If you have a car accident and it was not your fault, you would expect the insurer of the person responsible to pay for everything.
Actually it doesn’t quite work that way.
Firstly, you will probably be told to hand over the excess on your insurance policy before they will authorise the repairs to your car. Don’t worry though, in several months’ time you should hopefully get this money back from the at-fault drivers insurer...
Secondly, the cost of your next car insurance premium will probably now go up – thanks to that accident that was not your fault.
So, it is going to cost you money then.
