The first place you need to look for information about this is your insurance policy itself.  There are, I'm sure, fairly specific sentences about payments and cancellation.  And if you made the after-the-deadline payment after you had the accident, that's probably another layer of trouble.

For detailed and reliable advice about your rights in this situation, you need to have the policy and the unique facts of your case reviewed by an attorney in your area.  One place to find a lawyer is our website,
