Compare non-fault car insurance claims with Accident Management
In the UK, anyone who has become the innocent victim of someone else’s careless driving is entitled to have all reasonable expenses, including repairs to their vehicle and a replacement hire-car, paid for by the insurer of the person responsible.
This means that as far as possible, the victim of the accident is not left out-of-pocket in any way, their vehicle is returned to its pre-accident condition and during the repair process they are able to continue their daily activities as if nothing had happened.
That’s what your insurer should do, right? Well not exactly.
If you have any excess on your car insurance policy, you will almost certainly still have to pay this before the repairs to your vehicle are started. You should get this money back from your insurer, weeks or months later when they have recovered all your losses.
Now remember that the accident was not your fault? Well now your insurer will almost certainly increase your next insurance premium because they now consider that you are more likely to have an accident in the future.
Make sense? – no we don’t think so either…
How our non-fault accident management service benefits you
The fact that we make thousands of successful independent claims every year proves that our customers have made the right choice in using our service instead of a non-fault claim on their own car insurance policy.
We provide our service independently of any insurer. The assistance we provide with your accident claim does not cost you anything because we will recover this on your behalf directly from the at-fault driver’s insurer.
I have to claim on my car insurance, don’t I?
You do not have to make a claim on your insurance if you were not at-fault for the accident. We will notify your insurer (as you are required to do) that the accident has occurred and it will be noted purely for information purposes only.
We will then deal with your accident claim in much the same way as your insurer, except we are not bound by the limitations of your particular policy.
Do you provide the same services as an insurer?
We provide a comprehensive service to all our customers. This includes all the backup and support you would hope to receive if you had a fully featured car insurance policy.
