What happens if I can t pay the deductible for an accident I had in a rental car?

I got in an accident in my car and had to pay the deductible. I had a rental and got into an accident on the last day of my car s repairs being done. I dropped off the rental, paid the deductible for my car and told them I d call my insurance company to have the same repair shop take care of it.

I got in an accident in my car and had to pay the deductible. I had a rental and got into an accident on the last day of my car s repairs being done. I dropped off the rental, paid the deductible for my car and told them I d call my insurance company to have the same repair shop take care of it.

So here I am with a $1,300 rental bill and a $500 deductible for the second accident, with neither of them being my highest priority so far as paying bills goes.

I looked up what happens in general and it s not helpful. I already have my car, so not getting my car back isn t possible as a punishment. Basically, before I tell insurance I can t pay it, I just want to know if they can change my coverage on my car in any way or cancel my policy if I can still pay my monthly bill (one of the bills that is a high priority).
People really don't seem to understand the fact that insulting the asker does not result in them giving you the best answer.

Best Answer:

D: when you took out the insurance you entered a contract. When you took out the rental car you entered a contract. Break a contract and the insurance company are within their rights to cancel your insurance policy.
You need to move it up your priority list – you do not want to make an enemy of the insurance company – they share information including the answer to that question "Have you ever had insurance refused or revoked"…
I guess what I am saying is that like all things, if you don't pay your bills you get cut off and find it hard to do business elsewhere.

Other answer:

D:
They will take you to collections, which will want the money plus their collection fee, which in most cases is double. They can file a lien on your social security, your paycheck, your bank account, and even your automobile registration. Pay it in whatever way you have to, because they can wring your financial neck. If you read the contract before you signed it, you would know this. If your own auto insurance doesn't have a renters coverage, the extra few bucks on the rental would have avoided this. Read your contracts from now on, they are legally binding.

With two accidents occurring within days of each other, two things are likely to happen. Your rates go through the roof or the insurance carrier will drop you.

A word of advice. Get a second job and pay your debts. Stop driving and take public transportation.
