How do you isolate the blame of the increase on the 'non-fault' incident???

I ask because I've just been through this, posted on here for advice, but because of the costs involved I was forced down the insurance route. My insurance company also assured me that my premium would be uneffected (so did an insurance broker; not linked to my policy).

Are you sure the premium didn't just rise because of general escalating costs?? I mean, my premium has tended to increase every single year, yet this is the first claim I've ever made (again, this was a non-fault claim dealth with solely with their insurers).
