    from my experience, its down to the individual companies. Youre mate can pay the excess, but NU should then chase the other company for it and refund him. Others say pay nothing and if it goes 50/50 or your fault, you pay them the excess then.

    Default no fault accident

    I had same situation 2 months ago- white van man ran into me and admitted liability

    You have 2 options

    1) Claim on your own insurance- damage should be repaired within 14 days but you will have to pay the excess, and your no claims discount may be affected Your insurance company should seek to recover the costs from the 3rd party, if it does so it should refund your excess and reinstate your NCD

    2) Claim on the 3rd party's insurance. This took me 6 weeks from accident to repair of vehicle. Not one penny was paid by me, and my NCD is unaffected, although I was lucky in that the other party was insured, cooperated and admitted liability

    If he won't co-operate or wasnt insured it will be easier to pursue option 1.

    Good Luck

    Has anyone thought of contacting these no win no fee people when they have been run into the back of and get them to chase it all etc?

    Reason I ask is that I was run into the other week and do not want to claim off my insurance but off his. Rather then me chasing it all thought I might give this way a go.

    Thoughts?

    I believe, but not totally certain, that if you claim off 3rd party insurance, then you are legally bound to supply youre insurance details. This obviously doesnt apply to pedestrians and cyclists.
