yes if your pays for your car. Even if they don't pay for your car. My agent warned me that my homeowners premiums could be raised just for filing claims! They used to send an adjustor out automatically if there was a hailstorm or windstorm, but not any more. I just wanted an ajustor to estimate the damage last spring and let me know if it would exceed my deductible.
