Can a lender dictate what my deductible is?

Unfortunately, the terms of your loan can dictate what your coverage deductibles must be. Your lienholder may not necessarily notice right away if you change your deductible, but if they catch on they will add force-placed insurance, also known as collateral protection insurance, as a part of your monthly payments.

Motorcycle Insurance

Will a comprehensive claim on my motorcycle affect my car insurance rates?

Your comprehensive claim will show up on your reports for auto insurance even if it was done for a motorcycle. The good news is if this is your first comp claim, it's considered not-at-fault, and most companies will not adjust your rates.

Coverage & Claims

I was driving and the car in front of me hit a deer and I ran over it. Why won't my insurance cover it under comprehensive?

Hitting an animal is almost always covered under comprehensive coverage. Unless something else had happened, I would seek additional assistance with this claim because they should not be denying it.

Coverage & Claims

How will my rate be impacted by opening a comprehensive claim? How is fault decided?

If it is considered comprehensive, there would be no fault on the claim so you can take that out of the equation. Comp claims are best summed up as your responsibility but not your fault.

Coverage & Claims

Will comprehensive insurance cover damages caused by road debris?

Sorry to hear about your accident. If you have comprehensive, it should cover any damages caused by debris.

Coverage & Claims

My car was keyed 4 months ago. Is it too late to file a claim with my insurance company?

The statute of limitations on property damage and injury claims in Ohio is two years — so you are well within the time frame to file a claim. The car being keyed would count as an act of vandalism, so your comprehensive coverage should cover the damage.

Coverage & Claims

I cut down a big tree and it fell on my truck. Will insurance cover that?

Your insurance should cover the damages minus your deductible. In this case, you would file a comprehensive claim for the damage.

Coverage & Claims

Someone attempted to steal my neighbor's vehicle and wrecked my van, how do I handle insurance?

You would not be at fault in this case. In cases like this, it's best to get all the documentation you can, like a police report. If you have comprehensive and collision, you should be able to get your car fixed.

Will my rates go up if I file a claim for a vandalized windshield?

A comprehensive claim can affect your insurance rating. However, most carriers are alright with allowing one such claim per three year period.

Coverage & Claims

How can I get points off my license?

Hello, Unfortunately, there is no way to instantly remove demerit points from your license since there was a collision. In a case where an animal is involved, insurers typically rule it to be safer to hit the animal than to swerve trying to miss it.

Eligibility

My "totaled" car was barely damaged. Is it still possible to get full coverage on it?

Hello, Car insurance companies typically total a car when it costs more to repair it than what the car is worth. Since it has already been totaled, it's highly unlikely that a car insurance company would be willing to give you full coverage (comprehensive and collision) for a rebuilt title vehicle.
