My fault | Will my insurance company do anything

I was not paying attention at a gas station and side swiped one of the pillars and cause bit of damage on my car. I want to file a claim but will my insurance company do anything about it since I am the one that caused the damage?


Well, they will fix your car as long as you have collision coverage. If you only carry liability, you will have to pay for your own damages out of pocket. Your insurance company will pay for damages to the pillar (if any) from the liability coverage, but it will not pay for your car unless you have collision.
