No Fault in Accident and Insurance Premium

Hi All,

Unfortunately, I was part of an accident in August while I was on my motorcycle and someone hit me from back.

Now though the other person and his insurance company have accepted full liability and responsibility and my insurance company has said that I would get no claims certificate in the end of my insurance term, I am curious to know if my insurance would go up just because my name would be on accident database ??

Would it affect my car and motorcycle insurance ???

Thanks in advance...

database? New on me,

All accidents should be disclosed (last few years) upon any renewal your fault or not.

In my case as yours with non fault it did not increase my premiums.:smile

You're now classified as a higher risk, you shouldn't have stopped in such an exposed position.

My wife's car premium went from £180 to £550 after a no fault shunt. The parasite MDs have to earn their bonus somehow.

yep

just put your details in on a price comparison site with and without a non-fault crash and see what happens.

Apparently

how it works is: you have a non-fault accident, claim off the other parties insurers, inform your insurer (because they need to know of "insurance related events".

Then, because you've been in a no-fault accident, YOU'RE considered to have a higher risk of a fault-accident (claim against you) in the next (3 IIRC) years. (I think its on the Confused.com site somewhere).

Christ knows how they work that out - I've had 2 non-fault incidents in little over 6 months, so renewal time will sting a bit...

No fault accident and insurance premium increase

No-fault accidents often do result in increased premiums as the actuaries (highly paid statisticians) calculate involvement in a no-fault accident makes you a higher risk going forwards!
