A Car Accident With My Own Car

Written by Michele Wilmonen. Posted in Ask An Insurance Question Last Updated: 02/21/2016

Question: I was just in a car accident, but both cars are mine. Do I have to pay my deductible on both cars to get them fixed?

Answer: It all depends on your insurance company. Some insurance companies make you pay both deductibles if you are in a car accident with your own vehicles, others will just have you pay for one deductible and the best ones are the companies that completely waive both deductibles. The only way you will know what your insurance company will do is to ask your agent or insurance company.
