How do I make a claim on damage I caused to my own car?
Last week, I failed to check where my mirrors were before pulling out of my spot, and accidentally knocked one clean off. (It was not my finest moment.) I don't think I have the funds to cover the repairs out of pocket, and I obviously need to be able to drive my car, but I don't know if I can make a claim on damage that I did myself. Where would I even start to file this kind of claim?
- Call the claims department or file a claim through your insurance company’s mobile app
