If you have had a serious road accident in Cornwall and there has been extensive damage to your car, it may take you some time to be able to get back on the road. Cornwall is a remote area of the UK in some places, making it difficult to get around without a car. If you find that you are unable to get around easily whilst your car is damaged then you will want to get it repaired as quickly as possible, and there are various ways to do this.
You may be able to make road accident claims in Cornwall if you were injured in your accident, or borrow money from the bank or friends and family.
If you don’t have access to money right away and need to get your car fixed as soon as possible then you can always borrow money either from the bank or from friends and family. You should be able to get this money back from your insurance or compensation claim, so it is fairly risk free for someone to lend to you.
Make a compensation claim
Although this may not be the fastest way to get the money that you need, if it is your only option then it can be a great way to pay for the damage without having to worry about paying the money back or losing a no claims bonus.
Speak to your insurer
You may be able to pay for damage to your vehicle with your insurance, and then put this money back using the other person’s insurance when it is proved that they were at fault. Many insurers will also offer a courtesy car for some time until your car has been fixed.
