Why do I pay insurance excess if I am not at-fault?
Car insurance companies don’t really care whether your road accident was your fault or not.
Because you are still making use of their service to assist with your accident, then as far as they are concerned - you are still making a claim. So, you are still obliged to pay your agreed excess (at least initially) towards the cost of your repairs, whether you were the guilty party or the innocent victim in the car accident.
It’s true you should be able to claim this money back from the at-fault driver’s insurer. This however could be many weeks or even many months later.
