New initiative looks to protect drivers of non-fault accidents and reduce fraudulent claims
Mycamerawitness provides drivers involved in motor accidents with access to video footage which will demonstrate how a car has been driven and put an end to lengthy and stressful arguments around liability.
To help combat rising premiums, mycamerawitness has launched an innovative product to aid motorists. mycamerawitness is giving away Motorist Protection Packs worth up to £320 which include a specially designed state of the art high definition in-car camera, a hazard warning light, high visibility jacket and hazard warning triangle.
The in-car camera records and retains data about each car journey made by the driver. This footage can then be used to demonstrate how the car has been driven and will help insurers establish liability early and reduce claims cost, helping to lower insurance premiums.
Len Hope from mycamerawitness, said: ‘Insurance fraud is now becoming a major issue in the UK, and tactics such as staged accidents are driving up insurance premiums. Action needs to be taken now. The camera will help protect drivers against fraudsters and the millions that they cost legal drivers each year.
‘Any motorist that calls us to inform us of a non-fault accident in which they have been injured will receive one of our high tech cameras to ensure that they remain safe on the road in future.’ He continued.
The mycamerawitness system can be fitted simply and unobtrusively to most vehicles and records the vehicle’s progress on journeys – capturing any incidents involving other road users in order to support any claims made.
If a non-fault accident reported to mycamerawitness does not involve an injury, but a replacement car is provided, the driver will be provided with an effective tracker device for their car. The device sits discreetly inside the car and in the event of the car being stolen, it can be easily located by mycamerawitness. This aids with the recovery of the car, helping to protect a driver’s no claims bonus.For more of the latest industry news, click here.
