Sometimes, bad weather can strike us out of the blue. Hail storms are a prime example of this. They can strike without warning and often leave no time for preparations. This could mean that you may not be able to get your car out of danger before it is too late.

Hail can cause severe damage to your vehicle. This is something that most people don't consider. If the hail is large enough, your car may suffer several large dents or broken windows.

Large dents can cause damage to multiple parts of your vehicle. This can lead to expensive repairs. Paintless dents repair can be more affordable than traditional methods, but it can still be costly if multiple dents have to be repaired. 

Hail damage may be covered depending on the type of insurance you have. This means that hail damage to your vehicle is covered by your insurance.               

• Is Hail Damage Covered By Insurance?

Many vehicle owners ask the question is hail damage covered by insurance? If your vehicle insurance includes comprehensive coverage and the policy contains a declaration of storm damage, it is most likely covered. Most comprehensive policies cover hail damage. However, it is best to read the fine print to confirm.

There are sometimes situations that may prevent you from filing a hail damage claim. Insurance companies may place a stop to policies being adjusted or set up if there is a likelihood of a natural disaster or flood occurring soon.

Insurance companies will not allow comprehensive coverage to take effect after a specific date. This is done by insurance companies to discourage people who have liability policies from increasing their coverage to cover a natural catastrophe and then returning to liability. 

This protects insurance companies and reduces claims after natural disasters. You will not be covered for hail damage if you cannot add comprehensive coverage to the policy because of a hold. This means that you are responsible for all damage to your vehicle.

Hail damage is not covered if your vehicle is covered only by a liability policy. In the event of an accident, a liability policy covers only the damage you do to other vehicles or property. Liability-only policies don't cover damage to your vehicle.

• Auto Insurance Deductibles

When you buy a policy for your car, your auto insurance deductible will be determined. You may need a deductible to get comprehensive insurance. This will depend on which policy you have and with what insurance company. Some insurance companies offer zero-deductible policies. 

Others repair hail damage with no deductible and a higher premium. It all depends upon the terms of your policy. If you have comprehensive insurance, your deductible will be due at the time that your vehicle is being repaired. Your deductible doesn't have to be as high as the cost of hail damage repairs.

• Can A Hail Damage Claim Increase Your Premium

Many drivers would like to know if hail damage claims will affect their insurance premiums. This is a question that can vary from one province to the next and also depends on which insurance provider you have.

Most often, when it comes to vehicle insurance claims first-time claims won't raise your premium. Your premium will not go up if you have hail damage. It is important to keep in mind that your premium will depend on which insurance company you are with and the policy you have.

• Can Hail Damage Be Written Off My Vehicle?

Your insurance company may declare your vehicle a total loser if the hail damage is severe enough. Your insurance company will pay the current value of your vehicle if you have comprehensive insurance. If the cost of hail damage repairs exceeds the vehicle's value, it will be written off.

• Are Insurance Companies Different?

Each province generally has its laws and regulations which govern how auto insurance providers deal with claims. However, insurance providers can be different in how they forgive you and adjust your premiums after you file a claim for hail damage.

When looking for an insurance provider make sure you read all the fine print so that you are fully informed about what your policy covers.

• How Do I Tell If I'm Insured For A Hail Damage Claims By Looking At My Policy?

It can be difficult to understand and remember insurance policies. If you don't know what type of insurance you have, or what your policy covers, log in to your policy online. After you log in, go to the website and review the declarations. You should be covered for hail damage if your policy includes comprehensive coverage.
