Are There Cases Where Insurance Don’t Cover Single-Vehicle Crashes?
There are certain situations where you aren’t able to claim your auto insurance when single-vehicle crashes are involved. Most notably, it applies when the driver is established to be the one at fault, such as in DUI or reckless driving cases. Even if your single-vehicle was determined to be a collision-based case, there will still be a chance that your payout will be lower than you expect. Not only that but if you had a single-vehicle crash, you will most certainly end up with higher premiums in the following payment cycle.
