Insurance accepting liability without consent

So my girlfriend has recently been involved in a car crash which wasn't her fault - she was on a roundabout when a car pulled out in front of her cutting her up, and then he slammed his brakes on. As there was no time to react to this my girlfriend started braking but ended up going into the back of him regardless. It was her right of way as she was already on the roundabout, and he was driving recklessly by trying to pull out in front of her at speed. She submitted a statement to her insurers, along with a drawn diagram of the crash. She has denied all responsibility for the crash and rightfully so, however her insurance company have sent her an email saying they have accepted liability for the accident. I was just wondering if there is any sort of law surrounding this and if there is any other avenues we can explore to rectify this. Thanks in advance.
