Some carriers do offer small-claims forgiveness, but in most cases you will see your rates go up after making a claim on your home insurance. Most of the time, this is also partially due to the loss of a claims-free discount. Typically, if a claim reaches or surpasses a specific value, then the price of the insurance will rise further. The larger the claim, the larger the increase.
