High jack the thread alittle..
What if the barrier is manually operated by the security guard in guard house?
Happened to me once, the barrier was up. Guard told me clear to go in, so when i went in, i think he pressed the button to up the barrier thinking its in the down position to let me in without first checking the positioning of the barrier.
Can claim against the management like that? It's obviously due to the guard fault.
Actually, I suspect so also or it's just a sway accident. Coz the part timers are very ngiao, won't even come out of the guard house when there's delivery for eg. to check on the delivery guy's vehicle and take down details. They wanted to delivery guy to go to them instead and my guard house is high up. Some blur and didn't know and obviously didn't read sign that they have to go to guard house.
Once, I had to go down myself coz I thought guard was away, ended up guard sitting inside thinking he is king!
I would want to claim against the management but feel bad for the guy who isn't earning much and will kena also. But they cannot happy happy just close on me if they don't see properly right? They can always follow me down the carpark and ask for details if they think I am not a resident. How can they damage someone's car?! If I have driven faster, it may hit top of car and kena worse damage? Grr...
Hubby is in management committee anyway and he's going to ask them for video. If it's a freak accident then at least must make sure prob is rectified to prevent further cases on others too.
Anyway, did you manage to claim from you management for your case?
