If you get in a car wreck, the car insurance you own can make a big difference in the experience you have. So how can you find out what insurance you need and the quantity you should purchase? Car crashes can lead to many different expenses, which can all be paid for based on the insurance policy you own. Without insurance, you risk having to pay the total price of the harm or injury you cause others or of repairing or replacing your vehicle if it is damaged or stolen. Liability: It pays for the expenses you have caused to others in a car accident, including injury and property damage. Bodily injury damages can include medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering. Property damage can refer to damaged property or loss of property use. If you are in legal trouble, liability insurance can pay for your legal fees. Recommended, higher levels of insurance can be purchased that take care of more events than the stripped-down, state-mandated insurance.

It pays you or your passengers for medical treatment resulting from a crash, regardless of who may have been at fault, and is often called no-fault coverage. This insurance may also pay for lost earnings, replacement of services and funeral costs. Local law typically sets minimum amounts. Medical Payments: This type of coverage can be purchased in non-no-fault states and will pay regardless of who is responsible for an accident.

Collision: Damages resulting from a collision will be covered under this kind of car insurance. Comprehensive: Protect your vehicle from damages from other sources when you buy this type of coverage. This may include protection from theft, vandalism, and weather damage. Uninsured Motorist: If you are in an accident with a driver without insurance, this type of insurance will make sure you are covered. Under-Insured Motorist: Many drivers have liability insurance that might not be able to pay for all the expenses they are supposed to take care of. Under-insured motorist coverage protects you from those drivers. Emergency road service, car rental, and other types of coverage can also be purchased. What you pay for car insurance varies by company and will depend on multiple factors, such as: * What coverage you select * The make and model of the vehicle you own * Your driving record * Your age, sex and marital status * The place where you live Don't procrastinate buying car insurance; you shouldn't drive a car without it.
