How much does insurance go up after a minor accident
It would be nice to be able to give a quick and easy answer to this question, but unfortunately – there isn’t one.
All insurance providers will have a slightly different ‘formula’ for calculating the premiums of their customers. It will be based on many factors, including how much it costs them to resolve your accident claim.
One thing is for certain though, it’s not likely to be a small increase.
If you were ‘at-fault’ for the accident, there is little you can do about it, apart from paying for the other drivers repairs yourself – but this can be risky if they are of a dubious nature and can lead to more problems. It is probably wise to make a claim on your policy and bear the increased insurance cost this time.
