We're actually pretty good with paying out claims. The only down-side to this is that more claims tend to get resolved as at-fault, which as you know, are the type of claims that you don't want on your history. Sometimes it's better to have an ins-co who are reluctant to open their own purse strings, as it means they're more likely to keep pursuing the other party's ins-co until they pay up, resulting in a non-fault for you. You have to be patient for this to work however as it often takes a very long time to resolve, and can often look and feel like you've been abandoned by your ins-co.
