Car Rentals in Africa

Anyone have experience having to claim a hit and run using their credit card? When I book the vehicle on the Avis site the cdw option is already checked off and I can't decline this and seems like it's like that all over South Africa Is there a way for my cc to accept my claim/What can I do?

You already rented and got into an accident or this is hypothetical?

I got charged for damage that I didn't do to the car when renting a car in South Africa. I had declined insurance with the rental agency had no issues claiming it on my credit card (Scotia Passport).
