Motor Accident?

Do I have to tell my insurer I have had a road accident?


Car Call Claims line

The terms of every vehicle insurance policy will contain a condition like this: -

“Failure to notify us of any road traffic collision involving your vehicle will invalidate the cover provided by this policy”

There will also be a time limit in which you will have to report the accident contained in the terms and conditions of your particular policy. If you were at-fault for the accident, it is advisable to report your accident as quickly as possible.

If the accident was not your fault - you still have to notify your insurer of the incident. However making a non-fault accident claim on your car insurance policy can have many disadvantages.

To find out the benefits of our independent claims service call 02392 484 244 and we will be happy to help.


It’s up to you. If your policy provides the legal cover and the assistance you require and you are not concerned about the effect your claim may have on your future insurance costs – you may choose to claim on you own insurance policy.

However using our alternative claims assistance allows you to get your vehicle repaired, a suitable replacement and legal assistance all without potentially losing your no-claims bonus and increasing the future cost of your car insurance.

Why not let my insurer deal with it?

If your insurer handles your non-fault accident claim, you will almost certainly still have to pay the excess on your policy and your claim will probably result in an increase in the cost of your insurance.


What is an independent car accident claim?

We act completely independently of your insurer to provide accident assistance to anyone who is not at-fault for the road accident they were involved in.

We report your accident to your insurer, but only for “information purposes only” so that you are in accordance with the terms of your policy, but they will not process your accident claim.

We provide a comprehensive accident service to all our customers, which includes quality repairs to your vehicle, a like-for-like replacement for you to use whilst yours is being repaired and professional legal advice and assistance.

You get the kind of assistance you would expect from a fully featured insurance policy, except you will not have to your excess and the cost of your insurance should not increase as a result of your independent claim.


So who pays for all this?

We will recover the costs of any services we provide directly from the at-fault drivers insurer on your behalf.
