Fender Bender

Fender BenderYou just ran into a pole going at a slow rate of speed.  Not much damage to the pole and your car has a minor dent in the fender.  Do you call your insurance and file a claim? Probably not a good idea. The more claims that you file the more it goes against you. Have you heard of the good driver discounts and accident forgiveness?  The more you file claims, the higher your auto insurance goes.  The more accidents, the higher the premiums, and pretty soon you can find yourself without insurance. According to Kristofer Kirchen, of the First Florida Insurance Network of Central Florida, “All fender benders are surcharged the same – whether $200 or $200,000. If your premium is $1,500 and you are surcharged 25 percent on top of a rating tier change of 10 percent, your premium will jump to $2,062.50 – a $562.50 increase. This will stay in effect for three years. Basically, you pay out of pocket either way.” The insurance company can choose to either
  1. Pay an accident surcharge
  2. Base rates could rise
  3. Lose any discounts you may have had in place.
