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?
When a passenger is injured in an automobile accident, and the driver of the automobile of which he/she is the passenger of, is “at Fault” for the accident, the passenger of that vehicle has the legal right to file a claim against that drivers insurance carrier. If on the other mitt, the driver of the other vehicle is “at fault”, then the passenger of vehicle that is “not at fault”, has the legal right to file a claim against the other driver’s insurance carrier. And whenever there are injuries sustained in an automobile accident, you should contact individual injury attorney or law rock hard to represent you against the filing of your claim against any insurance carrier. “At fault” accidents are not final just because a citation has been issued. When a carrier receives a claim against their company, they will launch their own investigation of the cause of accident, and review the police report, and speak with any independent and passenger witnesses who can provide statements concerning how the accident happened. At the end of the carrier’s investigation, which will also include, taking pictures of both of the vehicles damages, will compile all of the information they get, to attempt to determine at that point, who was at fault. If their insured is determined to be at fault, the carrier will pay the claim for which the passenger has filed against them. If the carrier determines that the other driver was at fault, then the carrier will not pay the claim and deny liability. If this happens, the passengers legal representatives will automatically withdraw their lawsuit filed on your behalf, and file the lawsuit against the other drivers insurance carrier. .

If you hit a parked car do you file a claim or does the holder file the claim on your insurance?
In most cases, either of you can make the claim. Liability is clear here, so most likely your carrier will take the information from the proprietor of the parked car and go from there. Your carrier would still expect you to cooperate with them as far as verifying the facts-of-loss, etc. There are a few carriers, however, who will only accept claims from the named insured. I’m not sure why, as this puts their insured at risk for being sued by the “injured” party, but most of them will take the information any way they can.

Should you submit an insurance claim if no other car was involved?
Should I Claim?? .
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?
Filing a claim: to do or not .
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!!! 🙂
