Third Party Intervention
Slash Third-Party costs
AAMC’s Third Party Intervention (TPI) service is a key component of our Repair Management suite. It can be offered as a stand-alone strategy to tackle the high cost of third party demands.
Our TPI processes effectively reduce costs on third party demands by up to 60% when compared with a passive reactionary model.
From the moment a motor vehicle accident occurs and a not-at-fault party is identified, our focus is on proactive intervention and ensuring the third party’s vehicle is allocated the correct reinstatement path.
Taking care of all the finer details — including third party property damage caused
Once an accident occurs, and a not-at-fault third party is identified, be proactive and don’t leave the cost of damage to chance.
AAMC’s TPI team can manage all aspects of the third party’s damage including the repair through our national network of partnered repairers, a hire car if required, any towing required and if the vehicle is a total loss, arranging the assessment and disposal of the vehicle’s salvage.
This, in turn, ensures quality, timeliness and cost containment, allowing you the best possible control on third party claims, whilst increasing efficiencies within your claims team as AAMC take care of contact and interaction with the third party.
AAMC is committed to achieving outcomes for our clients that ensure quality, cost and timeliness are always the priority.

Third Party Intervention, sometimes referred to Proactive Third-Party Management is assisting in the re-instatement of damaged property caused by an at-fault insured in a motor accident. The service is initiated immediately following first notification of loss by the at-fault party, to their insurer. The model involves direct contact and digital interaction with the not-at-fault party on behalf of the insurer to advise that a claim has been lodged, the insurer accepts that the third party is deemed not at fault and that AAMC, on behalf of the insurer will be coordinating all aspects of repairs to the damaged vehicle. This includes arranging a replacement or hire vehicle if required, facilitating the transportation of non-drive-able vehicles to partnered repairers and the disposal of the vehicle if deemed a total loss.
An immediate, pro-active response will provide control over the various cost drivers associated with damaged third-party motor vehicles when compared to little or no control in a re-active approach. Through the TPI model an insurer can influence where and how the vehicle is repaired (through high quality and cost-effective partnered repairers), ensure hire cars are provided at competitive rates for only when the vehicle is off-road, and minimise the involvement of specialist expensive third party recovery agents acting on behalf of not-at-fault parties.
The key benefits are maximised control over third party repair and hire car costs, avoiding recovery actions from not-at-fault parties that may include inflated demands and negating expensive legal costs associated with recovery agents. A pro-active, customer focused approach also enhances the insurers brand reputation and can have a positive influence one where a satisfied third party chooses to insure their vehicle.
