What car insurance discounts are available after drivers turn 25?
I've heard that car insurance rates go down at age 25. As someone who's about to turn 25, what kind of reductions or discounts can I look forward to?
After age 25, drivers do usually see a drop in insurance premiums because carriers may provide the insured with good-driver discounts. They’re also offered lower rates because they’ve matured into an age group that’s perceived to be less risky.
You won’t, however, see an immediate drop in premiums right when you turn 25. You’ll usually need to wait until the renewal of your policy to see any changes in your car insurance rates.
Furthermore, if you really want to lower your premiums, it helps to maintain a clean driving record and shop around for the most affordable quotes. If, for example, you’ve got a DUI on your record or you’ve made a lot of claims, your premiums may not drop at all once you turn 25.

How can my cousin get his medical bills covered after being hit by a car?
"My cousin was hit by a car while riding his bicycle. The police report says my cousin is at fault for crossing the street illegally. We submitted a claim to his health insurance for his injuries and medical bills. His health insurance is now denying the claim and saying that we need to reach out to the driver's insurance for coverage. Will they pay for anything since my cousin is at fault? How do we get his medical bills covered? "
