Foul Ball Damage

Neighborhood pickup baseball or football games are a great way for your whole family to get involved. However, it can also open the door to the chance that your car gets damaged by a foul ball. If you walk home after the game to find that your car has a broken windshield or large dent, will your insurance provide coverage? Use this guide on how to file an insurance claim for any damaged caused by flying balls.

  • File an auto insurance claim – if you have comprehensive coverage as part of your auto insurance policy, you can file a claim for the damage that was caused by the foul ball. Keep in mind that you will still have to pay your deductible, so only file a claim if the repairs will cost more.
  • File a home insurance claim – if you know who threw or hit the ball that caused the damage, you can ask them to file a liability claim with their homeowners insurance. While many home insurance policies will not have a deductible to pay when filing a liability claim, it can lead to higher surcharges when they renew their policy. In many cases, paying for the damage out of pocket will be the best route to go.
  • Damage that happens at a professional game – if you are leaving a baseball game or golf course and find damage done to your car, you will most likely have to file a claim with your auto insurance policy. Even though the damage was caused by the game that was going on, you will most likely not be able to file a claim with the stadium or course, since you take on the risk of damage when you park in the lot.
