Ever Wonder How the Massachusetts At-Fault Accident Surcharge Works?

Automobile accidents are common.  Did you ever wonder how it's determined whose fault it is, and how the surcharge process works in Massachusetts? Can you appeal?

The Massachusetts Commissioner of Insurance, Joseph G. Murphy, recently issued the following document:  Frequently Asked Questions About At-Fault Accident Surcharges for Personal Automobile Insurance policies.   The document also has links to the Massachusetts Regulation 211 CMR 74.00 which goes into detail about at-fault situations such as Rear End Collisions, Collisions with Parked Vehicles, Out of Lane Collisions, and so forth.

Although it's 6 pages long, it is written language that is fairly easy to understand.  It helps one understand at fault situations, how surcharges are assessed, how long a surcharge will last on an automobile insurance policy, as well as how to appeal a surcharge.
