No. They are responsible for their own deductible. Because, when my van got hit, which was parked, I had to pay my deductible before the insurance company would cover it!
A premium is the amount of money you pay the auto/health insurance company monthly, quarterly, or biannually whether or not you get in an accident or go to the hospital. The higher your premium the lower your deductible, and the lower your premium the higher your deductible. A deductible is the amount of money after you get in a car accident or visit the hospital before your insurance company pays anything. After you have met your deductible the insurance company covers the rest of the expenses.
The amount of a policy deductible on a homeowners insurance policy is chosen by the policyholder. Your policy deductible is the amount you are responsible for paying before the insurance company will payout for a claim. If you experience a loss to your dwelling or your personal property, your homeowners insurance policy deductible applies. The deductible does not apply to other coverages on the policy. If you experience a loss under your deductible, you will not be eligible for a payout. If your loss exceeds your deductible, your deductible will be deducted from your claims payout check.
The term deductible, when discussing insurance issues, applies to the amount of money you must pay out of pocket before your insurance coverage will pay for a claim. For example, if you have a $500 deductible on your homeowner's insurance policy and you have $1,000 worth of hail damage, you must pay your $500 deductible towards the damage and your insurance policy will kick in to pay the remaining $500 for repairs.
When you have a deductible in your plan, before your insurance starts paying for the coverage, you have to meet the deductible after which the insurance starts paying its portion.
Your insurance is either valid on the day of your accident or it isn't. If you are asking what happens if the policy was valid on the day of the accident but lapses before the claim is settled then the coverage that was in effect the day of the accident still applies. If your policy was not in effect the day of the accident then coverage will not apply.
In terms of auto insurance, the deductible is the amount the policyholder is committing to pay if their vehicle is damaged or stolen before the insurance company is responsible for paying out a claim. A deductible applies to both comprehensive and collision physical damage coverage. Comprehensive will pay for damage or loss to your vehicle resulting from fire, theft, vandalism, hail damage, and wind. Collision pays for damage caused by an accident. You will be required to choose a deductible for each coverage ranging from $0 to $2000. While higher deductibles offer lower auto insurance rates, you will be responsible for paying this amount before the insurance company will cut a claims check. Choose a deductible that is practical for your situation.
Prefaced by the standard - generally, under most circumstances, etc - and what your looking for is a deduction (of the expense), not an exemption (which would be advantageous if it was income). Yes, as it would be a casualty loss deduction. However, as the casualty deduction has some restrictions to meet before it can be claimed, which is likely not to be met by the generally modest amount of a deductible, unless you have losses on top of the deductible, it is likely not really available.
It would not affect her current claim but lowering of her deductible would then affect any future claims. Of course the premium would be slightly higher in exchange for the lower deductible. The company will also want to examine the vehicle to make sure repairs are done from the previous accident before lowering the deductible.
A deductible is the amount that you must pay out of pocket before the insurance company will start making payment.
