Will my insurance company drop me for not changing my address when I moved?
I moved from New Hampshire to Rhode Island and simply forgot to change my info. I got hit by another car and now my insurance company knows I moved. Could they deny the claim or drop my coverage?
Insurance regulations are very state-specific which is why when you move to a different state you are required to get a new policy. Therefore, it will be up to your current insurance company to decide whether or not they will pay out on the claim. Unfortunately, if they do not you will be responsible for the damages. In terms of you getting dropped, that's unlikely unless your old company doesn't operate in your new state. Either way, you will want to get a new policy in Rhode Island as soon as possible.
Good luck, and don't hesitate to ask if you have any other questions.
