He drove a company car with company insurance, hence he was not going to pay anything out of his own pocket.

It was my insurer who advised I went and dealt direct with his insurer - hence my insurer has no costs to recover and hence my insurance record with them remains unblemished - They confirmed this.

Best obtain the full facts before calling anyone foolish pal.
