Recent MetLife Car Insurance Questions and Answers

Whose insurance pays for an accident after running a stop sign?

Unfortunately stop signs in parking lots are not the same as stop signs on the street when it comes to determining fault. Parking lot accidents are often difficult to assign fault for insurance companies so they may ultimately decide to cover only their own customer's damage by saying the that fault was 50/50 between the drivers.

Who is at fault if I opened my car door and it was hit by another driver?

In situations where a car door is opened and subsequently hit, fault is generally with the person who opened the door. There are scenarios where both drivers may share liability and each situation is different, so it's difficult to say with any certainty where fault lies.

Will a paraphernalia charge impact my auto insurance rate?

Tickets that impact your auto insurance rate are generally moving violations, so you probably don't have to worry about this showing up on your driving report. The exception would be if your drivers license was suspended because of the ticket, but the suspension is what would impact your rate and not the ticket itself.

If I'm involved in an accident driving my grandmother's car, will the damage be covered?

Luckily, most insurance policies allow for permissive use drivers, so the damage you caused should be covered under your grandmother's policy as long as you aren't a full-time driver. Unfortunately, your grandmother's insurance rate is likely to increase after the claim since it will be considered an At Fault accident.
