I am split between ignoring them till my car insurance company gets in touch with me or to inform my insurance company but I am worried the second will affect my renewal that is due in a couple of months.
One last question please, is it legally acceptable for a driver to inform his car insurance company about an accident but opt to open the repair claim itself with another claims management company?
You may run into an issue if you inform your insurers and they say they think you're at fault. You then go to a claims management company saying you are the innocent party and when the claims company goes to claim off of the Third Party Insurers they advise your insurers have already admitted full liability and settled their claim. In this scenario you may end up paying the inflated rates of the accident management company.
