In your earlier thread you wrote:
Do you have estimates for the cost of repairs?The insurance company is now playing hardball and will not pay for all damages. In the letter the insurance adjuster states the damage and even shares there own insured agreed to having caused the damage. The insurance adjuster in my opinion is unfairly adjusting the claim for refusing to pay for all of the damage.
How much are they?
Did the adjuster provide an estimate that conflicts with yours?
In what way does it conflict?
What did the adjuster tell you as to why he won't pay for all the damage?
Please answer each of the above questions thoroughly and provide a photo of the damage to your car.
Do you have estimates for the cost of repairs? - Yes both mechanical and to the autobody
How much are they? in total under 10K which qualifies for small claims court
Did the adjuster provide an estimate that conflicts with yours? - The adjuster used the autobody estimate that I shared. There is engine damage that the adjuster denies. There also is diminished value that the adjuster will not consider until the vehicle is repaired.
In what way does it conflict? - The adjuster is not accepting loss for the engine damage.
What did the adjuster tell you as to why he won't pay for all the damage? - The adjuster claims that I will have to prove the mechanical damages to the engine. The adjuster will not consider the mechanics estimate I provided.
"Muted" would be an attempt to introduce your proposed evidence of character or character trait on the part of the other driver as proof that he was acting in accordance with that trait on the occasion in question. In other words, it would not be admissible.
No more than if the other guy tried to show proof of his good driving habits. Like for instance having his aunt Minnie testifying that for years he chauffeured her to and from church without incidents. (Although she always sat in the back just in case.)
Anyway if this guy is such lousy driver and accident prone as you profess he wouldn't likely be insured. Correct?
