CARS Protection Plus has been in the auto coverage industry for a few decades. They know all too well what is the best type of auto coverage that you need. One individual’s car insurance might look different from another is, and why this is, is because there are different factors that come into play that can make all the difference. One of these factors is where you live and whether you lease or finance your vehicle. There are different types of auto insurances and knowing what is required and what your financial situation is determines which policy is best for you.
A basic car insurance policy includes the following:
Liability coverage, which usually includes two types of coverage, bodily injury liability coverage and property damage liability coverage, both of which can protect you financially against other people’s claims in the event of an accident.
Uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage, this type of insurance protects you directly from other drivers. It pays you if you are injured in a hit-and-run accident or by a driver who either does not have liability insurance or does not have enough to cover your damages.
Personal injury protection is for states that have a no-fault law. It means any driver involved in an accident must file a claim with their own insurance company, no matter who caused the accident.
Medical payments coverage helps pay for the medical and funeral expenses for you or any passengers in your car. This insurance may also cover you if you are hit by a car as a pedestrian.
Collision coverage helps pay to repair or replace your car if it is damaged after colliding with another object, like a car or tree. This type of coverage is usually required if you lease or finance your car.
Comprehensive coverage helps pay for damage or loss that results from something other than a collision. This could be anything from theft, falling objects, earthquakes, vandalism, windstorms, and hail. It can also protect you against damage from animals like deer.
When considering how much coverage to buy, there are a few things to think about. One is your coverage limits, consider your financial situation. Weigh the premium you can afford each month against how much you could realistically pay out of pocket if you were in an accident. Second is your deductible, a higher deductible will lower your premium. After you research all this information then you will be able to figure out what insurance is best for you. Do not forget to compare quotes from many different insurance companies.
