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 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 e.g. driving a car that's been involved in a collision for a long period of time might cause further damage or deterioration. Additional damages that occur after the accident will not be covered in the initial claim.
2) As time passes, Bingle's ability to assess your car's damage and investigate the responsible driver may be compromised.
3) Come renewal time, Bingle will not be able to cover your car if there is pre-existing damage.
