Will filing claims for acts of nature cause my car insurance premium to rise?
My car was damaged by a really bad hail storm. I know that's an "act of nature" and not my fault. If I file a claim with my car insurance company for the repairs, will my rates go up?

Thanks for the question! Filing claims for acts of nature can cause your premiums to increase, especially if the claim is over $2,000 and/or you have multiple claims on your driving history.
