In general, if you were not at fault for the accident and you make a claim for personal injury, your rates should not go up. This is because your insurance company will seek reimbursement from the at-fault driver's insurance company, rather than paying out of their own pocket.
However, if you were partially or fully at fault for the accident, making a claim could result in higher rates. This is because your insurance company will have to pay out for your damages, and they may see you as a higher-risk driver as a result.
It's important to note that every insurance policy is different, so it's always a good idea to review your policy and speak with your insurance agent to understand how making a claim could impact your rates. Additionally, if you're unsure about who was at fault for the accident, it's best to consult with a personal injury attorney who can help you navigate the legal process and protect your rights.
