Just a question

 

If I am at fault with an accident where I called my insurance to lodge a claim and gave the 3rd party with the case number but the 3rd party hasn't made any claim for the last month is it a possibility to claim your excess back from your insurance?

 

 

 

If the guy never calls to lodge a claim with my insurance am I entitled to ask my insurance for a refund of my excess fee?

I’m a little bit confused as to why you’d call the insurance company and pay them money before anyone made a claim against you?

I thought I had to make a claim first and then give the case number for him to call his insurance or for his insurance to call my insurance.?

What Damage did you claim on?- you only pay an excess if the total claim is higher

 

When you lodge a claim you claim for damage to you, 

 

You can't make a claim for damage to others until they tell you what the damage is

3rd party insurance - I paid an excess of $300 and given him the case number for my insurance.

 

The damages was by myself.

 

The back of his car was dented when I hit him from behind.

It’s up to the other person if they want to claim or not. I am confused as to why you would pay an excess when the cost of the damage caused to their car has not been assessed yet. I suspect more to this story. Doesn’t sound quite right to me.

Who did you pay the excess to? I'd be surprised if the insurance company would request payment for the excess before receiving a claim. Ring them, I'm sure that they would refund your money if the other party has not made a claim.
