Car Insurance for Drivers with Claims
Struggling to Find Cheap Car Insurance After an Accident or Claim? Let Us Help!
- Great value insurance for drivers with previous at fault claims
- Affordable policies for drivers that have lost their No Claims Bonus
- Specialist cover for motorists that also have driving convictions
Drivers with previous at fault claims can be hit from several different directions when it’s time to renew their insurance. For a start, unless they were paying to protect it, their no-claims bonus will have been reduced or lost entirely. That immediately raises the cost of their insurance for the following year.
Many drivers find themselves being penalised by insurance companies for having to claim for unfortunate situations that don’t necessarily reflect their driving, such as vandalism, theft or an accident where they were unable to claim from another driver.
Drivers that have been unlucky enough to make two claims in quick succession, can find premiums rising enormously, they may even find it difficult to get car insurance at all.
If any of this sounds like you, read on – help is at hand.
How Complete Cover Group Finds Insurance for Drivers with Previous Claims
At Complete Cover Group, we don’t judge drivers by a set of computer-based rules. Our skilled and experienced brokers will look at you as an individual, find out about your previous claims, and work with our panel of specialist insures to find you affordable cover.
The number of previous claims you have made, and how much they paid out, count for a lot when a car insurance company is calculating your premium – but having a car declared a write-off or a total loss, is a different thing to having had a couple of bumps in the supermarket car park.
So, if you have previous claims that are stopping you finding fairly priced insurance, take advantage of our in-depth knowledge of the market, and get extremely competitive insurance, despite your claims.

We’re also experts at finding cover for drivers with motoring convictions, so if your search for insurance has been complicated further by having points on your licence, we can still help keep you on the road with the best value cover we can find.
How Long Does a Claim Affect My Car Insurance For?
The effect will be worst in the first year following a claim and should diminish each year afterwards, as your no-claims bonus starts to build up again.
You’ll have to remember to declare any claims whenever you apply for insurance in the next few years – insurance companies vary, but they usually want to know about claims in the last three or sometimes five years.
