Documents needed

Drivers License 

A valid driver’s license must be submitted. The information provided on the driver’s license should match the details provided on the claim form.

Estimate

The estimate is a crucial document in the claims process as it facilitates the settlement of the client’s claim. It must be presented on the company’s official letterhead, stamped and include the repairer’s name, address, and contact number(s). The estimate should include the following information:

  • List of parts requiring replacement
  • List of parts needing repair
  • Cost of replacing the parts
  • Labor cost for repairing or replacing the parts
  • Date of estimate preparation

 

Picture of damages

Upon reporting a claim and if the vehicle remains drivable, it is necessary to capture photographs of the damages.

Guidelines for taking pictures:

  1. Capture the entire front of the vehicle, ensuring that the number plate is clearly visible.
  2. Include the complete area that has sustained damage on the vehicle.
  3. If possible, take photos of the engine and chassis number of the vehicle.
  4. Capture clear images of the damages, with a focus on the parts listed in the estimate

Additional Documents

Statements

In instances where liability is not straightforward and statements are required, to assist in determining liability these can be requested from the Insured, Third Parties, passengers of either vehicle, or bystanders/onlookers.

It’s always advised that these statements be requested when the claim has just occurred and the information is fresh in the minds of the relevant parties.

Police Report

Once there are major injuries stated on the claim form, a Police Report is to be requested from the relevant authorities.

These major injuries may be a result of the following type of accidents:

  • Oncoming vehicles with head-on impact
  • Actual or constructive total loss of the Insured or third Party vehicles
  • Moderate/substantial damage to the Insured’s vehicle with the involvement of a motorcyclist, cyclist, or pedestrian
  • The presence of Police and ambulance services at the scene of the accident
  • Several passengers in either the Insured or Third Party vehicles
  • Single-vehicle accidents with several occupants (especially where occupants are not family members)
