- Should I report all Motor accidents to the Insurer?
Yes you should. Even if the accident appears are minor, it is important that you let your insurance company know about the incident. If you have an accident but don‘t report it to your insurer, you are taking a risk, even if the damage seems minor. If the other driver sues you weeks or months later, your failure to report the accident might cause your insurer to refuse to honour the claim. And even if they do, the delay will have prejudiced the insurer’s position as concerns gathering evidence to represent you.
- When is a car ‘written off’ by an Insurer?
It’s up to your insurer to decide whether to pay for repairing your car or to declare it a total loss and pay you its market value. Standard motor policies will not pay to repair a vehicle if the repairs cost more than the cash value assigned to the car. In practice, there will be little dispute about whether to repair the car if the damage is above 75% of the book value of the car. You’re entitled to the market price of the car you just lost. You shouldn’t get more or less than what you are due.
