Did you know over a half million automobile accidents happen each year in USA due to winter storms and general bad weather? If you are found at fault it can increase your insurance premium for up to six years and cost you thousands of dollars? It doesn’t have to be that way. Have you heard of ‘Automobile Accident forgiveness’?
What is Accident Forgiveness?
If you have an at-fault accident, your surcharge points on your personal automobile policy will be waived for that accident and on renewals providing you remain with the same insurance company. It will also restore the ‘good driving premium credit’ that you would lose.
Although it can’t remove the accident from your Department of Motor Vehicle driving record, it will prevent you from having to pay more money insurance premium because of the accident. Not everyone can qualify for Accident Forgiveness.
