    I've recently had a car accident a month ago, which was the other cars fault. My car is on finance (car loan) and has been for about a year, finance is around 30 grand but now my vehicle is not road worthy and the car insurance company is only offering to pay $12,000? And is wanting there accident replacement car back! Which will leave me with a half paid finance and a broken car? Which leave me with a bill. What do I do? I need help.

    Hi James,

    Read your policy.
    If the accident wasn’t your fault you may be able to use a credit hire company rather than your insurance company.The claims process will be easier to understand if you know the details of your coverage and your responsibilities.
