Will being in a car accident make my insurance rates go up?

When you are found to be not at fault for an accident, your insurance company should not raise your rates on your policy for having to use the coverages afforded to you under state law and that you have specifically purchased to protect yourself when an accident occurs. An insurance company can raise rates for a variety of reasons and if you are concerned about whether your rates have, or will be, increased, you should call your insurance company for an explanation.
