Car Accident Not Your Fault, What Happens to Your Insurance Premium? (Morethan Example) / Personal_Finance / Insurance

By: N_Walayat

What happens to your car insurance if your involved in an accident that is NOT your fault? I imagine most motorists are thinking that given the fact that the insurance company will get ALL of their costs back from the third party's insurer, so there should be little increase in premium.

For instance if your insured with the leading RSA insurance brand MoreThan, and your involved in an accident that is NOT your fault then you can expect your insurance premium to rocket by as much as 42%!
