Any claims made against your insurance company can result in an increase in your premium. If it’s just a scrape, it would be better to lodge with the person with an out of pocket payment if at all possible. Be sure to get a quote with the person (both parties present at time of quote).

Will the insurance premium increase when you file a claim for collision in hit and run case and do not know who hit the car?
It should not affect your rates. However, if you have several hit-and run claims, they’re going to commence investigating. ResponseActually, I was in a hit and run and my insurance company used my collision insurance to cover the total loss of my car. SO… now when I go to “shop around”, my underwriters report shows only this: Collision Reimbursement: $Five,919. As a result my insurance rates are very high. There are no surcharges because I was not “at fault” but the rates themselves are higher than normal. I’m attempting to figure out how to “re-categorized” the claim under the “uninsured motorist” claim so that my rates will be normal. It’s a nightmare. beware! My spouse was the pedestrian in a hit and run and required $25000 in medical damages. Health Insurance wouldn’t pay so we used no fault. No other moving violations or claims were on our insurance. After the pay out (1yr later) the rates quadrupled. It was ridiculous. We had a fresh car payment at the time and had to have total coverage. Everywhere we went that $25000 claim erased the good quotes we originally received with all insurance carriers. Even when we explained there was no moving disturbance on our part the spouse was a pedestrian crossing the street at the corner in the middle of the day. It took Five years after the payout for the rates to go down. Terrible practice and that was just part of the financial end. Lost wages, permanent harm…
Will your insurance premiums increase if you make a claim after an accident that wasn’t your fault?
Insurance premiums .
This is a difficult question to response, because indeed it depends on your carrier and, possibly, California laws that govern this sort of thing..
Most likely, your carrier will consider this a “collision” loss, since your truck struck the cinder block (as opposed to a “comprehensive” loss, which among other things would include the cinder block flying off another vehicle and landing on your truck). Collision losses can result in rate revision, but not necessarily..
If you make a claim for your damages, and your carrier understands that you were incapable to avoid the cinder block, they very likely won’t find you at-fault for this loss. So, how do you persuade them that you couldn’t avoid the cinder block? Mention the traffic around you; if you swerved, would you have caused a more serious accident involving another vehicle? Were you coming up over a rise, or were you traveling into the sun? Would attempting to avoid the cinder block have made you hit a concrete barrier, or possibly go off the road? Likewise, it would not be in your best interest to mention you were talking on a cell phone or lighting a cigarette when all of a sudden you eyed the cinder block and hit it..
Once you make your claim, don’t rely on the claim adjuster to advise you on whether your rates will increase or not. The adjuster won’t be able to help you (and for good reason. Claim departments and underwriting are kept separate so that claims treating is not influenced by the “business side” of things. Also, the claim adjuster may tell you it won’t affect your rates, and then a while later you get a regular rate revision — accident or not — and you’re left wondering why your rates enlargened when you were told they wouldn’t)..
Instead, ask to speak with underwriting or have your agent ask for you. Some companies have thresholds for collision losses — anywhere from $500 to $1,500 — and don’t review for rate increases for losses under that amount. And, again, finding you not at-fault would be helpful..
Hope that helps.

Can someone go and buy insurance from another agency instantly after an accident to avoid the increase in the insurance premium?
Many people do this, but it is not recommended. It is still considered an attempt to defraud. I recommend that you use this situation to check around for cheaper insurance with the fresh accident as a part of your quote. Some insurance agents will pull your record and not see it, and not include it in the quote, you may fly under the radar for that very first year, and love a lower premium, but let that be something that they do. Just be careful with disclosure laws, many insurance companies deny claims when people leave things out.
Do premiums increase when you have a comprehensive claim?
Generally no, but it depends on how your policy is set up and how many claims you file a year.

