My husband (we are married ANC without accrual) was parking my vehicle for me and accidentally reversed into the neighbors vehicle with my bakkie. The bakkie was uninsured at the time. A year later the insurance recovery clark (Santam) is trying to recover this damages of R30 000.00 from me as she said it was my vehicle and I am liable to pay. My husband did pay the owner of the vehicle an amount of R3000 which he said would cover the damages – a dent on his car door, but there is no paper trial to verify this. Bottom line – am I liable for the R30 000.00 I no longer own the bakkie – have another insured vehicle now.
