Non-Fault Accident Repairs in Burgess Hill, Brighton and the Surrounding Areas

Did you know that even if you aren’t at fault in an accident, you could still see an increase in your annual premium when you come to renew? The data used by insurance companies shows that a driver involved in a non-fault accident is statistically more likely to be involved in an at-fault accident at some point in the future. Bumpers Body Shop strongly recommends that you have car body repairs undertaken by an accident management specialist.

Located in Burgess Hill, we specialise in non-fault accident repairs. Covering all Surrey and West Sussex areas, including Brighton, Hassocks, Haywards Heath and Hove, we offer a reassuring accident management service and claim directly from the insurance company of the at-fault third party.

The way you react after a non-fault accident can help support any claims and we strongly advise that you action the following steps:

  • Exchange details with all involved parties. Involve the police if another driver refuses to give you the information you need
  • Take photographs of the vehicles and of the road where the accident happened before moving your car to a safer area
  • Write down the contact details of witnesses so that we can help prove liability through our accident management service

With this information to hand, Bumpers Body Shop can then process non-fault accident repairs successfully and liaise with the assessors from third-party insurance companies on your behalf. Use us for accident management and you will only ever need to deal with our company, not anybody else.

After a Non-Fault Accident

Never drive your car after having an accident if it isn’t roadworthy. We advise motorists from Burgess Hill and the surrounding Brighton, Hassocks, Haywards Heath and Hove areas to contact us as soon as possible to discuss non-fault accident repairs, and to arrange an estimate for the required work. If you have no choice but to drive, it is imperative that the damaged bodywork won’t be hazardous to you, your passengers, other drivers and pedestrians.

At the very least, make sure all lights and indicators still work, that the wing mirrors are both intact, and carry out a visual check for leaking fluids.

Over the following days, never talk to third-party insurance companies about car body repairs. Leave us to communicate with them instead. Insurers will always look for the cheapest resolution and if you have non-fault accident repairs undertaken at a workshop you aren’t familiar with, you lose access to accident management services, run the risk of a low-end repair and, as already stated, you will almost certainly see a rise in your annual premium.

Choosing an Accident Management Specialist

With more than 50 years of combined team experience, Bumpers Body Shop has successfully managed non-fault accident repairs for hundreds of clients in Brighton, Hassocks, Haywards Heath, Hove and the surrounding areas. We find that most insurance companies will want to send your car to a repairer in their approved network, but do you really want to put your car into the hands of a company that is only recommended because they offer preferential rates to the insurer in question or can manage a high turnover of work?

You have the right to choose your own repairer, even if an insurer puts you under pressure to use their own network. Our workshop in Burgess Hill is one that has earned the trust of motorists from the Surrey and West Sussex areas by managing their claims in a timely, considerate and professional manner.
