Here are three statements about the aftermath of an accident where you were not at fault. Do you think each is true or false…
1. I have to fund a replacement vehicle upfront and out of my own pocket
2. I will have to pay any excess waiver fee myself
3. I will need to collect this vehicle direct from the supplier
Three key questions – but one common answer
And that answer is – false. Many Australian motorists, after they have been involved in an accident that wasn’t their fault, don’t appreciate how this distressing and infuriating situation can be much less of a hassle than they might imagine.
Three simple truths about a Not My Fault accident
Referring to the trio of questions we asked right at the start of this blog, here are three things you’ll want to know…
# Under Australian law, if you are the victim of a not your fault accident, then you are entitled to an accident replacement car while your own vehicle is off the road. This fact is often not advertised simply because it’s up to the insurance company of the driver who was at fault to provide the funding for this.
# The Excess Waiver is included in the above arrangement
# Our ever-helpful Not My Fault accident team can arrange for your replacement courtesy car to be delivered to the repair shop where you are leaving your own vehicle. In fact, they can even arrange for it to be picked up again when you go to collect your own car after the repairs are complete!
