    Hi guys,

    My partner is currently going through a really complicated and lengthy claim with the AA, this involves their legal representatives etc (Non fault) but has been an absolute nightmare from day 1 (The accident happened early July) she is still waiting for a settlement offer etc. She has just had a renewal document through but does not want to stay with them due to all the hassle that she's been through.

    The question is, can she move to another insurance company whilst this claim is still ongoing without any problems? It's been confirmed as a non fault accident but no final offer has been made as yet. So she is worried about being liable for the legal fees if she doesn't renew?

    Any help would be appreciated.

    I'm no legal eagle, but you are under no obligation to renew with the AA. They will still have to honour your claim if you move to another insurer.

    It would be sort of mental to assume that they would not be required to finish your claim. It happened while you were insured with them in the first place – maybe now you want something different, but that does not mean that they can just get away from honouring the claim in the first place. You can look around

    Rest assured she can continue the claim even if she changes insurers. The incident occurred whilst she was insured with the AA so they must see it through to some natural conclusion. Before moving I would ensure she has it in writing that the claim is non-fault and she will still receive her no claims discount. If not the AA could knock off 2 years affecting her premium with the next company. She would then have to complete the AA claim, claim back her missing no claims discount then claim a part refund from her new insurer. Very messy. Make sure also that the accident is recorded on the national database as non-fault. This way she'll get no nasty surprises from the new insurer.

    She's more than entitled to, in fact I'd encourage it. Be sure to get confirmation of no-claims, dates of any accidents that have recorded in the last 5 years with disclosure of liability, most importantly for the accident that's yet to be settled.
