If the insurance company had to pay anything for damamges, then they will raise your rates for it. An accident will be on your record whether At Fault or not and whether or not you got a ticket. Changing insurance companies may not save you much money. If you can get documentation proving the ticket was voided and your driving record is clear, forward it to your insurance company. If they refude to take it into consideration, file a compaint with a supervisor or a general director of the company. If that fails, you might want to think about shopping around.

What can you do if your insurance is cancelled the same day you get in an accident and total your car?

Know the Insurance Requirements in New York City?

If you are a driver in New York City, then there are some things you might not know about auto insurance that are important. New York City is one of the busiest cities in the country, so if you don't have to drive, then try using public transportation. However, if you need to drive a car, you will be required to have insurance coverage on the vehicle.Thinking that you can drive a car in the city with no insurance is like thinking you can drive without a seat belt. If you are pulled over for any violation and the officer finds that you do not have coverage, you can be given a citation or a ticket. If you have more than one violation, you may find yourself in jail. You will also not be covered if you are in an accident if you do not have insurance. Sometimes drivers cannot afford the most expensive insurance coverage, and this is alright. The minimum coverage that you need is $25,000 for one person and $50,000 for others that are involved in the accident if they are injured. Property damage minimums are $10,000. This means if you have an accident and you do more damage than what you have covered, you may have to pay the balance out of your own pocket. Some drivers go ahead and get the higher coverage so they know they will be covered if anything severe happens while they are driving.Drivers often worry if they will have their insurance cancelled. New York City does not cancel insurance unless there are circumstances that demand for the coverage to be cancelled. One of the reasons insurance would be cancelled is if your driver's license has been suspended. You should also be truthful with your insurance company. If they find out you have lied about anything on your policy, they can cancel your insurance, and it may be hard to get a new policy in the city.

What is the worst that can happen if you let someone with a suspended license drive your car?

They'll have an accident that is their fault, the insurance company will refuse to pay, the driver of the vehicle and the owner will be sued for everything they own and then some. Or they will be in an accident that is not their fault but the person who owns the vehicle will have their insurance cancelled and will have to pay a fortune for future coverage.

Accident insurance is typically very cheap because it restricts coverage to a claim involving death resulting from an accident which has a low statistical probability.

If you are asking about "accident insurance" that will replace your income if you are hurt in an accident, that is typically very cheap as well.

What should you do if after a car accident your insurance company claims they did not receive your payment and sent you a cancellation notice but you did not receive it?

Several answers apply here. First did you move and if so did you send your insurance company a change of address? Secondly did the accident take place before or after the effective date of cancellation? Insurance companies don't have to prove you received the cancellation notice, they only have to prove they mailed the cancellation to the last known address you provided them. If you move and do not send them a change of address, you are in trouble. Lastly, did you pay the insurance premium for which they cancelled you? If so produce your cashed check and they will have to reinstate your policy by most state laws. If you did not pay as required, then they cancelled you for non payment, and in all likelihood you are cancelled and have no coverage. If the accident took place before the date of cancellation, go see an attorney.

What can you do if your auto insurance was cancelled 3 days before your son had an accident you did not get a notice or know it was cancelled until you called to let them know about the accident?

Unless the insurance was cancelled for an unsubstantiated reason, there's not much you can do as far as law enforcement is concerned. You should have received notice of the impending cancellation, but it's not grounds for fighting the cancellation itself; it is assumed that you know you should be up to date on payments and aware of any situations that might threaten your coverage. It's a case of bad timing, really. At the time of the accident, the vehicle was uninsured and law enforcement (and the courts) don't usually go out of the way to hear excuses.

What does it mean when someone is excluded from an auto insurance policy?

By excluding a person from an auto insurance policy, you are stating that the "excluded" person will not drive the insured vehicle, and that you understand that the "excluded" person is not covered by your insurance in the case of any traffic violation (accident, ticket, etc.). It means there is no coverage available to the excluded person in the case of an accident while driving the said vehicle. There will be NO COVERAGE.