If your car was bruised in a parking lot but you did not notice the harm until you got home should you inform your insurance carrier and will your premium increase if you do?
Whether or not you report it is up to you . Things to consider- 1Your age – if youre youthful or old the carrier may hold it against you 2Your company -some companies will hold it against you some wont, ask an insurance agent who sells that brand of insurance other than your agent, don’t give then your correct name when you ask , the agents often supply even general information to the companies when theres a claim or not and you may end up with a rate increase even tho’ you don’t file a claim.For example I knkow of a case where an insurance company raised the auto policy rate over $1000 when they got an virginal inquiry as to how much it would cost to add a teenage driver who did not even have their permit yet. Unnecessary to say the policy holder dropped the insurance company like a rock , and did not pay the thieves their $1000 plus increase. Three How long you have had the insurance and how many claims you have had dictate whether or not to file , A brief period with that company or a lot of claims (your fault or not may boost your rate or cause them to cancel you) Four The harm involved and your deductable ( if its a puny claim you may be money ahead not claiming it because of the puny amount they would cover if the claim only exceeds the deductable by a puny amount ) and you may be able to get it motionless for less money by not going thru the insurance company- reason being that the assets shops boost the repair cost because no matter whatthe claim is the insurance companies never want to pay the real and reasonable repair cost- they always “discount it ” – they never discount your rate thougResponse – PS One other thing I left behind to mention in my answer_Do you know who did the harm, if so file the claim against their insurance company _ If you don’t know explain to the owners of the mall/ and police that this happened and you want to view the surveillance tapes of the parking lot for thattime period to see if you can determine who did the harm -That way your insurance wont go up. – As far as points go “Points ” are usually assigned for moving violations- however , again check with another agent for the same insurance company as I described earlier , not for claims which are not your fault.The only way this could be your fault is if you were for exaple illegally parked, not parked within the lines , parked too close to the vehicle whichdamaged yours etc. For example and I know this sounds unbelievable but its true – I know of a case where some one hit and sideswiped a parked carthe person who was driving stopped, and checked the vehicle they hit noticingthat it was parked 22 inches from the curb, by law in that state it must be within Eighteen inches. The driver notified the police, had them investigate theaccident , issue a ticket to the parked car for being illegally parked(too far from curb) and the holder of the parked car had to not only pay for the harm to their own car but also for the harm to the vehicle which hit them.To note the vehichle which was struck was not sticking out in the traffic lane any more than the vehicles ahead of or behind it , but legally it was too far from the curb when the driver hit it and therefore was liable for thedamage done to the other vehicle involved.
Will your premium increase in the ratio of the amount insurance is paying to fix the car whether it is your fault or not?
Some insurance companies have “accident forgiveness” and others don’t. Even if an accident is not your fault, you are now viewed as a higher risk. You may be able to cancel the claim and fix the harm yourself, but you should do the math very first. Figure out the cost of repair versus the difference in your monthly bill for Three years. Take the road with the lower cost to you..

Do car insurance premiums increase after a comprehensive claim for hitting a deer?
Generally YES, they do increase, being that there is no “third party” so-to-speak in which the insurer can subrograte against. .
I say no, it is a comp claim and doesn’t count against the driver. If the driver was cited for the incident, then they would go up.
What can you do if you were ticketed in an accident and found not guilty in court but your insurance company had already paid the other driver’s claim and enhanced your premium?
You will need to open a consumer complaint with ChoicePoint and get the accident fault indicator switched to N.A.F.(not at fault) on your CLUE report. Then notify your Insurance company after your CLUE report is corrected. Then the company will liquidate the premium influence of an “at fault” accident.

ABSOLUTELY , if you telling you were told you must add the driver to the policy in order for there to be coverage for that driver, and the premium was too high, so you didn’t add them, but let them drive anyway and they had an accident? If that is the question I’m sorry, but you, (and perhaps the driver) more than likely will have to pay for all loss costs yourself.
If you inquired your insurance company about a potential claim could that cause premiums to increase?
No, absolutely NOT..
Actually it may! Lets say you called your agent and asked if you should file a claim for a side mirror you accidently broke off. The repair is $200 and well under your $500 deductible. The agent advises you correctly that if you filed a claim you would not get any benefit because it does not exceed your deductible. Here in CA he may be required by law to file an ‘Agent Filed Claim’. If the agent is captive (meaning he/she works for one company like Allstate, State Farm, AAA etc as opposed to an independent agent) his fudiciary responsibility is to the insurance company. Failure to do so can actually cost him his license..
In this case even however you never filed a claim or received any benefit you will have a claim on the books which could increase your premiums.
