hi,
A bit of lateral thinking (and bravery).
Report accident at a police station and state that damage may have been caused by a police car at a certain date and time, location (of original accident).
They will then need to visit mall to view CCTV and will then see that damage was caused by original accident and will be forced to change report!!
Best of luck
Steve

That seems to have potential to go wrong quite quickly, wouldn't be too surprised if falsely accusing an official is mentioned somewhere in an obscure decree that could see someone locked up and on a plane home eventually..
