Most people believe if they have to file a claim with their insurance company, their insurance premiums will increase. Although that theory may be correct in some cases, it is not accurate in others. Whether or not your insurance company chooses to increase your premiums after you file a claim depends on the circumstances surrounding the actual claim. In many cases, once the facts and the history you have with your insurance company is reviewed, you may find that your premium may stay the same.
