An accident right before his wedding
- Case Study
- 05 Aug 2017
Recently I received a call from a man from Weston in the Hunter Valley who was riding his motor bike through a round-about when he was hit by a car that didn’t give way and that drove off without stopping.
It couldn’t have come at a worse time for him because he was due to be married the following weekend. NRMA had rung and offered him $10,000 to settle. Fortunately before signing anything he rang me. I said I thought I could do a lot better than that and if I couldn't it wouldn’t cost him anything. I contacted the insurance company and within a fortnight they had upped their offer to $37,500 and in less than a month his case was settled for $50,000 with the insurance company paying all the legal costs.
This case is a good illustration of why, before you sign anything with an insurance company, you should always speak to us first. Our policy is that if we can’t improve on their best offer then we won’t charge you anything. So you have nothing to lose and everything to gain.
