Total loss likely for this 21 plate Volvo V60
The last thing you need in January is a non-fault accident that could write off your car. Unfortunately for the owner of this brand new Volvo V60, that’s exactly what happened a couple of weeks ago when their car was hit from behind by a BMW at some speed. Looking at the photograph below from the scene of the accident, it was clear that the damage would be significant and even could be declared a total loss by the insurers.
Thankfully here at Non-Fault Car Accident Repair, we were able to get the client into a Volvo 4×4 hire car within 24 hours of the accident. The car was delivered to us at our workshop in Chesham where we also operate our car body repair services that you know as Car Magic.
From our experience, we could see that it looked like this could be a total loss claim. For the owner of a brand new 2021 plate car, is not only devastating but also inconvenient and stressful. A full engineers report would need to be completed on the car in order to determine the estimate repair costs which was the process we kicked into gear as soon as the owner was setup with a like-for-like replacement car.
Accident on the A41
This non-fault accident happened on the A41 which local people will know well as a main bypass between the M25 and Aylebury, Buckinghamshire. The road has no speed cameras and some short slip roads which are known for causing all sorts of issues for drivers on this dual carriageway. We’re not sure of the events that led to this incident between the Volvo V60 and the BMW, but it does serve as a reminder to always be aware of the road conditions, the levels of traffic and your own speed. Even the most experienced of drivers make mistakes!
