My car involved in a minor accident with one tempo traveler last week. it was clearly tempo traveler driver's fault and he agreed to pay the bill after the repair of my car. When I called him with the bill after getting my car serviced, he refuses to pay saying the fault is mine. Can I approach the police to register the case after this one-week delay saying the verbal settlement violation? I have car dashcam footage of the accident and the opposite party is not aware of it.
First, make a complaint to Police on accident, once you get a copy of FIR, at least you have a ground either to claim it from the insurance co or from the Tempo owner. Do not make a further delay, let the other party defend stating about written agreement and the acceptance to reimburse actuals.
