In Oklahoma, car insurance premiums rise by an average of 25 percent after a single claim, according to a new insuranceQuotes.com report.

That’s the fifth-lowest hike in the country.

Nationally, premiums go up by an average of 38 percent after one claim and 86 percent after two claims.

In Oklahoma, a driver with two claims pays an average of 64 percent more for car insurance than a claim-free driver.

The biggest lesson for consumers is not to file a small claim, according to Laura Adams, senior analyst at insuranceQuotes.com.
