Customer Quotes

“Even though I only have third party cover, Easigo supplied a fully insured courtesy car, got mine recovered & repaired- all at no cost to me! My own insurer wouldn’t help-makes you wonder why you bother paying insurance!”

Ms S. Harrington, Wakefield.

“My uncle used them years ago- same fast friendly service. Great to have someone who keeps you informed, makes things happen the same day. They saved me paying £750 excess after an accident that was not my fault. My insurer would not help, unless I paid it. Keep up the good work, thanks!”

Mr. A Khan, Leicester.

“Happy to recommend to anyone who had an accident that was not their fault. Much faster, friendlier & cheaper than using my own insurer- or being messed about by other insurer!”

Mrs Wallace, Dundee

“After wasting weeks calling the other insurer, I called Easigo- suddenly everything sorted. Main agent repairs, a car supplied to use, whilst mine was off the road. No fees, no fuss. Wish I had rang them first off. Recommend them to anyone.”

H. Langsdale, Swindon

“T boned off my bike. Insurance started to sort things, then said I had undisclosed mods on bike- void my ins. Another biker put me in touch with these guys- sorted everything, no cost, no drama- even the missus is talking to me again!”

L Hitchin, Luton.

FAQs from Easigo Accident Management on non fault accident claims UK

ROAD ACCIDENT CLAIMS

Yes, so long as the road accident happened in the UK, we can sort things for you. We cannot help with road accidents that happen overseas. You must ensure you have ‘green card’ cover for overseas driving- no claims company can help you if you have an accident abroad.
Yes, if you were injured, we can still recover your car costs, & get you injury compensation, even if you were uninsured. We can only help if there is an injury claim involved. These days, insurance companys look to avoid their responsibilities at the slightest excuse. If the crash wasnt your fault, wecan still sort things
Yes, we can handle your claim through the MIB, which handles such claims. We cannot lend you a free hire car, because that expense is not covered, but we can get you full compensation.
Yes, you are entitled to injury compensation, whether it was your drivers’ fault or the other driver’s fault.
Insurance companies would be happiest if everyone paid their premiums, and nobody ever claimed! They are in the business of making money by getting as much money in, and paying as little out as possible. Compared to the cost of uninsured drivers, or even the average repair bill for your car, the cost of you receiving your rightful compensation is negligible.
If you have suffered either physical or psychological injury (ie: stress, depression etc) as a result of the other driver’s carelessness, you are fully entitled to be compensated.
The amount of compensation you will receive for your road accident injuries depends on a number of factors. For example, what your health was like before the accident, how long the consultant thinks it will take you to recover, and whether the injury has affected your job or social life. No one can advise you accurately, without this information. The amounts awarded depend on these factors; no company can claim to be able to get you a better payment. Our claims advisers have many years experience in these matters, and will be able to discuss your own case with you. If there is no agreement between the claims company and the insurer’s solicitors, the matter is decided in court.
Yes, we will organise for a loan vehicle, so that you will not be left without transport, whilst your car is in the repairers. This will be coordinated with the approved repairers, so that you can get on with life.
We will deliver a hire car to wherever is convenient to you & organise the repair of your damaged car. We will organise any medical treatment you may need & get you maximum compensation. You may be offered a loan car, by your insurers, but you will have to run around to sort it out. Likewise your insurance company will expect you to get repair quotes and generally sort things yourself. Your insurance company will charge you any agreed excess; you may get it back, but that will take a long time. The fact that you had a claim will also affect your no claims bonus- even though it was not your fault. You will not be given the fast service we offer, nor will you be able to select the cash in lieu of repairs option that we can get you.
Firstly, we don’t charge you any fees, or keep any of your compensation. We look after all aspects of your claim, from getting your car repaired, lending you one to use, and getting you maximum compensation. Most claims companies are only interested in handling your compensation claim- we do so much more, all for free.

