Dear Mr Getz
Accident on 1 October 2013 at Redwood, Queensland
I am the owner of a red 2008 Mitsubishi Magna (registration ABC246) that was damaged in
a collision involving your vehicle (registration XYZ890), at about 9.30am on 1 October 2013
at the intersection of Black and White Streets, Redwood.
At the time of the accident, I was driving my car on White Street towards the supermarket.
Your car collided with mine when you sped up and ran a red light on Black Street, causing
significant damage to my front bumper bar, left lights and indicator. After the accident you
said you were entirely responsible for the accident. I have signed statements from two
witnesses who agree you were at fault.
As a result, I am writing to you to organise the payment of repairs to my car. I have
enclosed a photocopy of the quote for the cost of repairs. This covers the cost of a new
bumper and repairs to the lights and indicators. I have also included copies of the receipts
for towing my vehicle after the accident ($200).
If you are insured, please send the details to your insurer and let me know when they will
contact me. If you are not insured, please send me a cheque or money order for $2700
within 14 days so I can repair the car. If you do not pay by this date I will look at my legal
options to recover the cost of repairing my car.
My address is 200 Tenth Avenue, Redwood, 4350.
My contact number is (07) 3238 300.
