Can Your Insurance Deny Your Claim After A Single-Vehicle Accident?
There are certain circumstances in a single-vehicle accident where your insurance will not award you damages. Usually, your claim will be rejected if you were driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs. Another probable cause is if criminal activity was a factor in the crash. It is also possible for the insurance provider to deny you if you broke the law during the accident, such as driving with a suspended license.
