Did you know that $27 billion is the estimated cost of car accidents in Australia every year? That’s a lot of bingles. And no prizes for guessing what the most common accident in the country is — nose to tail accidents caused by tailgating. That is, motorists traveling too close to the vehicle in front of them. Almost 9% of all vehicle crashes are the result of this very frustrating driving trend.
One of the first things to do
So, without wanting to be the bearer of bad news, there is a fairly high chance that sometime in your driving life, you will be on the receiving end of a nose to tail crash. For most people, their first phone call is to their insurance company. Quite right, and very understandable. But high up on that list of phone calls should be one to the team at Not My Fault, to immediately begin organizing an accident replacement vehicle. It’s not a bonus, it’s your right. Under Australian law, if the accident is not your fault, you are entitled to get a “right to drive” replacement vehicle.
A replacement car just like your own
Not only is it your right to get a replacement, but you are entitled to a car just like the one you own. If you drive a luxury car, that’s what you must receive. If you drive an SUV, same deal. Not My Fault will ensure you get a vehicle as close as possible to the car you are used to driving. Remember, it’s not a bonus add-on thing to your insurance. Your insurance company can often be too busy organising repairs to remind you of ALL your rights. Not My Fault will help you remember EXACTLY what you are entitled to. We can deliver your like-for-like vehicle where you want it, when you need it.
A call to action
So keep this number front and centre in your list of emergency contacts – 1800 699 034. That’s the direct line to the Not My Fault team who will spring into action arranging and delivering your replacement vehicle. And let’s hope those tailgating statistics start going backwards sometime soon….
