It can be frustrating to realise that making an insurance claim for an accident that you did not cause may mean you will have to pay the excess on your policy and claim it back at a later date.
Making a claim independently of your insurer is straight forward and enables you receive a number of services if you were not at-fault including repairs, a like-for-like replacement hire car if yours is un-roadworthy and legal advice if you require it.
Don't I have to use my own insurer?
If you are not responsible for the accident occurring, we and our partners can provide you with all the services you need and simply recover the costs directly from the insurer of the at fault driver on your behalf.
Your own insurer will be notified as required, but for information purposes only so your insurer will not actually process your claim.
