Survey: Four in 10 would not claim for minor traffic collision
A new survey shows that more than 40% of people will not claim on their car insurance if they are involved in a minor collision.
The poll was conducted among 7,500 motorists by the AA.
The three main reasons given for not claiming were the fear of affecting a no-claims discount, concerns over rising premiums and the belief that it was not financially worth it.
However, nearly three quarters of people who said if they were in a 'moderate to serious' crash said they would make a claim.
Up to 19% of those polled said they had been in a collision while driving over the past ten years, and 37% of those said it was all their fault.
