Do I have to pay a deductible?
The amount of deductible that
you will be responsible for is determined by your insurance
policy. If you carry broad collision, and you were not at
fault, your insurance company most likely will waive your
deductible. Insurance companies determine fault by your account
of the accident when you make the claim, and by reviewing
the accident report filed with the police department. If
you aren’t sure about
your deductible, you
can call your agent and he can tell you whether your insurance
company has waived your deductible or whether you will be
responsible to pay this when you pick up your vehicle.
