Sample response to letter of demand - car accidents 

Form assistanceThis is an example of a response to a letter of demand. It is important to write your letter using your own details and based on your own circumstances. If you need more help, get legal advice

AlertWhenever you write to the oth​er party, make sure that you only include things that you may want to rely on in court. You should double check any money amounts and dates to make sure they are correct. If you want to offer to settle the matter, you can write the words 'Without Prejudice' on your letters. This means the letters sent by you usually can't be used as evidence in court.

Dear Rob

RE: CAR ACCIDENT - TUESDAY 1 DECEMBER 20xx

I refer to your letter dated 15 December 20xx. 

I deny that the car accident on Tuesday 1 December 20xx at Burwood was my fault. 

You pulled out of your parking space at the shopping centre without looking. I had already put on my brakes but your car came back and hit the front of my car. As a result my car was also damaged and needs repair. I am in the process of getting quotes and will forward them to you soon. 

I do not believe that I am at fault and will not be paying for any repair work for your car. 

Yours sincerely,

MJ
