If your insurance company has to pay out on a claim, it will impact your rates. If you have uninsured motorist coverage, the accident will only stay on your record for 3 years and will not impact your rates as much as if you don't. If you don't have uninsured coverage, but do have collisioncoverage, the insurance company will still pay to fix your car but this will be listed as an at-fault accident and will impact your rates for up to five years. Unfortunately, there is nothing else that can be done. You will just have to wait until the claims fall off of your record. Check out our guide to filing claims to learn more about what to expect from the filing process. Good luck and if you have any other questions, don't hesitate to ask.
