So Tuesday afternoon I was hungover was fug after New Years and I went to go get a bite to eat it was rainy outside and at a stop light my car hydroplaned as I was breaking and nudged the back of the car of the person in front of me. The only damage on her car was a tiny scratch that isn't even really noticeable. But apparently now she wants a whole new back bumper because of it. This is the first accident I've ever been at fault for so how much do you think my insurance will go up because of this?

Doesn't matter what she wants. It only matters what your insurance will pay for and if they think they can get away with a paint job...

...regardless, you did rear end her. A lot depends on how long you've been driving, how long you've been with your current insurance company, etc.

Basically you will now have a "1" in the rating system for at fault accidents. How much your rates go up will depend on your companies rating system which is based on lots of variables. One at fault accident may be offset by your good driving record. Some companies don't raise rates for 1 claim.

Or your rates may go up by 50%. It's so company specific that it is hard to give a number.

If there is a claim it will go up. At least that is my experience.

While there may have been no visible damage, bumpers usually have a piece of dense foam to absorb the impact. If this is damaged, which it is made to do, then it will need to be replaced. The next time they get hit they wont have that protection and the damage will be considerably more...

At least this is what was told to me when some jackleg ran into the back of my wife's car a few days ago....

Wait... Where did you say this happened??

    • And to think this guy made it through 7 rounds and not one team wanted him.  Thank God Gettleman was on his "A" game and signed him here. Amazing how talent can bypass so many scouts, coaches and GMs. If they did a redraft.   What round would he go to?  Round 1?  He's a solid of a Guard as any in this league.
    • you do realize that $1M pledge he made was after he had received a ton of backlash and outcry from the media for sitting during the national anthem? He did hold his promise and has made some other donations as well, but before he decided to sit at football games, he didn't do jack poo for oppressed communities and the homeless, or any other charities for that matter. He was just a narcissist prima dona who so happened to play for one of the most talented teams in the NFL headed by one of the greatest coaches in the NFL. Him prospering early on in his career made him a cocky SOB who dressed like a thug during press conferences and treated the media like dog poo.  Yes people change, but he changed for the wrong reasons. His career was in turmoil, he was a declining NFL QB trying to stay relevant, so he thought up a rouge to get back in the spotlight by sitting. After he received backlash, he thought to himself "oh crap, I need to back up my words with some action. let me make a few donations to show the world I truly care about what I stand for"  the dude could give a rats ass about any of that poo. He didn't even show up to vote, and I don't think he's ever voted in his life. And I don't care about voting for the president, but at least vote for your local officials and congressman and for your states propositions. If he truly wants to have a voice and use the stage he has to inflict some serious changes in this country, there's a way to go about it, not seek attention for the wrong reasons just to resurrect your career.  
    • I love Moton. The only thing that freaks me out about him is that he played for a small school. I do think he could've flourished for a big time program though.
