Accident Claims. Never rely on what a car insurance company says

With accident claims, despite what they say whether it’s “Lucky you’re with AAMI” or “Making claims easy” when you are involved in a car accident or road accident that’s not your fault it’s the other drivers CTP insurer who will be paying your claim and not the insurance company you have chosen.

According to a study by Canstar, AAMI and Budget Direct came out on top as the top rated car insurance products in 2012. However, according to their report QBE came out on top for accident claims based on claims services offered such as emergency repairs, arranging accommodation, accident clean up and towing costs. QBE were offering generous amounts for these things which made a real difference to the customer experience.

CTP (green slip) insurers are not the same as third party insurers

With a CTP (Green Slip) insurance policy you have more rights to injury compensation. To find out your rights and how to receive the maximum compensation contact us or call 1300 430 834.

Some accident claims are fault-based and some are not. In some jurisdictions it doesn’t matter who is to blame! If you were traveling to or from work or for work you might also have cover under work compensation.

Car insurance companies really only show their true colour when we have been in an accident. They will either step up to the plate of fall short in the area of claims. This is particularly true when it comes to serious injuries. For serious road injuries there is a broader scope of compensation entitlements available. These may only be obtainable through engaging a solicitor to fight to win a maximum accident claim. If you are involved in an accident where there has been serious road injuries sustained it is very important to get a second opinion on claim entitlements. Independent organisations such as the Australian Injury Helpline offer free information, forms and advice. They will tell you what your full entitlements are under the law and connect you with an approved no win no fee lawyer.

Be wary of a car insurance claim offer

It’s fair to say that insurance companies would rather sell more products and minimise paying out claims.  Some insurance companies minimise risk by increased premiums so claims are covered, so their approach to payouts many vary and some insurance companies are better than others. This is why it is extremely important to get an independent review before accepting or signing anything! Once you have signed you may sign away any future legal rights to an accident claim.

Members of claims staff at car insurance companies are given bonuses to keep payouts as low as possible. But when a person injured badly in a car accident can’t walk again or ever return to work, he will need a sufficient payout more than anyone. If he doesn’t get compensated fully the financial burdens caused by the road injuries may cause even greater turmoil.

Road accidents are usually always caused by another person’s negligence. It is important to get everything to which you are entitled to under the law. Sufficient compensation is much needed in the case of road deaths and debilitating road injuries.

Insurance companies can be pretty frugal when paying out insurance claims. Never rely on what a car insurance company says. Get a second opinion. Be informed and get connected by contacting an injury helpline. Click here to contact us or call 1300 430 834.
