Why did my insurance company automatically add my daughter to my policy when she has her own insurance?

If your daughter lives with you and you two share an address, your insurance company is probably assuming that she may sometimes drive your vehicle, at which point she would need to be a named driver on your policy. If she has her own car — and doesn't drive yours — it could be possible for you to have her excluded from your policy.

Can I switch companies if my rates go up after an accident?

You can shop around for lower rates elsewhere as you please. But keep in mind that the accident will still be on your record for all insurers to see and rate you on — namely, it will show up on your CLUE report, which all insurance companies use to access your claims history.
