  1. I am new to your forum and really would appreciate any advice or tips you can give me on the following:- I have been with Swinton Brokers for three years and have renewed my car insurance with them during that period. Last year they renewed it with Aviva at a cheaper price when I complained about the hike in the premium. Two months ago i had a car accident which Aviva judged to be a no fault claim on myside. AI Claims Solution then contacted me initally to arrange hired car but then told me they were taking over the case. I am in a protracted battle with AI Solutions over the poor repair to my car, damage that their network garage caused whilst the car was in their care which i part witnessed and the fact that my car is still unroadworthy as a result of both things. AI Solutions are trying to say all the problems with my car are pre-existing conditions. my car was serviced and MOT 5-6 weeks before the incident. the garage who service my car are prepared to write a letter to say that there were no problems with my car. I had an independent mechanic inspection as agreed with AI Solutions -who knew who ( reputable national firm) was doing it and on what date. They are not happy with the inspection result and are still refusing to repair the damages as listed. I contacted Aviva who refused to intervene even though my insurance policy is with them and have now informed me that they had not directed AI Solutions to take over my case. The third party in the car incident are also with Aviva. I have contact Swinton Brokers who have explained to me that AI Solutions are part of the insurance deal that I took out and Aviva underwrite them. Swinton Brokers have refused to get involved at all and their head office whilst talking to me told me they had emailed my local broker with instructions of what to do. Turns out those instructions were to do nothing that it is up to AI Solutions. I have legal protection with my car insurance package. Legal Advice i have now found out is on the same tel number as for AI Solutions and I can only have access to it when AI Solutions agree to it. I spoke to the legal firm about my situation who sought permission from AI Solutions to advise me. It was denied. AI Solutions told me that the other party had taken full liability for the incident ( in writing) but when I talked to Aviva they told me that the third party are contesting it and seeking a 70/30 result. i have reported this to AI Solutions who have told me they are going to contest it. AI Solutions have told me they have not received my incident form twice now and have asked me to refill the form in for a third time -I will and send it by recorded delivery this time! I have been emailing AI Solutions complaints department where I had lodged a formal complaint. they will verbally tell me one thing but when I push them they write something completely different. They have written that the independent garage inspection that i had undertaken with their agreement and knowledge is not independent because in their eyes the garage have included items on the inspection that are not a direct result of the accident. I have notified the garage who undertook the inspection They are not happy and will be contacting AI Solutions about their allegations. I have written to Ai Soutions staitng that i am concerned that AI Soutions have a conflict of interest due to the fact that they are also responsible for the garage that casued further dmage. Avia have a conflict of interest as bothe aprties i nthe incident are insured with them -so all the costs will go to Aviva. i contacted the Ombudsman who gave me a reference number and I have notified AI Solutions and Swinton Brokers of this fact. Now AI Solutions have agreed to:- Another garage of my choice assessing my car for the reason why it is still pulling to the left; replacement of 2/4 tyres as their own network garage drove my car constantly miles and miles from the scene of the accident repeatedly and have damaged the tyres - they also swopped the tyres round hence damage to all four. They have also agreed to repair two other items listed on the inspection report. I am still driving a hired car. I have asked in writing for AI Solution to tell when they will be completing the repairs on my car, including all works as detailed in the independent inspection report that they have a copy of ple the replacemt of all four tyres that are damaged. I have a feeling they won't do it all. The garage who is doing the repairs has promised to keep me closely informed. I understand that AI Solutions, Aviva, Swintons Brokers and Silver Back Rymer (legal firm) are all a part of Quindells. Where do I stand with the Ombudsman if only part of the repairs are undertaken but not all? What other actions should I be taking? Really would appreciate any advice that you can offer. Many thanks.
