Reporting an accident

After being in a car accident it’s important to know who to call and what details to collect at the scene.

By calling us early:

  • We can get your claim started straight away so you’re back driving as soon as possible.
  • We’ll quickly look into liability and establish who is at fault.
  • You’ll have immediate access to our skilled support teams (e.g. recovery, car hire, repairs) who can help relieve the worry and stress of the accident.

Prompt reporting of an accident can also help to:

  • Combat potentially fraudulent or exaggerated claims.
  • Control costs by keeping solicitors, third party insurers or accident management companies out of the claims process.
  • Avoid unnecessary legal costs, which can help control the cost of premiums.
  • Protect your No Claims Discount (by collecting accurate driver, passenger and witness contact details, and sketches or photos).
