About Auto Claims Assist

Choosing between an Accident Management Company or the insurance company

Insurance companies have their own methods of approaching accident situations.

Unfortunately for the non-fault driver involved, these methods do not prioritise your wellbeing or vehicle requirements.

These methods will usually have cost savings very high on the agenda.

But why is this fair on the non-fault driver?

Who pays consistent insurance premiums year-on-year? 

As Accident Management Specialists, we ensure that you receive everything that you’re entitled to, without any corners cut based on cost-savings.

As an independent Accident Management Company, we handle your case fairly.

But most importantly; at no cost to you. 

The reality is; an Accident Management Company does not benefit from the attempts at cost-cutting from the insurers side of the process.

As a result, an accident management company is 100% on your (the non-fault parties) side.

Focused on ensuring that your experience is fully inclusive of everything you need during your downtime

One common mistake that people make after they’ve had a non-fault accident is to instantly ring their insurance provider to discuss their options.

Whilst this may seem logical, it is not beneficial to the non-fault party. If anything, quite the opposite. 

Whilst you are legally obliged to let your insurance company know if you’re involved in an accident, you shouldn’t contact them right away about your vehicle recovery or repair. Here are three main reasons why:

You risk losing your no claims bonus. Even if the accident wasn’t your fault, you risk having to make a claim and paying excess. 

You risk higher insurance premiums. Until the claim is finalised, your insurance policy will have an on-going claim.

It’s likely that your next insurance premium renewal will be due during this process and you will experience price increases for this.

You won’t receive a like-for-like replacement vehicle. Many drivers will be given a vehicle of a different size or spec to their own.

This can be impractical for their vehicle needs. 

You may not get a say in your repair. Your insurance company may decide to cost-cut during the repair of your vehicle.

The garage and parts may not be most suited for your vehicle.

At Auto Claims Assist, we use genuine manufacturer-approved garages. We have a 400+ repair garage network for you to choose from. 

Using an Accident Management Company will lead to:

  • A better end result.
  • A professionally managed service.
  • The best experience for you.
  • Overall less stress.

Why do people use accident management companies?2021-11-30T15:47:11+01:00

Our Frequently Asked Question: Why do people use accident management companies?

An accident management company offers start-to-finish handling of a claim for someone who has been involved in a road traffic accident. One of the main benefits of using an accident management company is the accident management advice that you receive.

For the at-fault party in an accident, using their insurance company is the only option. However, for the not-at-fault party, going through their insurance company isn’t the most effective decision to make because it can affect their no claims bonus and insurance premiums.

An accident management company will lower the risk for your case through expertise, accident management solutions and the correct processes. Auto claims assist also have dedicated accident management software to ensure efficiency. Having that professional hand to hold during the process to give the guidance you need to navigate through your claim to come out to the end as least affected as possible.

The best part is: there are no costs to the not-at-fault party in the accident for using an accident management company, and they don’t even need to pay their excess! All costs are covered by the at-fault parties insurer.
