The WideRanging Benefits of Your Insurance Policy

There are more drivers on the road every year. This can lead to an increased likelihood of a collision for you and your family. If you get in a car crash, the auto insurance you own can make a big difference in what happens next. So how do you know what insurance you need and how much to buy? Auto insurance provides you with protection from paying for damage caused to your vehicle or someone else's vehicle and injury to others, yourself, or passengers in your car, and specific other incidents, such as robbery. Car insurance is mandated by law in all states and provinces. Electing to drive without owning insurance could cause you to repair or replace a stolen or damaged vehicle and pay the cost of all the damage that you may have caused. Liability: Personal injury and property damage that you are responsible for will be covered under this type of insurance. It can also cover your legal fees if you are sued. Local laws typically mandate standard amounts of liability insurance, but larger amounts can be purchased and are very beneficial. Personal Injury Protection: Personal injury protection pays for hospital bills and other medical treatment for you and other people in your car, no matter who was responsible for the collision. It is mandated in some states and optional in others. It may also pay for lost wages, service replacement and funeral costs. The minimum amount of this insurance is usually set by the state. Medical Payments: Medical payment coverage can be purchased in states that are not considered no-fault; it pays despite who carries responsibility for an accident. All reasonable medical or funeral expenses will be covered under this type of policy. Collision: This pays for damages to your vehicle caused by an accident. Comprehensive: This kind of insurance protection takes care of any non-collision damages. This could include fire and wind damage, vandalism, and robbery. Uninsured Motorist: This pays for repair and replacement costs when someone with insurance is injured in a crash caused by another person who does not have liability insurance or by a hit-and-run driver. Under-Insured Motorist: Similar to uninsured motorist protection, this kind of insurance protects you against drivers without sufficient insurance protection. Other types of coverage, including emergency road service, are also available. State Farm Agent Clermont
