Winter weather conditions and black ice can cause serious damage and injuries, so I’m glad you’re okay!
That said, you don’t want to lie to your car insurance
. Lying to your insurance company can get you into big
trouble. Even if the lie seems small, it’s insurance fraud
. You are knowingly deceiving your insurance company to benefit, which can result in jail time, fines, and license suspension
While changing your coverage to collision insurance
is temptin, don’t do it. Paying for repairs is costly and slipping on black ice is an unavoidable part of owning a vehicle. However, the consequences of lying will likely have a greater impact on you than paying for repairs out of pocket.
While you can’t add full coverage and submit a claim after, you can still change your coverage. Although full coverage is more expensive, it’s often worth the extra protection. You should still get a quote from your current insurance company and at least two others.
