Accident that was not my fault, does it affect NCB?
A non-fault accident claim on your insurance will almost certainly mean you will lose your annual no-claims bonus or ‘NCB’.
If you are involved in an accident that is not your fault, it can end up costing you money when it really should not cost you anything at all.
Not only will a no-fault claim on your insurance affect your NCB, it will almost certainly mean your insurance premium will increase. In addition to this, you will probably have to pay your excess too before your car is repaired and then recover the money later from the insurer of the person responsible.
Fortunately thousands of drivers every year have wised up to this - by using our independent accident assistance instead of a claim on their own car insurance.
