Hello guys.what is procedure to help me with mg question?
Further information relating to Question:
I was on my way home at 18:30 on Thursday last week driving through Aegean Heights gate.
There is only one gate to enter and exit our complex.
As I was driving in through the gate a man was on his way out so the gate was like 10% need to be open(was busy opening) I push my pedal to drive in, because it was exactly enough time (from opening time to start closing its 13 seconds)the gate was starting to close.,when i was just starting drive in.the gate scratch left side has the following damages:
· Left side door has scratches
· Left side door handle has scratches
· Left side plastic wheel arch
My access is too high to claim back from my insurance company.
As this was not a mistake made on my behalf would the "Family trust" in our building be liable to pay for the damages to my vehicle as the gates sensor did not work.
Please advise at your earliest convenience.
