If the accident was your fault and your company doesn't have an accident forgiveness policy or you haven't been with your company long enough to qualify for forgiveness then I would highly consider paying out of pocket for the damage. If the accident wasn't your fault then go ahead with the claim. Make sure that you know whether the accident is your fault or not. What an insurance company thinks about fault is often times different than what you think.

It really is not possible to define that in percentages. But think of it this way, the higher the deductible ( the amount you pay BEFORE the insurance company begins to pay ) the lower the premium.

You are basically putting yourself on the hook for potentially another $1,000 in deductible to save $200.
