Contrary to what you may believe, your no-claims bonus and consequently your next car insurance premium is likely to be affected by a non-fault claim on your car insurance policy.
Why is this? Well, the amount you are charged for your annual car insurance is based on a number of factors about you, and this of course includes the number of accidents you have been involved in. Annoyingly, even though you did not cause the accident you were involved in, your insurer is still likely to assess that you now pose an increased risk of making another claim. As a direct result of this, you are effectively being penalised financially for someone else’s mistake.
Another consequence of a non-fault claim on your car insurance policy is that you will almost certainly still have to pay the excess on your policy before your vehicle is repaired. Your excess payment should be recoverable from the at-fault drivers insurer at a later however, but this could be many weeks or months after the accident.
Clearly neither of these situations is ideal for anyone, this is why thousands of motorists every year choose to make their claims using our independent non-fault claims service rather than a claim on their own insurance.
