Hi. I had a car accident and contacted my insurer and they told me to take my car to their inspection centre, which I did. I collected my car at closing time and thought nothing more of it. I then received a call from the car insurance company implying that the car accident appeared to be all my fault. I said it certainly was not, as I was going the correct speed and the taxi was speeding. They said again that I had contributed towards the accident, but would not say what I had done to contribute towards the accident. Anyway, they have denied my claim. I need to know what are my rights and I need to see a lawyer. A friend of mine who works in a smash repair shop says that they may have accessed the car's onboard computer which has a memory that remembers everything that the car does such as speed and braking. I may have been speeding a bit, but I really am not sure. Is this "black box" theory correct, and if so, what are my rights in a privacy situation? Are they allowed to connect to the car computer without my approval? I will need a lawyer on this one, but need a bit of advice about my rights with the insurance company, whether I was speeding or not and also about this car computer matter also. What sort of lawyer do I need?
