How much will my car insurance go up if I'm a teen who was at fault in an accident?
I'm a 17-year-old male who got into an accident. How much will my car insurance rates go up as a result?
“There is no one-size-fits-all answer for this question. If you’re a teenager and male, you’re already going to have some of the highest rates on the market due to the risk of an accident or ticket.
The type of car you drive and whether you’re on your parents’ policy will also make a drastic difference, and if you haven’t done so already, you should inquire about a good student discount.
Since you got into an accident, your car insurance will assuredly go up. But by how much? Only your car insurance provider can answer that.”

"How can I escape a car loan with 26% interest? "
"I got a car loan with a 26% interest rate two years ago because it was my only option. At the time it didn’t seem that bad, but now I can barely afford to make the payments. Is there any way I can get out of this awful loan? "

What happens when the person at fault for an accident doesn’t have enough insurance?
I have a liability-only policy. Another driver hit my car and one other car in an accident and both are totaled. The guy that is at fault for the accident only had $5,000 in property damage coverage. His insurance company is waiting for the total damage from the other person in the claim. They won't pay until I sign a release.
