Car Accident in Marbella

Auto ClaimsThe following is the very detailed description of a car accident experienced by one of my clients, from "crash to courthouse". This is a complete account of what you may expect to encounter if you have a minor fender bender on our streets:

My car accident in Marbella

A few weeks ago I was driving to a dental appointment in Marbella when I was sideswiped by another driver. It is a rather unpleasant foreboding experience for a foreigner to have an auto accident in a foreign country so I wish to share my experience with you when you have your accident. Notice I didn't say "if " or "if and when". I said "when". If you do any driving at all in PC you will have an accident. No matter how careful you drive. It is only a matter of time. The driving experience here is a form of motorized dodgeball. The cars come at you and you must dodge them.

Don't use that cellphone pumping gas!

Automobile InsuranceShell Oil Safety Alert!

Here are some reasons why we don't allow cell phones in operating areas, propylene oxide handling and storage area, propane, gas and diesel refueling areas.

The Shell Oil Company recently issued a warning after three incidents in which mobile phones (cell phones) ignited fumes during fueling operations

In the second case....

Car towed away by Panama A.T.T.T.?

Auto ClaimsBy Carmen Dunkley

The mall is full, no spaces available and you decide to park in front of a “No Parking” sign where the sidewalk is painted yellow. Two hours later, you walk out the mall and your vehicle is gone? You should consider the possibility your car has been stolen, but it may have been towed away by the A.T.T.T.

If there is no evidence of theft (witnesses tell you the car was last seen hooked to a tow truck), the automobile was probably taken by the A.T.T.T. If this happens to you, you should contact the A.T.T.T. office at 502-0591/0592 and provide the clerk with the specs of your vehicle including the license plate. She/he will contact the Transito street officers via radio and find out if your vehicle was removed by their towing service. It recently took me several hours to help a client locate their automobile.

Where do they take them?

Guide to New Panama Transito Law!

Auto ClaimsHas this happened to you? Standing in the middle of the road under the hot sun or pouring rain, horns beeping, traffic backing up.......all because you had a collision on the streets of Panama!

Here are the basic procedures to follow after an automobile accident in the Republic of Panama. Based on my experience, interviews with Transit Police and Insurance Company Claims Adjusters, here are some worthwhile suggestions that may help ease your post-bender blues.

Immediately after the collision, call the roadside assistance telephone # of your insurance company and ask that they come to the scene.

When no person has been injured and both parties agree who is responsible, take pictures and move the vehicles to the side of the road. If the other party leaves the scene of the accident, find a policeman and report "Colision y Fuga" (Hit and Run). This may protect you from further legal consequences.

Here is a rough translation of the articles described in the new law:
