Accident Assistance has launched Commercial Accident Care, a new product unique to the credit hire industry, targeted at commercial vehicle drivers involved in accidents through no fault of their own.

This product will help guide drivers through the administrative minefield that can follow an accident, and will offer legal and financial compensation claims for uninsured losses and personal injury.

Commercial Accident Care can also help with the recovery of repair costs, policy excess and the reinstatement of no claims bonus, by claiming them from the driver at fault.

Gerald Grimes, sales director for Accident Assistance, said: “Commercial vehicle drivers have long been neglected by the credit hire industry. Yet they have a real need for assistance – particularly as a non-fault accident can often directly impact their ability to continue to earn a living.”
