Will an Automotive Accident Increase Your Insurance Rates? March 30, 2017

Will an Automotive Accident Increase Your Insurance Rates?, Madison, Wisconsin

Perhaps the most pressing question on all drivers’ minds after an automotive accident, once the initial commotion has passed, regards how the incident will affect their insurance rates. More importantly, will they stay the same or increase dramatically?  Below, ABRA Auto, a leading collision repair shop, addresses this common concern.

Automotive Accidents & Insurance Rates

automotiveDetermining how a collision will affect your rates isn’t always black and white. First, your insurance agent will look at your policy details. If you have accident forgiveness, your rates will likely not change for a first-time offense. If not, your agent will turn to other factors including your age and driving history as well as the severity of the incident and who was at fault.

Your agent may then increase your rate if they deem you a high-risk driver. The adjustment, however, will depend on your provider. If you see a significant spike, don’t worry. Your rate will decrease after a predetermined period, as long as you’re not involved in another automotive accident before then.
