Expert's Assistant chat
Customer: My son has crashed my car, he is listed on the insurance policy. He was speeding and a police vehicle was coming toward him, he panicked and hit the break as he hit the loose gravel, he lost control of the car and crashed into a hill on the side of road. Can I still claim insurance? The car is a write off.
JA: What state are you in? It matters because laws vary by location.
Customer: New Zealand
JA: What steps have you taken so far?
Customer: I have only had the car recovered and taken to a auto shop
JA: Is there anything else the Lawyer should know before I connect you? Rest assured that they'll be able to help you.
Customer: He has lost his license for excessive speed for 28 days

If your son was on the policy and there is no issue of alcohol or drugs, then you should still be covered by the insurance policy

Customer
No issue of drugs or alcohol. He is 17years old, on a restricted license and other than speeding he was driving to all conditions of his license
Customer
He is not being charged because he is still a youth. His speed was registered at 165km by the officer
