Most companies will cancel your policy if you file a claim within the first 30 days of the policy. The reason is exactly what they told you. People who file a claim within the first 30 days of the policy are seen as a higher risk that most companies are not willing to take on. Insurance companies determine the risk based on how likely it is that they will have to pay out on a claim. This is is why your claim history affects your rates.You would have been informed of the rules and regulations within your policy documents. We can help you find a new company but they will not cover the existing damages. Just visit us at thezebra.com. Also, if you have anymore questions don't hesitate to ask. Good luck
