Default Notify current insurance about previous policies 'dismissed' claim?

Hi all,

Hunting high and low for any info on this, to no avail.

After renewing my insurance I had a claim made against me which fell under my old policy (different company).

The claim went to court and was dismissed, so no claim was 'won' against my previous insurers.

Am i required to inform my current insurers of the dismissed claim against my previous policy? The (Hastings) policy is a little vague, and makes no mention of a dismissed claim.

I don't want to invalidate my policy, but also I don't want to flag it up/increase my premium if it's not necessary.

Any experience? TIA

it was dismissed therefore no claim. as far as i know a claim is only valid if a pay out is made.

best ask your new insurers to be sure.

They usually ask for any accidents that you've been involved in, in any vehicle under any policy in the last 5 years.

If it falls under this then declare it. Otherwise I'd say you're ok.
