In today’s Straits Times, “48 hours to access damage in third-party motor claims”, it mentioned
Motorists who file third-party insurance claims after an accident now have to contact the other driver’s insurer before getting their vehicle repaired.
The new rule by the Motor Insurance Taskforce is another attempt to clamp down on inflated and fraudulent claims
I will give more details about the protocol as below:
With effect from 1st May 2011, the Non Injury Motor Accident Protocol (NIMA) mandated by the Subordinate Courts of Singapore, to regulate and guide how road traffic motor accident claims are to be handled, has been amended to allow Insurers to carry out inspection to all damaged vehicles before repairs are carried out.
