How it works
In the event of an accident, your driver can call a freephone number from the roadside, or as soon as convenient afterward. One of our team of Motor accident management team will take them through our reporting process ensuring all relevant information is recorded including the identity of any Third Party, relevant insurance details and a summary of the number of occupants and any injuries. Where vehicle recovery is required, we can arrange this over the phone for your driver and the Third Party.
Whether the accident is your fault or not, we will manage the repair to your vehicle through the relevant Insurer approved repairer.
Where the accident is your driver’s fault, we will also manage Third Party vehicle repairs and hire them a replacement vehicle at a discounted rate, helping to protect your Motor Fleet claims record against excessive costs.
Following the accident report we will send your fleet manager a full summary for your records and keep you informed throughout the repair of vehicles.
What are the costs?
Our standard service is completely free of charge. There are no hidden charges, we are reimbursed through insurers for the work we undertake. This work-share fee does not increase the size of any claim recovered from your insurers so it does not impact on profitability of your insurance policy, in fact through prompt notification of loss and pro-active management of third party claims, we seek to reduce the overall claims costs.

Personal Injury referral fees
We can provide an advance payment of up to GBP 1,000 per case on Personal Injury cases.
Since 1st April 2013 when the Jackson reforms came into effect there is a ban on personal injury referral fees. In the past these referral fees, sometimes up to GBP 600 per case, have formed a large part of the incentive for fleet owners to use Accident Management providers. Since Jackson reforms took effect, anyone giving or accepting a referral fee is breaking the law and may be prosecuted.
Prior to 1st April 2013 there were many poorly run credit hire businesses who existed to exploit the referral fees available. Services from these companies were poor and hire vehicles were often older and poorly maintained. Accident Management firms can no longer offer referral fees and you should beware of bogus operators.
Our Motor Accident Management service can assist in the management of any Personal Injury cases, however we cannot offer referral fees but we do offer a seamless service to reclaim both vehicle damages and personal injury damages from Third Party Insurers.
For this reason on Personal Injury cases we are only permitted to pay an advance on damages up to GBP 1,000 to assist the claimant.
Using our Motor Accident Management service could not be easier. Just complete our one page application form and we will supply you with a set of keyfobs with our dedicated freephone number so your drivers can start straight away.
