DHL Complaint - Hit & Run By DHL Driver
MODESTO, CALIFORNIA -- Problem: On 07/21/2008 at 11:58 AM DHL came to my home to pick up a package.
My father and I were in the garage working when they pulled down our driveway.I was watching the whole time and I saw them backing out of the driveway and smashed the front end of my trans-am,my father heard this came to the door where I was and we both saw the driver drive away like nothing happened.
We couldn't believe it.
Anyway I ran up to the top of the driveway into the street yelling and waving my arms behind this van trying to stop him. I ran to my truck in order to track this driver down.
So I went home called DHL and they said they would call me back.I waited and waited for them to call back but they didn't. My insurance told me they would help me with the case A few days pass and I contact DHL because they never called me back.When I called them They give me their insurance company; Allied Ins.
Meanwhile I get an estimate.$1909.00 WOW. The send a guy and he takes photo's and tells me there was no damage to the vans bumper. Of course not because he had a black steel bumper and I have a black rubber bumper on my 74 trans-am with fiberglass around the lights which got smashed.
Anyway I called Allied Ins today and the lady said if the driver says he didn't do it then they will be on the drivers side because no damage to the vans bumper and to bad for me basically.
I took my own photo's.There was damage that matches the damage on my car.
When I sent The photo's of the vans bumper to allied ins,the agent tells me the scrape with white paint that match the damage almost exactly to my damage on my car was there for over 6 months. You can tell its fresh damage and Now DHL's insurance tells me the driver said he didn't do and they were not going to pay.
I advise everyone to install outdoor video camera's on their property.I know I will be.
Looks like I need a good lawyer.
