Can anyone shed any light on this once and for all.
My daughter was involved in a drink drive incident last may and
she was subsequently fined and banned.
At the time i was concerned about the damage she had caused and would the insurance company cover the third party damages cost.
The duty solicitor informed me that the insurance company, under the road traffic act will cover all third party claims.
However 14 months later my daughter has received a letter from her insurance company wanting £1400
and threatening court action if she does not pay up.
They are saying her insurance cover had become void because of her being over the limit and she would be responsible for any third party claims,
they have paid out and are now looking to being reimbursed.
I have had a look online for any information relating to drink/drive incidents and insurance companies recovering their losses.
This seems a bit of a grey area and would appreciate any information relating to this.
