Need advice

    I’ve just joined this forum, but I need some advice on what to do. A month ago, I was involved in an RTC, which I believe was not my fault, let me tell you the circumstances:

    After having been into a local supermarket, the road which leads out onto the main road passes a fuel station, also belonging to the supermarket, as I was driving along this road out of the supermarket, I was approaching the fuel station, with the intention of going out onto the main road, before I could do so, a woman in a Citroen, was coming the opposite way, as it transpires intending to go into the fuel station, she gave no turning signal or any clue that she was about to turn right, I was just about at the entrance to the fuel station when she suddenly swung her car right, without giving way to my oncoming approach, and struck the front offside 3/4 of my car, I got out, I lost my temper and shouted at her, but that was all, I then immediately proceeded to take photographs from various angles of the location and the damage done to both vehicles. The lady is insured with Direct Line, we have made a third party claim with them, fast forward to 2 weeks after, and the third party (the woman) is refusing to admit liability, the insurance company are insisting upon CCTV footage from the supermarket, which I made sure was available, and the manager of the store assured me this would be locked and made available to the insurance company. I should also mention the police attended this incident and viewed said footage. The supermarket has not submitted the footage to

    Why not just claim through your own insurance, and let them do all the work? That's what you pay them for.
