Is accident forgiveness worth paying for?
Is the extra cost worth accident forgiveness? I noticed that my carrier Nationwide has the option to buy accident forgiveness. So far, I have a clean driving record (knock on wood) but I know that accidents happen.

“Having accident forgiveness on your insurance policy will give you peace of mind.
Even just one accident on your policy could increase your rates by hundreds of dollars per month.
With Nationwide, their accident forgiveness plan promises that your policy will not be surcharged for your first accident.
Accident forgiveness can be used one time per policy.”

Are rear-end accidents always found at fault?
If someone causes me to hit another car, who is at fault? When I was on the highway last week, I was involved in a fender bender that involved seven other cars. The car behind me hit me, which caused me to rear-end the car in front of me.

Is there any reason why I can't have two insurance policies on the same car?
Can I be covered on two insurance policies? I have been listed on my mom's State Farm's insurance policy for years. I finally was able to get my own policy with The General but we noticed it is really cheap to keep me and my car listed on her policy, too.
