when they ask for v5 and that time i saw that my name in the v5 and i told that i gifted the car to my dad but my dad was busy to put the name in v5

i bought car in 2010 and i paid for the car so i put my name on it but every time we buy the insurance i put my dad name as the owner as i told my dad i am payng but i am giving u gift but last month i had an accident and now i am injured and i got the courtesy car and i saw that the owner name is ***** ***** in policy my dad is the owner?

can you please tell me what i do to get out of this please?

Expert:  UK-Justice replied 4 years ago.
It is possible they will void any claim.
This is because when your dad insures the car they ask who the owner is - I assume he said he was rather than you.
Therefore you need to see what they do.
If they refuse to pay out because the details are wrong then you can make a formal corporate complaint.
They will then look into it and report back to you.
If that goes against you, you can go to the Ombudsman,.
They are free, independent and can investigate your complaint.
They can be found at:
www.financial-ombudsman.org.uk
If the Ombudsman finds against you then that is the end of the matter.
If the Ombudsman finds for you, then the insurance company will pay out.
But these are the steps you should take if they refuse to pay.
I hope this helps.

You could notify them now which shows willing - but of course this may alert them to the fact they could reject the claim.............

Expert:  UK-Justice replied 4 years ago.
I can not tell you what to do.
It is a matter for you.
If it were me I would call the insurance people and explain.
But you risk them voiding your claim.
But it is a matter for you - but that is what I would do.

so u think i should call them and say that i had made a mistake of putting my dad name instead of my ?

and if they say when u get the document why u didint inform that time what i say them?

what i do please i am just stuck in the middle

my dad s saying if we wait for the insurance reply then we tell them that we thought we wrote my son name and now we see that my name is ***** ***** policy as owner of the car?

we say that in the policy it says that a person who pay for the premium is the proposer owner of the car,thats correct as i pay for the insurance and not my dad

this will make some thing

if i say in the policy it says the owner of the car is the policy holder or proposer

if this it says means what?/

sorry but i need the solution thats why i am asking u again and again
