CLAIMS GUIDE

Own Damage Claim

Own damage claim occurs when your vehicle met an accident due to your own negligence and you have decided not to pay from your own pocket due to exorbitant cost of repair to your vehicle. Since comprehensive policy covers your own damage, you might want to make a claim from your comprehensive policy under your own insurer.

1% of the claim amount will be imposed.
