This is my dad's traffic matter. He's an elderly school teacher and was exiting the school yard through a t section onto the oncoming traffic. While stopped, a parent has hit him from behind, with minor damage to his car and a cracked headlight to the other vehicle. To make matters worse, he had no insurance coverage and his rego had lapsed. The other vehicle's insurance has sent a letter out saying they are looking to claim the liability from him. Doesn't really say anything like he is 100% at fault or similar. I would think that being he got hit from behind, it is actually the other driver who is at fault. Or does being unregistered cancel this out?
Also, is there a way we could see the other persons version of events? They claimed to have had a recent accident before this one. I have read about going to the financial services ombudsman as well.
