Third Party Property Damage Claim (to other insurer)

  

1. Should I send my vehicle for damage repair at your panel repairer if I opt for Third Party Property Damage (TPPD) claim against third party’s insurer?

You may send your vehicle to your own preferred repairer but you are encouraged to approach our panel repairer.

2. What is Compensation for Assessed Repair Time (CART) claim?

CART is the new terminology for loss of use approved in accordance with Bank Negara Malaysia Guideline. You can claim for CART under TPPD claim against third party insurer for the loss of usage when your vehicle is garaged for repair. Assessed Repair Time indicates that the compensation is based on the independent loss adjuster’s assessment of the time required for repairs (not the number of days that your vehicle is in the workshop).

It shall exclude any delays, howsoever and/or by whomsoever caused, which may occur before and/or after the actual repair.

3. What is the difference between CART under own policy benefit and CART against third party insurer?

Insured can enjoy CART benefit by the payment of additional premium based on cover purchased on rate per day and number of days. Such benefit is similar to TPPD-CART as it shall be payable based on the loss adjuster’s assessment of the days required for actual repair but exclude any delays howsoever caused whether the claim for loss or damage to your vehicle is either lodged with us or against a third party.

In any dispute, the assessed repair time determined by us shall be final.

As for the insured’s third party claim on CART, it is subject to the principle of indemnity and any sums paid under this benefit will be subtracted from the said third party claim.

4. Will my NCD entitlement drop to zero with a single claim?

If you or anybody else meets with an incident that will give rise to a claim on this policy, the NCD entitlement that you have accumulated will drop to zero at the next renewal and your NCD will start all over again. If a claim is received after the NCD has been applied, we shall be entitled to recover the NCD given to you.

Exception to this Rule:

Your NCD will not be affected even if a claim is made if:

  • We are of the opinion that you are not at fault for causing the loss;
  • The offending vehicle is identifiable and is not a vehicle used for carriage of passengers for hire or reward (for example taxis, hire cars, public buses, stage buses, school buses and factory buses for hire);
  • The offending vehicle is insured by a Malaysian licensed insurer; and
  • There is no death or personal injury claim involved.

Third Party Property Damage Claim (against Kurnia/AmAssurance customer)

  

1. If I have a comprehensive policy, can I submit a claim on cost of repair through third party claim?

Yes. However, you are encouraged to submit your claim to your own insurance company for speedier processing. Thereafter, you can submit your third party claim for Compensation for Assessed Repair Time (CART), policy excess paid or under-insured paid.

2. How is the Compensation for Assessed Repair Time (CART) calculated?

CART is calculated based on the independent loss adjuster’s assessment of the time required for repairs and not based on the number of days that your vehicle is in the workshop. A standard scale of CART per day has been specified by PIAM as follows:

Private Use Vehicles Up to 1500cc RM30
Above 1500cc and up to 2000cc RM40
Above 2000cc RM50
Commercial Vehicles Up to 1 ton RM40
Above 1 tonne and up to 2 tonnes  RM60
Above 2 tonnes RM90
Trailer Lorries RM120
Buses (Private) RM90
Other Buses (Stage/Express) RM180
Taxi / Hire and Drive RM40
Motorcycles Up to 250cc RM10
Above 250cc RM15

3. Can I claim for car rental instead of CART in TPPD claim?

Yes, you may claim the cost of hiring a replacement vehicle of equivalent type and capacity for the recommended number of days of actual repair time. The car must be rented from a duly registered and licensed car rental agency. Make sure you submit the car rental agreement and receipt to substantiate the claims.
