Does the fault percentage matter when it comes to car insurance rate hikes?

I got into an accident a while back. At first, it was determined that I was 50% at fault. Then this percentage was changed to 70%. Will this 20% difference impact how much I'll pay for insurance?

“No, the percentage of fault won’t make a difference in how much your car insurance rate rises. All that matters is that you were in an at-fault accident; that’s it.
If you find that your car insurance becomes unaffordable down the line due to a rate hike, your best option is to shop around with multiple companies to find the right coverage at the lowest price.”
