Accident Paid by Cheque


Hi Rose,
If the other person doesn't want a cheque I am guessing they want cash? It's possible that this person might try and commit fraud by putting it through insurance but still collect cash from you. You want to be careful that this is not the case.

The other person has the right to put the claim through insurance if they want to. And that will impact your rates.

If you do give the other party cash, you should also get a signed receipt from them stating that you have paid for the damages in cash. And keep it for a few years, just in case. Then if they report the accident, you have proof of what they have done.

Good luck with this!
