Recently our car was involved in a very minor bump.

Our driver was at fault ( although, only to avoid being rammed by a maniac in a van with a large trailer).

Anyway, the 3rd party has not informed her insurance company, nor our insurance. We have provided contact details for the lady, but no further contact has been made since the initial day of the accident.

They where apparently insured with direct line.

Our insurance has said it won't affect no claims if she does not report it.

Question, what is the time limit that the 3rd party must do something. Direct line website says two weeks (today actially), but I am not sure it that applies to non fault accidents.

Can the 3rd part still claim?

Kind regards
