Very interesting, I would fully expect that the 3rd party were in touch with my insurance the day after the accident took place and by the time I received the indemnity the claim was well under way. In terms contact between the 3rd party and myself direct there has been none.I see, i was only questioning as I’ve had similar situation 6 months ago now where I informed admiral of a potential claim against my insurance, But they got back to me saying that the claim had been settled and that they hadn’t paid out. I wonder if they had any contact with you whilst you were waiting for the indemnity form?
As for the 3rd party themselves, I wasn’t even made aware of what exactly their claim consisted of until today, 1 year later. I have requested a breakdown of costs but admiral have suggested that won’t be possible until the claim has been paid out. They’ve also said there’s no chance they’ll be paying out £26k as requested by the 3rd Party solicitor but it’ll be interesting to see if they stick to this statement or not.
