    Default my car got hurt today.

    was travelling down the road today when a female driver pulled onto my side of the road to avoid parked cars tried to squeeze past and smashed my mirror there is a nice red scrape down the casing too. her fella rang and tried to say he was going to sort his out without insurance, wanted me to do the same too,,, "noo way i cant afford that and it was your wifes fault anyway".. so insurance is now involved. i was not happy when it happened to say the least, my missus was going stay calm stay calm its only a wing mirror..!! chriss knott putting me onto drive assist on monday.. has anybody dealt with these before?

    i used to work for drive assist, i delivered the courtesy car's and you should get a like for like car, this is very expensive so will make the other party pay out quickly as it can run into 1000's over a couple of week's...

    So annoying when this sort of thing happens. At least you got details, did she stop or did you go off registration? Assume you're no claims are protected, otherwise you might get hammered next renewal. I got dropped from 7+ NCB to 2 years. Thought I was safe not protecting as in last 30 yrs not had an at fault accident - big mistake!

    Drive Assist are a 'non-fault' claims company. In short, the other driver has either been found at fault or has admitted fault and so your insurer has sold your claim to Drive Assist. This should prevent any claim appearing against you.
    DA should contact you and if you agree they'll have you put your car in for repair and supply a hire car while your car is under repair.... all costs would be met by the insurer of the other party (the mirror murderer).

    yeah exactly what i thought, the lady at chris knott said it would be deemed unroadworthy because i couldnt see out of the mirror. i told her that i could sort of see, i just needed to choose a bit of mirror to look into

    lol @ (the mirror murderer)

    but yeah could have been worse. i told the bloke on the phone about £100 + he started saying well you can get a casing for about £15 etc.. errr its your wifes fault..
