Non-Fault Accident Repairs
When you have been involved in an accident which was not your fault, you are entitled to make a claim for losses suffered from the responsible driver’s insurance policy.
Following an accident, if your vehicle can be repaired, you are entitled to have it returned to its pre-accident condition so insist on the expertise and warranty of a kitemark approved repairer, Tonbridge Accident Repair Centre.
If liability for the accident has been admitted by the other driver, we can arrange a suitable like-for-like replacement vehicle, through one of our associated specialists. The costs of this vehicle can also be claimed from the at-fault driver’s insurance company.
