...there's a claim!

Just typing some repsonses to various posts etc wen the phone rings.

Wife answers. Its the car insurance company that looked after her claim last year when a numpty reversed into her car at a well known supermarket chain.

Claim all completed with full recovery of losses etc thrid party admitted liablity.

The company working on behalf of the insurance firm (I believe?) is phoning up (Drive Assist) to ask my wife if she has suffered any injuries as a result of this 'accident' last year. "No" was her response. "Are you sure?" was there's. "You could have had to self medicate, taken a couple of days off work for the shock of the whole incident. Is there anything that you feel you could claim for?" WTF:rant:

If she was injured in anway, she would have claimed at the time!

Its these sort of tactics that continue to increase peoples insurance cover year on year and contribute to the blame and claim culture that has developed in this country :mad:

Who would one contact to report these tactics - its wrong!

It would have been so easy for her to just say yes and get an easy Grand in her back pocket. Morals and principles. That’s one of the many reasons why I love her so :D

The same company (drive assist) kept phoning me after my accident last year trying to get me to claim for injuries I never had, after the fourth phone call I threatened to make a claim against them for harassment and attempting to defraud an Insurance company, funny how I never heard from them again.
