Can I claim damages by a pole to my insurance company?

by Bob

I was backing into a parking space at a train station today. I backed into a metal pole which I did not see and some damage to my rear bumper occured.

Can a claim be made to my auto insurance company for the damage caused?


Hello Bob,

I am sorry to hear about the mishap. Your insurance company will cover your damage as long as you have Collision coverage in your policy. To read about collision, visit:

if you do not carry this coverage, it is unlikely that the insurance company would pay anything.

Good Luck,
