Thanks all!

Aye, insurance has been 'notified' of the accident as per the rules, but I had said I was pending a possible claim.

Think what I may do is have it privately checked over first then, as if I'm a lucky begger and the reinforcement bar is all thats bent, it will probably work out cheaper fixing that one part privately and just putting up with the bumper scuffs :/

I had a similar accident 3 years ago, same scenario in a different car. Annoying thing is my premiums went sky high for making a claim, even though it was non-fault..

Now this time around I do have dash cam evidence that I was hit from behind, obviously the cam faces forward so It doesnt capture who actually impacts me. But may help. Sucky though, premiums seem to rise just for speaking to the insurance these days haha!

Cheers all.
