Being involved in a road traffic accident is something nobody likes to think about. It’s a traumatic experience, even if you receive only the most minor of scrapes and bruises. But it’s also infuriating if it’s caused by the careless driving of another person. If your car is damaged and is going to be off the road for a period of time, then it’s understandable if you feel as if the world is against you. After a ‘not my fault accident’, you can truly feel as if you are a victim of circumstances.
How life can carry on
There is one piece of positive news in such a situation, and it’s something that many drivers don’t appreciate. Under Australian Law, if you are not at fault in an accident, you are entitled to a courtesy replacement vehicle to cover the period of time your own car will need to be in the repair shop. Many people don’t know about this, it’s often not widely promoted, simply because the insurer for the guilty party has to cover the cost.
What you need to know about your replacement car
Here at Not My Fault, our experienced team work to provide you with a car as close in functionality to your own as possible. This allows you to carry on with your life and suffer minimal disruption. This might mean getting to and from work, delivering kids to school or sports training, or acting as a lifeline for elderly relatives.
An Excess Waiver is included, and we can both arrange for the replacement vehicle to be delivered to the repair shop where you are leaving your own car, and then pick it up again from that same location when your own vehicle is good to go.
