Your Home Insurance Coverage Always Working For You

There are more cars and drivers on the road every year. This could lead to a higher possibility of a car accident for you and your family. The difference between a little aggravation and large pain can be the car insurance you have purchased. So how can you figure out what insurance you need and how much to buy? Coverage requirements will differ by state/province, but typically include the following: Liability: This type of insurance will pay for the damage that you are responsible for. These damages can include personal injury, and property damage. Damages from bodily injury can include medical fees, and lost wages. Property damage includes car repair costs and loss of use of property. It can also cover your defense and court costs if you are sued. State laws typically require standard amounts of liability insurance, but larger amounts can be purchased and are usually recommended. Personal Injury Protection: Personal injury insurance 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. This insurance can also cover lost wages, replacement of services and funeral expenses. State law typically sets minimum amounts. Medical Payments: Medical payment coverage is available in states that are not considered no-fault; it will pay despite who carries responsibility for a crash. All necessary medical or funeral expenses will be paid for under this type of policy. Collision: This pays for damage to your car caused by a collision. Comprehensive: This type of insurance covers any damages not caused by a collision. This may include fire damage, vandalism, and robbery. Uninsured Motorist: This pays for repair and replacement costs when someone with insurance is in a crash caused by another person who does not have insurance. Under-Insured Motorist: This pays for collision expenses when a driver with insurance is in a crash caused by another person who does not have the right amount of insurance to cover the full amount of the damages. Emergency road service, car rental, and other types of coverage can also be purchased. Your car insurance payments vary by company and will depend on several factors, such as: *Your desired coverage *Your vehicle's make and model * Your driving record * Your age, gender and marital status * The place where you live Some people have come to think of car insurance as a necessary evil, but it is something you will need if you are ever in an accident. Review your needs, research your options, and with the guidance of your insurance agency, choose the option that best suits you. State Farm Clermont
