Auto insurance coverage: If you included collision coverage when buying car insurance, it would take care of your auto body repair, subject to your deductible. If you also damaged the telephone pole, your liability coverage, which is required by law, would pay for that repair. Remember that your insurance doesn’t start to pay out until you’ve surpassed your deductible amount. So if the cost of repairs is $450 and your deductible is $500, there is little reason to make a claim. Even if the repair costs are $600, you may want to pay out-of-pocket rather than making a claim for $100 and potentially incurring an increase in future car insurance rates. You may want to think this one through thoroughly and check your policy before making that call.
