The Basics Of Car Insurance

Car insurance basically covers you, your passengers and your car in case of an accident.

Many states require you to carry liability coverage in your insurance policy. Liability insurance covers the expenses incurred for the damages for another vehicle with your own if you are at fault.

Collision coverage is when your car insurance will pay for the repairs or replace your car in the case of an accident.

Comprehensive coverage helps you pay for damages to your vehicle that occurs with bad weather, theft and vandalism.

As you would will all insurances, your car insurance will also a deductible. The deductible amount of the claim is your responsibility to pay. Car insurance costs go up as you lower your deductible. If you want to have a higher deductible you car insurance will be less expensive.

Or ask questions when you are inquiring about a certain insurance policy. It is always better to know every aspect before getting insurance and signing the dotted line. Good Luck!
