What the citizens advice bureau say
If you have been in an accident that wasn’t your fault it is common for the Third-Party Insurers to contact you directly. They may offer to pay for the repair of your vehicle or offer you some compensation for any personal injury you may have suffered.
It’s important to remember that these insurance companies are not acting on your behalf, they are acting on behalf of their insured who has caused your accident and their shareholders.
