This question frequently arises in road traffic accident cases. Can I recover the cost of my car damage prior to settlement of my injury claim?
The answer is that just one claim can be brought by a claimant in respect of the accident. Therefore it is not possible to bring a separate claim for car damage, both claims must be brought together. However Gary Matthews Solicitors will always encourage Insurance companies to settle the “material damage” (car damage) claim separately in the early stages and frequently insurers are willing to do so.
Refusal to do so may result in further costs having to be paid by the Insurers for the additional inconvenience caused to the claimant as well as car-hire expenses and possible bank interest if a loan is taken out to cover the cost of repairs or a replacement car. It is also worth noting that insurers must also pay a figure for “depreciation” to a car which has been involved in a collision.