MOTORBIKE ACCIDENT CLAIMS

Yes, you can claim injury compensation up to three years after your accident. Some people feel they shouldn’t bother, but notice they still have twinges or other side effects. You are fully entitled to compensation.
Yes, Particularly with the type & severity of injuries sustained by bikers, it is essential you receive the proper care and treatment. This will be arranged at a clinic and time suitable for you. Likewise, we can organise for specialist scans, to correctly identify your injuries.
Yes. Actually, it’s essential, if you have hit your head in an accident, that you stop using the helmet. They are designed to absorb the impact shock, and are weakened after a smash. Likewise, your leathers will be weakened, if you have had a tumble down the road. These should all be replaced.
If your motorbike was your sole means of transport, we can lend you a car, whilst your injuries heal. We often find that an automatic car is useful, if a rider has sustained leg injuries.
Yes, even if the police agree you were going too fast, you are still entitled to some compensation. We can handle both the injury compensation and bike repairs for you, at no charge.
So long as we are sorting your injury claim, we can also get you the cash equivalent, instead of having your motorcycle repaired. A lot of people don’t feel safe having a damaged bike repaired, or they may wish to repair minor damage themselves, and pocket the difference.
Yes, we can claim for your injuries and the damage to your bike, even though the other vehicle failed to stop. It is essential you report the accident to the police as soon as possible. We can claim for you through the M.I.B. It takes time, but we get results, and it cost you nothing.
Yes, we will claim directly off the other party’s insurers, so you will not pay any excess. We do not charge our clients at all, so you are much better off using our services.

How to check if the other driver is insured - whilst at the accident scene.
With an estimated 12% of motorists driving uninsured, it can be a real worry, if you are in a crash; not knowing if the third party are insured. The Motor Insurance Database ( MID) has a very useful tool, which you can download & bookmark on your mobile browser. It’s called askMID/roadside.
It’s a FREE to use service, which will tell you not only if the other car is insured, but also the insurer’s det...ails.
You simply need to input your own registration details, an email address, and the registration of the other vehicle. The service will not only tell you if the car is insured, but also the name of the insurer.
If it tells you the other car is not insured, we advise you call the police immediately. Try and take photos of both the other car, and especially the driver.

How to check if the other driver is insured - whilst at the accident scene.

How to take the other insurer to court & win- without leaving home!

In most cases, we can handle your claim; including; Parked car claim, if you were uninsured or even if you have no license! People think we recover fees, for handling a car claim, but we only get paid on the hire side.

If there is no hire, or an injury involved, we cannot help- we would be left with the legal costs. The article below explains, step by step, how to issue a Summons against the other insurer, and what information you need to start. This can be done from your computer- you do not need to go down your local court! Unlike ordinary people, insurers will not want a CCJ against them- they will either dispute the claim, or pay. If your case is clear cut, then they will pay up.

Every week we get lots of calls from guys wanting to know why the other insurer won’t help, or just messes them about- they won’t do anything without a legal threat.

If you find this useful, please give our Facebook Page a Like, or a comment/ share- we rely on happy clients to recommend us!
STEP 1. You will need to find the Registered Office of the other insurers. You can always Google this.
STEP 2. You will need a fair estimate of the amount you are seeking- ideally a quote from a garage, or, if your car is not economical to repair, a fair estimate of its pre-accident value- use Autotrader, put an average price, based on a 40 mile search.
STEP 3. Use this link ( beware, lots of companies offer to do this, & charge you, so use this GOV.UK link; https://www.gov.uk/make-money-claim-online [ ALWAYS use a Gov.UK address- it means it’s a Govt site]
STEP 4. You will asked to name the defendant; put
The Company Secretary [ you do NOT need his/her name- use that job title]
Defendant; XXXX Insurance Co.
Registered Address; - you have found this out
You will be asked to make a Statement of Claim;- simply detail the accident details, why the other driver is to blame, and an explanation of the damage caused.
You will need the estimate/ car valuation, so you can justify the amount you are claiming.
STEP 5. You will have to pay a fee ( which is added to the amount you are claiming).
STEP 6. The court will then send your claim to the Company Secretary of the Insurer you have detailed. They have ten days to either dispute the claim, or pay the amount owed.

