Hi there I'm wondering if someone can help me. I've got a claim going for my car insurance its a write off but I haven't had a settlement figure and the hire car is due back this Wednesday. I live in a village and need a car to get around, I haven't got use of another vehicle. Will I be liable for the charges of the hire car after my 14 days?

 

Thanks please help me my time is running out

Yes you will be. Unless you have a third party Insurers who have admitted responsibility for their driver causing an accident and they have agreed to pay hire costs beyond 14 days.

 

Suggest that you contact the Insurers to see what you can do. You will probably need to sort out your own hire car.


We could do with some help from you.

Thanks for the advice, just got off phone again second time today and their reply is always the say "you should receive a phone call off the engineer by the end of today" No third party involved, put a claim in for bodywork but has been written off! Do they have a deadline for the amount of time it takes to sort it out! I've been waiting for the insurers to call me back for over a week! So I just got to plod along and find a new car with no car or no settlement figure!

It is probably going to take a few weeks more, before any settlement of the claim is agreed and sent to you. You might be lucky to receive the money in time for Xmas. Suggest that you get researching the market value of the car and to provide this to Insurers, explaining that you need to have this settled asap, as where you live you need a car, so you can get to work etc. You don't have to accept Insurers first market value offer, but if you decline, it will delay the settlement of the claim.
