FOREIGN WORKER CLAIMS WILL SETTLE ACCIDENT PRIVATELY, BUT LATER SENDS $9,000 BILL

I was recently involved in a minor accident with a truck driven by a foreign worker. At the point in time, there was no sign of injury or distress.

In fact the truck was hardly damaged compared to my car. Truck owner and myself agreed not to make a police report on the next day since there was no injury sustained. However, i received a claim most recently from the foreign worker’s represented legal firm, claiming $9000 of medical distress on top of other claims. This is outright cheating to me.

May I know does MOM condone such an act?

Here are what netizens think:

  • Pls lah, not only foreign workers. Some Singaporeans pull the same stunt. When my car was hit from behind, I reported about my car damage. I did not sustain any injury. My Singaporean colleague told me to go fake it at the GP and claim. She said she and her husband does whenever they involve in accidents.
  • All this claims are initiated by the employer, workshop or insurance company. The very least is to take as much pictures of both vehicles b4 leaving the scene. Vehicle insurance claim is a very lucrative. Be extra careful if the incident Involves taxis.
  • It’s important to always make a police report on the spot when there’s an accident. Difficult to claim or refute if there isn’t any police report made.
  • I encountered almost similar case but just only kissed the Taxi driver bumper where not even a dent or scratches! That taxi uncle walked out fr car didn’t even see his car and immediately demanding & insisting said insurance settle. Then we took photo and immediately made Idac report on the next day, thought even he can claim only few hundred dollars since taxi uncle insisted to b settled by insurance. Abt 3 months later I thought nothing happen bcos no insurance company call me, but after another month later, I received a claim letter fr their claim insurance company, (guess also did send the same documents to my car insurance company, bcos they called me to verify did I hit tis taxi onot!) stated the medical bills of that taxi uncle was abt $7000, where they really provided all the medical bills, medical report, private clinic with doctor signatures dated on that night! Where I higher suspected it was a scam, but I still can’t do anything where my car insurance Premium was raised on the following year.
