Hi everyone, my name is Julie from California, few years ago I was financially constrained, I needed money for my business so I tried seeking for loan from my bank but I was not granted due to my low credit score I tried seeking for online loan, all I got were fake companies from India who requested many fees upon fees and yet couldn't get me the loan. So a friend introduced me to a New York based loan company ( American Loans ) that grants loans to people irrespective of their credit score where I was given $50,000.00 at 4% interest rate to revamp my business. if you are in need financial assistance contact them via americanloan.us@aol.com

Thank you so much @goodlittleboy for your answer is very much appreciated and so helpful.

Okay i will continue asking for 3 questions as many car garages found difficulty to get the price of spare parts to replace the broken one. I hope police can wait :(

However, Today i visited police traffic office again because as per my insurance company police still block the “road accident report” and insurance cannot proceed my claim.. and i realized that what i have only “vehicle repair permit” letter from metrash.. Then unfortunately they told me my accident is not covered by insurance. Not sure why Police doesnt want to issue the road accident report.

My next question, after i give the quotations to the police for cost of repair estimation, what will happen if the faulty car cannot pay the cost? Do i have another opportunity to get compensation? Or there is no option that i have to bear the payment of my car repair?

Many thanks again for your kindness advice

In Qatar, it is mandatory for a car to have insurance cover always. That is the law. The only time when a car can run on the road without insurance cover, is when the owner has not renewed his Istimara and also his car insurance. In order to get an Istimara renewed, documentary proof of valid insurance for a minimum one year, is a must.

Now coming to the queries posted. The 3 quotations are required to allow the authorities to estimate the cost of repairs. As such, what the garage people are saying is not correct. As for the second query, yes you can go ahead and repair your car once you have the Police Report in hand as you need the car for your use.

Coming to Angelo's question, if the police is calling you, they are not joking. They have a situation in hand which they are trying to resolve. While, they are calling you, I believe they are also calling the other person and pressurizing him to pay for the damages. Once he does so, the money will be handed over to you. The other person's car may then get released by the police with or without a penalty.

GLB, I hoped the Police would do that. In my case, I repaired my car as the Police were doing nothing, even though they impounded the other guy's car. One consolation is that the Police still call and ask if I need to get paid. I do not know if it is a joke or they are serious.

Thanks for your respond.

Yes yesterday, i got the accident report paper from the traffic department. And they told me, to give them 3 quotation from the garages.

And the man at the garage said if I had to look for 3 quotations, it means the car owner doesn't have insurance. Is that true?

Sorry I'm totally new to this situation. And i dont have any idea at all.

And my other question. What if the owner can't afford to pay? is there any other way i can do? :(

If there has been a car accident, the Traffic police must get involved. Report the matter to the police immediately. They will handle the issue. Possibly, the other car owner also has an expired Istimara. The police will make the other car owner pay for the damages to your car.
