In the UK, if you have had an accident due to someone else’s careless driving, you are entitled to have all reasonable expenses, including repairs to car and a replacement hire-car, recovered from the insurer of the person responsible.
Your insurer should do this for you. However it also typically means you will have to pay the excess on your policy, lose your no-claims bonus and almost certainly incur an increase in the cost of your next insurance premium.
Car Call UK and its partners provide independent alternative accident assistance to thousands of people every year. This is different to a claim on your policy because we resolve the consequences of your accident without a claim on your policy.
So, there is no excess to pay, you don’t lose your no-claims bonus and the cost of your next premium should not be affected at all. We recover the cost of your assistance directly from the insurer of the person responsible.
To find out how our accident assistance compares to a claim on your insurance policy, call 02392 484 244 to find out more.
But don’t I have to claim on my car insurance?
You do not have to make a claim on your insurance if you were not at-fault for the accident – it’s up to you.
You notify your insurer that the accident has occurred, but it will be noted purely for information purposes only, so no claim on your policy is made.
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 insurance policy.
Do you provide the same services as an insurer?
We provide the same comprehensive range of services to all our customers – regardless of the type of insurance cover you have.
