Can I switch to another insurance company if my rate goes up after an accident?
I got in an at-fault accident this year and my monthly rate jumped by $80 when my policy was renewed. Can I switch to another insurer for a better price?
You can absolutely switch to another insurance company after an at-fault accident. In fact, you’re typically free to switch insurers whenever you please.
Despite having this accident on your record, it’s possible that you could find a cheaper rate for car insurance elsewhere. Start shopping by getting quotes from at least three other companies.
