Both your insurer and an Accident Management company should be able to provide you with assistance you need after an accident that was not your fault.
However, the assistance provided by your insurer is likely to depend on you paying them the excess you have on your policy first.
Also - by making a ‘claim’ on your policy, you may lose the annual benefit of your ‘no-claims bonus or discount’.
Finally the cost of your insurance may be increased because you are now considered to be at an increased risk of having further accidents.
That’s quite a lot of potential financial penalties for someone who has done nothing wrong.
This is why thousands of road users every year choose Car Call UK and its partners to provide accident management as an alternative to a claim on their vehicle insurance policy.
To find out how our accident assistance compares to a claim on your insurance policy, call 02392 484 244 to find out more.
We and our partners can arrange the services and assistance you need to resolve your accident issues.
When your repairs and assistance are complete, we will recover the costs directly from the insurer of the person responsible on your behalf.
How do they compare?
If you make a non-fault claim on an insurance policy:
You will probably have to pay the excess before your vehicle is repaired
You may not receive a replacement vehicle that is suitable for your needs
You may not be entitled to legal assistance with your claim
Your vehicle may have to be repaired at a specific garage
You will probably lose your no-claims bonus
The cost of your policy at renewal may increase due to the claim

You have no excess to pay
Your no-claims discount is protected
The cost of renewing your policy is not affected by a claim

Your replacement vehicle is delivered typically within 3 hours of accepting your claim
Your vehicle can be repaired at one of our approved accident repair centres or at a repairer of your own choice
