How Many Years Does An Accident Remain On The Records With An Automobile Insurance Agency?

Postby Kerrie » Fri Sep 29, 2017 6:32 pm

Usually, accidents remain on an insurance provider's records for 3 to 5 years. Some other considerations when looking for a provider are:

1.
Gender and Age. Young male drivers are typically the most expensive to insure, especially if there is any infraction on their driver's record.


2.
Driving Record. Tickets, accidents, being caught driving while under the influence ?they all add up and translate into higher auto insurance costs.


3. Be aware of discounts. If you are a good student, if you have safety features installed on your car, if you have low mileage on your car, if you are a senior, if you are in the military?all of these can mean discounts on your auto insurance costs. But, did you know that where you live and what you drive may also impact your auto insurance costs?

4.
Location, Location, Location

It's a fact, auto insurance rates in rural communities are almost always lower than those in large urban centers. Accidents tend to happen much more frequently in big cities, usually due to the high amount of cars on the road (AKA: Traffic!)

5.
Certain states have higher insurance rates than others due to the percentage of claims filed. States like New Jersey, Washington D.C., New York and Massachusetts typically have the highest average insurance rates.


I6.
t can also cost more to settle claims in certain areas, and this can add to the cost of your insurance premiums. Expensive cars cost more to repair or replace, and wealthy urban communities will sometimes have higher average insurance rates.

Usually auto insurance companies will only look back 3-5 years depending on which state you live in.
After 5 years your accident shouldn't affect your rates any longer.

Forever.
If you're asking how long the insurance company will consider you a high risk driver because of an accident, it depends on fault and severity, and 3 years is the norm for minor accidents.