If they dispute the claim, they will have to provide an explanation. If they are disputing the amount claimed, you will have to justify the figure.

If no agreement can be reached, a date will be set for a Court case. In over 90% of cases, the insurer will pay, if indeed the accident was not your fault.

How to take the other insurer to court & win- without leaving home!

Its official insurer loyalty doesn’t pay!

The Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) has investigated concerns raised by Citizens Advice in a ‘super-complaint’, that companies penalise existing customers by charging them higher prices than new customers.
The CMA found there is evidence of firms continually raising prices in this market. The FCA must look closely at these pricing practices in its current market study and act to prevent people being exploited by firms. This sh...ould include considering pricing interventions.
The CMA found that there is a total loyalty penalty of around £4 billion a year. They estimate this affects nearly 12 million in the insurance market. They also found that vulnerable people, including the elderly and those on a low income, may be more at risk of paying the loyalty penalty.
The investigation has uncovered damaging practices by firms, which exploit unsuspecting customers. These include continual year on year stealth price rises, costly exit fees, & problems switching to new providers.
Several recommendations are being made to regulators and government to help stop loyal consumers being ripped off. These include:
Firms should be publicly held to account for charging existing customers much more; regulators should publish the size of the loyalty penalty in key markets and for each supplier on a yearly basis.

Targeted price caps to protect the people worst hit by the loyalty penalty, such as the vulnerable, where needed.

So, what can you do about it?

1. Get a new quote from your existing supplier, two weeks before your policy is due for renewal
2. Apply for a quote, from your existing insurer, using your driving details, but under a different name, to see if they offer a better price for new customers- they generally do!
3. check the market, for quotes from other companies, so you can compare. Make sure all the cover you need is provided.
4. If you wish to stay with your existing insurer, advise them of the prices you have been offered.
5. If they won’t alter their price, then move!

Fully Comp & driving other cars- are you insured-are you sure?

Every day we get calls from motorists, with fully Comp policies, who thought they were insured to drive another person’s car. Whilst this used to be the case, with most insurers, things have changed over the last 3 years. Most insurers have removed this cover from their policies. Thousands of motorists are breaking the law by driving other people’s cars without insurance. Police have seized more than 3,000 cars in the last two years from drivers who wrongly thought that they were insured to drive someone else’s car.

How to check. The first thing to do is to read the small print on your policy. If looking at renewing, especially if using a web comparison site, be sure to ask, before buying a policy. If, as is often the case, several the family have cars, and it is likely you will need to drive someone’s other than your own, then make sure you are covered.

If you are stopped, or your insurance checked at the scene of an accident, you are liable to 6 points, plus a hefty fine. The car owner may also be charged with permitting someone to drive with no insurance.

What happens if you have an accident. If it is your fault, the car owner’s insurers may cover the third-party costs, then sue you personally, for the same.

If the accident was not your fault, then we may be able to help. Our solicitors will recover the repair costs, or pre-accident value, whilst dealing with your injury claim.

Legal Obligations to Supply Information at the Scene of an Accident.

We get a lot of calls from drivers who have been involved in an accident, and the other driver has refused to supply any details. A lot of people do not realise that it is a criminal offence to refuse to supply their details, to interested parties ( ie; the other driver involved).

This is covered by The Road Traffic Act 1988 (section 170). If, as a driver, you are involved in a road-traffic accident and one or more of the following occurs:
• a person, other than yourself, is injured,
• damage is caused to another vehicle or to someone else’s property
• an animal has been killed or injured

You must:
• stop and remain at the scene for a reasonable period
• give your vehicle registration number, your name and address, and that of the vehicle owner (if different), to anyone with reasonable grounds for asking for those details
• Insurance details, if known

If you do not exchange those details at the scene, you must report the accident at a police station or to a police constable as soon as you can, and in any case within 24 hours.

