In a Parking lot, a man parked his vehicle to a football game to watch. Another visitor came, and in addition, turned his car directly. A little later we noticed that both vehicles were on fire. The first car probably started the fire because it was parked on a still-hot disposable barbecue. It was the second car on fire.
The driver of the second car demanded by the opposing motor Vehicle liability insurance compensation for his damage. This refused, but The Brand was not done in the case of operation of the vehicle.
The matter of the employees of the courts. At the end of the insurance had to pay. Because regardless of the fault of the owner or driver insurance need to regulate the damage emanating from the car. So it was not in the eyes of the judge here as to whether a technical Defect in the cars or Parking on the hot Grill was the cause of the fire: The fire had jumped from one to the other car. Thus, the causative danger was expected from the first car.Updated Date: 07 June 2020, 07:35
