How does my credit rating affect my insurance?
Insurance companies use credit-based information to evaluate insurance risks and determine a consumer’s pattern of credit management. Some credit factors taken into account are payment history, public records such as bankruptcies or judgments, outstanding debt, and length of credit history scores. It has been statistically proven that the higher the credit score, the better the insurance risk. Individuals with favorable credit history generally file fewer and/or less expensive claims. Using credit to supplement the underwriting process allows Electric Insurance to make precise underwriting decisions. This results in more competitive, affordable rates for you. Please note: Use of insurance scores is not applicable in all states.
What happens when a policyholder is considered to be not-at-fault for an accident?
When a policyholder is considered to be not-at-fault for an accident, Electric Insurance will make every attempt to reimburse the insured’s deductible as soon as possible. In most cases, the subrogation process occurs at the same time as the repair. The Subrogation Department will attempt to recover the insured’s deductible, vehicle repair costs, and covered rental expenses. In some states, medical expenses are included. If a negotiated settlement is reached with the other insurance company for less than 100% (based on negligence), we will refund the deductible based on the percentage figure. Subrogation can be a lengthy process and may take an average of 60-120 days. Our representatives can explain this process to you in more detail if needed.
What happens if the repair shop finds additional damage to the vehicle after the original appraisal or estimate has been written?
Sometimes the repair shop will find additional damage to the vehicle after the original appraisal or estimate has been written. If so, the repair shop will notify Electric Insurance and send in a supplement estimate. As long as the additional damage is accident-related, it will be covered up to the approved amount.
Why is the lien holder or mortgage company's name listed beside the insured’s name on the check?
When a repair check is issued for damage to an insured’s vehicle or home, the insured’s name will be listed on the check along with the lien holder or mortgage company. This is done because the holder of the title has an insurable interest in the vehicle or home. You may speak to your claims adjuster if other arrangements are necessary.
Once an accident has been reported, how long will everything take?
Once the accident has been reported to Electric Insurance, an adjuster will contact you within 24 hours (one business day for Texas residents) to discuss your claim. If your vehicle has been towed to a repair shop, the adjuster will contact the shop directly. For most claims, a repair check will be issued within two days of receipt of the completed appraisal. If your vehicle is drivable and there are no injuries on the claim, you may obtain a repair estimate from the shop of your choice (except in Massachusetts where review by an appraiser is required). When the estimate is received, it will be reviewed within 24 hours and a repair check will be sent out within two business days. These timeframes exclude Total Loss vehicles.
Who receives a claim form in collision losses?
Claim forms are sent to all parties involved in collision losses. In some states such as New York and California, state forms are also included in the mailing. These claim forms should be completed to the best of your ability. The driver of the vehicle should be sure to write down all details pertaining to the accident. For subrogation purposes, it is very important that we have the insured’s written report on file.
How can I report my claim?
Claims can be reported 24 hours-a-day either through the MyAccount Policy Management Center or via telephone at 800.227.2757. An adjuster will contact you within 24 business hours.
How can I reach the approved Electric Insurance car rental, glass repair, and vehicle inspection vendors?
Policyholders find contact information by logging into the MyAccount Policy Management Center or by calling Electric Insurance at 800.227.2757.
