Many people mistakenly believe that if a car accident is not their fault, it does not affect their insurance. Actually - it does.
When an insurer ‘deals’ with your accident repairs etc. for you, you are making ‘a claim’.
It does not matter whether it’s ‘his fault’, ‘her fault’, ‘your fault’ or ‘their fault’ – it’s still a claim on your policy.
So the effect of a no-fault car insurance claim on your policy will be: -
You will probably have to pay your excess before your vehicle can be repaired
The cost of your insurance is likely to increase as a result of your non-fault claim
You may lose your no-claims discount
This is why thousands of motorists every year choose not to make no-fault on their car insurance policies and use our alternative claims assistance.
Will you get my car repaired and a replacement?
If you were not responsible for the accident and you need your vehicle repaired, you can choose between a claim on your car insurance policy which has the disadvantages mentioned above, or you can use our service instead.
All costs and charges are recovered directly from the insurer of the person at-fault for the accident.
We independently help thousands of motorists every year get the assistance they need without any of the disadvantages of a claim on their own car insurance.
Not only will you probably save money by using our service, but you will find our service is usually better than that of your own insurance provider.
You will get your vehicle repaired at one of our network of approved Accident Repair Centres. We will also deliver a like-for-like replacement hire vehicle to you if yours is unroadworthy, so you have a quality vehicle to use instead of an old garage ‘courtesy’ car.
The solicitors we work with can also help you recover the costs of any uninsured losses. These could include the recovery accident expenses, lost earnings, travel costs, hire-vehicle costs or personal injury claim costs.
It does not matter what type of insurance cover you may have on your vehicle, we act independently of your insurer, so all our customers are entitled to the following services: -
We provide a like-for-like replacement for your damaged vehicle
Your replacement is delivered typically on the day we accept your claim
