Hi, I'm Doug Levi, principal agent and owner of Strategic Insurance Services. And today, I'm going to talk to you about "How much does my auto insurance go up when I have a car accident?" Well, the first thing I'm going to tell you is it depends. What were the details? Who is at fault? How much did the carrier pay out? There's so many questions involved with that. The thing to be prepared for is no likely - it's very likely, I should say, that your rates will probably go up due to having an accident. The second thing that I would say I recommend to you, is review with your agent or your carrier at your renewal. When your renewal comes up, you can look at different carriers, different options. Not all carriers are going to treat accidents the same. So, for example, one might charge more for a certain type of accident than another. So, oftentimes I tell clients, "Don't get too upset at first. We'll walk you through the process." That's what your agents are there for, or that's what the carrier's there for. This was "How much will my car insurance go up after an accident?" I'm Doug Levi with Strategic Insurance Services, and you can get more information on auto insurance and auto accidents at
