What can happen if you don't pay for your car insurance?
I'm currently insured, but I'm wondering what the consequences of not paying my car insurance would be. My work hours have been cut back, so money is pretty tight these days.
“When you don’t pay your car insurance bill, your coverage can be canceled. Without insurance, you won’t be covered in the event of an accident. This means that you would be responsible for any damages or injuries you cause.
If you don’t pay your bill, you could also face higher rates with insurance carriers down the road. Carriers look at your prior insurance history when deciding on your rate. If they see that you had a policy canceled for non-payment, you could face higher rates than someone who pays for their car insurance on time.
If cost is an issue, you should shop around. You can request car insurance quotes online to find the best price for the coverage you need.
