Rate Digest suggests that drivers who have recently been in an accident re-evaluate their current insurance policy.
According to the blog post, drivers should call around and find what insurance premiums are for several different car insurance providers. Rate Digest helps provide a comparison tool to do this. This promotes competitive rates and also makes the driver more aware of differing penalties. The blog post states that different insurance companies will increase premiums at different rates, and the driver should use this to his or her advantage.
The company also suggests contacting the current insurance provider and asking about plans that they might provide for lowering insurance premiums. This allows the consumer to discuss other insurance offers while allowing the current insurance provider to provide the company’s policy on lowering auto insurance premiums.
Other steps that Rate Digest suggests can be taken to lower car insurance premiums after an accident include raising the amount of the deductible, adding another vehicle to the auto insurance plan to take advantage of multiple vehicle discounts, and taking a drivers safety course. According to the company, each of these steps allows the insurance company to see responsibility on the part of the driver. In a previous blog post, Rate Digest has stated that showing responsibility is key to lowering insurance premiums.
One final step that drivers who have recently been in an accident can take is to drive less, says Rate Digest. Carpooling and public transit are usually options that are available to anyone. Using these forms of transportation can help to reduce the cost of gas as well as an extra charge on insurance premiums.
