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.See More Questions
Are deductibles company specific?
While they are some company-specific deductibles, the standard ones are $500 and $1000. So it's unlikely you won't be able to get the desired amount for your collision or comprehensive deductible.See More Questions
