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.
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.
Why You Don’t Need To Call Your Insurers
Normally, the first thing people do in this situation is call their insurance company and the incident will end up being treated as a claim. However, you don’t need to do this. Newmans Smash Repairs will arrange all the administration work in dealing with the insurance work in your behalf. Plus, because the claim is not handled by your insurer the incident should not affect your renewal premiums.
Its Your Right to Choose Your Repairer
Insurance companies will have their preferred body shops, which they will encourage you to use, however as the owner of the vehicle you are in the driving seat and you have the legal right to decide who repairs your vehicle.
Newmans Smash Repairs will ensure your vehicle is repaired exactly to the original manufacturer’s standards and with genuine OEM parts, helping preserve the future value of the vehicle and maintaining any remaining warranty.
Our highly trained staff have many years’ experience and knowledge of body shop repairs for all makes and models of vehicles whilst our advanced estimating systems allow us to accurately and fairly price all repair work whether minor or extensive.