Where injury is caused to another person, then in addition to the above you must also:

Produce your certificate of insurance, if anyone at the scene has reasonable grounds to see it. If you do not, you must report the accident at a police station or to a constable as soon as is practicable and in any case within 24 hours. You’ll need to produce your certificate of insurance.

Legal Penalties;
• Fail to Stop / Failure to Report Penalties

Failure to stop and failing to report both carry 5-10 penalty points.

In cases of injury, where you have failed to stop, this can result in a prison sentence of up to six months.

So the next time you are unfortunate enough to be involved in an accident, and the other driver refuses to supply their details, you can remind them its an offence and that you will call the police, if they don’t comply.

If they refuse to give their details, try & photograph both the car registration & the driver. Advise them you are calling the police. If it is a major accident (and some one is hurt) call the police immediately

If it is only minor damage, wait until you get home, call the police ( 101 non emergency) & report them. Ask the police for a Crime Reference Number. If you can supply us with this, we can successfully claim off the other insurer.

“Ghost Brokers”- is your insurance policy valid?

Recently, we have seen an increase in the number of callers advising us they have been told their insurance is worthless, either after an accident, or after being stopped by the police. Indeed, latest figures suggest up to one million motorists, may not have valid insurance- despite having paid for it. These shady policies are sold by “Ghost Brokers”

Tactics used by "ghost brokers" include taking out a genuine insurance policy before quickly cancelling it and claiming the refund plus the victim's money. They also forge insurance documents or falsify a driver's details to bring the price down, police said.

Men aged in their 20s are most likely to be targeted, with "ghost brokers" often contacting victims on social media including Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat and WhatsApp.

Ghost Brokers also advertise on student websites or money-saving forums, university notice boards and marketplace websites and may sell insurance policies in pubs, clubs or bars, newsagents and car repair shops.

How to make sure your insurance policy is genuine

If you suspect you may have bought a fake policy through a third party, there are a few ways you can check.

In the first instance, contact the insurer. The ghost broker will usually have set up a policy with a well-known provider (or claim to have done so). The insurer should be able to tell you whether you have a valid policy with them.

You can also check the status of your insurance on the Motor Insurers’ Database. This will show whether your car is insured, but not whether your correct details were used on the application.

Of course, the best way to avoid being ripped off is by buying insurance from a reputable source- if the seller approaches you through social media, in a pub, or via a message board, you should walk away.

What happens if I cause an accident or are stopped by the police?

Despite your good intentions, you will be treated in the same way as if you were driving knowingly uninsured. You will be liable for damage & injuries caused, in an accident; and will be summoned to court for no insurance.

Disputed Accident Claims- the difference between Contributory Negligence & 50/50.

We get a lot of calls from bikers, who have had an accident, and then been told their insurers are calling it 50/50. The chance of it being 50/50, is, in fact extremely rare- it means both parties are exactly equally at fault.

In most disputed accidents, it is a case of Contributory Negligence. This means that the claimant (the biker) is to some degree, responsible for the accident- possibly speeding or failing to observe the Highway Code.

Until a change in the Law, The Law Reform (Contributory Negligence) Act of 1945, contributory negligence acted as a complete defence. If the injured party was proven to be partially at fault in any way, then the Defendant could not be held liable and no compensation would be paid.

It is essential that any motorcyclist obtain expert professional advice, when making a claim where liability is disputed. It should be remembered that insurance companies are in the business of making profits for their shareholders- not giving their policy holders the best possible outcome from any claim.

Our solicitors are experts at motorcycle claims; and they will give you the best possible advice and fight any claim for you.

Unlike most solicitors, who are simply interested in handling your injury claim; EasiGo also look after the recovery and repair of your bike. We can supply a courtesy bike or car, if you are not able to ride.
