In any arbitration set up by the agreement, we will pay: the arbitrator s fees the cost of recording the evidence, and the cost of hiring a place for the arbitration.
14 12 If you have a complaint Step one If you have a complaint, the first thing you should do is talk to someone at an NRMA Office or talk directly to the department concerned. If you let a staff member know what the problem is, they may be able to resolve the issue. If not, they will be able to refer you to the appropriate person within NRMA Insurance. In this way your complaint will reach the right person. In the majority of cases, our customers are able to resolve things in the office or department where the complaint originated. However, if you are not satisfied with the outcome, you can contact our Customer Relations department. Step two Customer Relations will act as a mediator between you and NRMA Insurance. When you go to them they will: identify the main issues of your complaint ask the appropriate manager to review and explain any decision made make sure that the correct procedures have been followed, and set out a course of action to achieve a joint solution. In a small number of cases, a joint solution may not be reached. If this happens, there are a number of bodies you can go to outside NRMA Insurance to have your decision reviewed, including external review panels and Courts.
15 13 Step three Most external review panels will only deal with your complaint if you have already exhausted all avenues within NRMA Insurance. Our Customer Relations department can advise you of the various review panels or other options available. Seeking advice can be helpful as insurance disputes are sometimes quite complex and the options available to you can be varied. For example, if your complaint is an unresolved claims dispute, our Customer Relations department will be able to give you information about external bodies such as the Claims Review Panel or the Consumer Claims Tribunal. You will then be able to decide which one best suits your needs. A Customer Relations staff member will be happy to advise you in this area. Remember, if NRMA Insurance has been unable to help you, someone outside the organisation may be able to.
