It is always a good idea to lodge a claim as soon as possible after an accident.
Some of the reasons why this is a good idea:
1) The details are still fresh in your mind. The more information you can accurately give to Bingle regarding the accident, the better we can represent you if there is any liability dispute.
2) Avoiding further damage to your car.
For example, if you continue to drive your car that's been involved in a collision and it hasn’t been repaired after a long period of time, this might cause further damage or deterioration. Additional damages that occur after the accident will not be covered under the initial claim.
3) Bingle's ability to assess the damage to your car and investigate the responsible driver may be compromised the longer you take to lodge a claim.
4) When your policy is due for renewal, Bingle will not be able to continue cover for your car if there is pre-existing damage.
