4 reasons why you should avoid no-fault car insurance claims
Thousands of people every year choose not to make no-fault on their car insurance policies.
This is because it not only costs them money to resolve the accident using their insurer, but they may also have unnecessary limitations on the assistance that they can receive.
The disadvantages of a no-fault car insurance claim: -
You will probably have to pay your excess before your vehicle can be repaired
The cost of your insurance is likely to increase as a result of your non-fault claim
You may not be entitled to a guaranteed like-for-like replacement hire-car
You may not to be free to choose who repairs your vehicle
Do I have any choice - who else can repair my car?
If you were not responsible for the accident and you need your vehicle repaired, you can choose between a claim on your car insurance policy or you can make an independent accident claim using our non-fault claims service.
We independently help thousands of motorists every year get the assistance they need without any of the disadvantages of a claim on their own car insurance.
Not only will you probably save money by using our service, the assistance we provide to our customers is often better than that offered by their own insurer.
You will get your vehicle repaired at one of our network of approved Accident Repair Centres. We will also deliver a like-for-like replacement hire vehicle to you if yours is unroadworthy, so you have a quality vehicle to use instead of an old garage ‘courtesy’ car.
The solicitors we work with can also help you recover the costs of any uninsured losses. These could include the recovery accident expenses, lost earnings, travel costs, hire-vehicle costs or personal injury claim costs.
All costs and charges are recovered directly from the insurer of the person at-fault for the accident.
