That’s always a balance inbetween what happened and how much it will
cost you versus how much your rates will increase. If it will be a
large claim, then almost always you should file a claim. If it was
puny, then maybe not… but be sure to consider that even with
puny car accidents, there could be hidden harm, like the
alignment being thrown off, etc. You might want to get your car
checked out to be sure.
Does a passenger in a car accident have to file a claim with their own insurance company?
I was in a one car accident where the car ran off the road to avoid hitting something. I was the passenger of the car. If my medical insurance from my job pay for the my hospital bills is the insurance company intitle to pay me back the money even tho’ my insurance covered it .
In the UK – the passenger would make a claim against the driver at fault. This driver would pass the details to his insurer who would indemnify him for the claim made against him. A passenger could not make a claim against his own insurer. To see the process for making a claim in the UK see the related link entitled “motor vehicle accident”.

If you choose to file a claim with your insurer, you will have to pay the comprehensive deductible as well, your rates may increase at the end of you term.
If you were in an accident with an insured driver but it was not their car who do you file the claim against?
If you had an accident with no other cars involved and filed a claim to insurance with no police report do you have to report this accident to the fresh company if you get different insurance?
If you don’t the fresh insurance company can cancel your coverage and possibly not cover any of YOUR losses. They might also consider it to be fraud..
Any accident less than $750 isn’t chargeable, but if you packed a claim with another insurance company your fresh company would found out even if you don’t tell them, when they run your MVR which shows your tickets and previous insurance companies and claim paid.
Should you submit an insurance claim if no other car was involved?
It’s all indeed up to you. I’m assuming you’re asking this in regards to a total coverage policy. Anyhow, get some estimates for your vehicle and compare the estimates to your deductible. If you got a dent and it costs $700 to fix, you might as well pay the entire $700 since the insurance company will only pay out $200 with a $500 deductuble. The possible insurance increase wouldn’t make any sense in that case. If you have the extra cash to pay for a repair bill, you might want to pay for it yourself. Recall, anytime you submit a claim to insurance for damages, you are essentially “billing” them for the repairs, and they might raise your insurance accordingly..
No. Every time you report an incident to your carrier, their underwriting department records same and will use it to increase your premiums at a later date.
Should you file a claim with your insurance?
It all depends. I personally only file a claim if it’s going to cost significantly more than my deductible, is worth the effort to fix it, and I’m ready for my insurance premium to increase. If you are careful about how many claims you make and how often, you should be ok. Also, a comprehensive claim on your auto is judged less harshly than a collision claim. Accidents are the largest increase of premium usually. If it’s a towing claim, or a petite (under 1000) comprehensive it’s not too bad..
With homes, the risk is higher to be cancelled at renewal if you put in a claim. Make sure it’s worth the increase of premium for the next Five years. That’s how long a claim stays on a CLUE report. Good Luck! Hope that helped a little!!! 🙂
