We all appreciate that if you have an accident in your car that is your fault, the cost of your insurance is likely to go up. If however you were not responsible, surely the at-fault drivers insurer pays for everything and the cost of your insurance should not go up? Not so.
Insurers calculate their policy premiums based on an assessment of the risk or likelihood of you being involved in a collision.
If you have an accident that was not your fault, most insurers consider that you are now more likely to be involved in an accident in the future, and so this extra risk is covered by an increase in your premium.
In addition to this, you will probably have to pay your excess yourself initially and then try and claim the money back months later.
