Recent Erie Car Insurance Questions and Answers

Will Erie reinstate my policy after non-payment?

It's very likely they will reinstate your policy if you pay the amount past due and any potential fees associated with the cancellation. Because each company has their own administrative rules regarding reinstatement, it's very likely for you to be able to get your policy active again.

I was injured in a car accident two months ago, can I still file a claim?

The statute of limitations for filing a bodily injury claim in North Carolina is 3 years. So you are still within your legal time frame to file a claim even though your car's claim was completed.

How long can an insurance company wait to pay out your claim?

Virginia law does not specify an actual time frame for a claim payout but simply requires that insurance companies pay claims in a reasonable time. Most insurance companies want to close claims as quickly as possible, however, so you may want to contact that company directly to ask if they have an estimated date of the payout.

If the person who damaged my vehicle is paying for the repair out of pocket, will the claim show up anywhere on my record?

Unless you notified an insurance company to file a claim or a police officer wrote an incident report of the damage, the repair will not be documented on your driving record or claims history. Insurance companies verify your driving history by looking at your Motor Vehicle Report (MVR) and CLUE report.
