This is something that you do not want to happen. Make sure that the new policy starts at the exact date and time that the current policy is terminated. To be careful about it get your new No-Fault Insurance Policy activated before you cancel your current policy. Remember, you do not have to switch from your current policy after making a claim with them, but you have the legal right to do this, and it will not effect your ongoing claim.
