Driver didn’t get brass ra­zoo

Townsville Bulletin - - Voice Of The North - Townsville Bul­letin

I WOULD like to add some vi­tal in­for­ma­tion to your story ‘‘ Truck driver com­pen­sated af t er coll i s i on with 4WD’’ ( TB, March 3).

It sounds like Greg Con­don got paid that amount of money when in ac­tual fact i t wa s a ‘ ‘ s u b r o g a t i o n claim’’ ( which is the right for an in­surer to pur­sue a third party that caused an in­surance loss to the in­sured). Ba­si­cally mean­ing the in­surance com­pany en­gages so­lic­i­tors to re­coup their money for re­pairs.

Greg ac­tu­ally didn’t get a ‘‘ brass ra­zoo’’.

It amazes me how such cru­cial in­for­ma­tion seems to be over­looked or left out com­pletely.

The re­port where this in­for­ma­tion came from did also state the break up of fees as to where that money went.

If there is go­ing to be a space in your pa­per for a story, please make space for the whole story. JOCELYN CON­DON,

Char­ters Tow­ers.
