My car had expired car registration tags when I was involved in a accident. The company has already told me it’s a “Not At Fault Collision Claim.” The adjuster wants pics of the damage. But, also the registration. When taking the picture is when I saw that my car tags were expired. Will this negate my claim? Washington State-Geico.
If your expired registration is the only issue with your claim, it shouldn’t cause a problem with the claim recovery. It doesn’t change the “risk” on the vehicle and the insurance is purchased and paid for. You can be honest with your carrier, say you didn’t realize your registration was expired, and get to the DMV as soon as possible to renew the registration.
