With the number of cars on the road on the rise and more people getting distracted with their phones, radios or just general conversation, accidents are happening more and more. Even if you’re a careful and safe driver, you can still land up in one – if another driver is distracted or not looking around them, they may drive into you! In this case, the other driver could be at fault leaving you to file for a not at fault insurance claim. If you’re not at fault, you have the right to drive and the at fault driver is liable for the costs and damages associated with the car accident. Here are some ways to make sure your claim is successful.
Work with the right team
Having the right team on your side to help you through this stressful time will make your life so much easier and calmer! Our team is experienced in not my fault accident claims, and will be able to assist you in determining fault, organising an accident replacement vehicle and towing your damaged vehicle should you need assistance at the accident scene. All you need to do is to provide all of the accident and at fault driver details to us as soon as possible.
Gather enough evidence and information at the accident scene
It’s vital as the driver not at fault, that you gather enough information and evidence while you are at the accident scene. This includes taking photos of the damage to the vehicles, making note of the at fault driver’s registration, car as well as insurance and contact details.
Talk to witnesses
If you’re able to, take a look around to see if anyone witnessed your car accident. If you’re not at fault, these witnesses will be able to provide additional details to the insurers about what really happened. Ask them if they’d be willing to share their contact details with you as well as their witness accounts that you can pass on for your insurance claim.
