Donoghue Solicitors is a specialist compensation claims law firm which can help if you want to recover your policy excess in your road accident claim.

What is a policy excess?

The policy excess is the amount of money your insurers expect you to contribute when claiming on your policy. People with car accident claims can choose to have their vehicle repaired with their own insurer or independently. If they allow their insurers to deal with the repairs, often the insurers will ask the accident victim to contribute to the cost of repairs.

Donoghue Solicitors can help recover this amount, known as the ‘policy excess’, from those responsible for the accident.

How do I arrange recovery of policy excess in vehicle accident claims?

To include the policy excess within your claim, your personal injury solicitor will need proof, usually in the form of the receipt from the repairing garage. Sometimes this will be provided by your insurers, but usually you will be asked by the repairing garage to pay the contribution and claim it back, so will have a receipt from them which you can give to your lawyer.
