The FarReaching Benefits of Your Insurance Coverage

Each year, more automobiles and drivers hit the highways. With so many vehicles on the road, crashes can happen. The difference between a little bother and large obstacle can be your insurance. But why is insurance necessary and just how much do you need? Car crashes can lead to many different expenses, which your insurance might be able to pay for based on the type of coverage you own. Your state or province definitely mandates some type of auto insurance. Electing to drive without insurance could cause you to repair or replace a stolen or damaged vehicle or pay the cost of any damage for which you might be responsible. Liability: This kind of insurance can pay for the damage that you have caused. These damages may include personal injury, and property damage. Damages from bodily injury can include medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering. Property damage can refer to damaged property and loss of use of property. If you are sued, it also pays your legal fees. Local laws usually require standard amounts of liability insurance, but higher amounts can be purchased and are very beneficial. Personal Injury Protection: This is required in some states and is optional in others. Sometimes referred to as no-fault coverage, this pays the medical treatment for you or your passengers regardless of who was at fault. It may also pay for lost wages, service replacement and funeral expenses. Local government usually sets minimum amounts. Medical Payments: Medical payment coverage is available in states that are not considered no-fault; it will pay regardless of who may be responsible. This insurance will pay for an insured person's reasonable medical or funeral expenses for bodily injury from an accident. Collision: Pays for damage to your vehicle caused by an accident. Comprehensive: This applies if your vehicle is stolen or damaged by causes other than a wreck, including fire, wind, hail, flood or vandalism. Uninsured Motorist: Many drivers are breaking the law by driving without purchasing the right amount of auto insurance. This type of coverage will protect you if one of these drivers hit you. Under-Insured Motorist: Similar to uninsured coverage, this kind of insurance protects you against drivers without sufficient insurance protection. Other policies, including emergency road service, are also available. What you pay for car insurance varies based on the company and will depend on multiple factors, such as: *Your selected coverage *Your vehicle's make and model * Whether or not you have been in an accident * Your age, sex and marital status * Where you live Don't wait around to buy auto insurance; you should never be on the road without it.
