Young Driver in a Car Accident

Written by Michele Wilmonen. Posted in Ask An Insurance Question Last Updated: 11/25/2015

Young drivers in car accidents can expect car insurance premium increases.

Question: So I barely backed up into a car . I have my own insurance . Im 18 so I’m still in that expensive range insurance. how much more do you think my insurance will go up?

Answer: While I cannot tell you how much your car insurance will go up, it will be going up.  Yes, you are in that expensive range of car insurance and that is also the range of car insurance that the insurance companies come down on the hardest for the slightest infraction. You will find out on your next renewal how much your premium will be affected from the car accident.
