What is auto insurance?
Auto insurance protects you against financial loss if you have an accident. It is a contract between you and the insurance company. You agree to pay the premium and the insurance company agrees to pay your losses as defined in your policy.
Auto insurance provides property, liability and medical coverage:
- Property coverage pays for damage to or theft of your car.
- Liability coverage pays for your legal responsibility to others for bodily injury or property damage.
- Medical coverage pays for the cost of treating injuries, rehabilitation and sometimes lost wages and funeral expenses.
An auto insurance policy is comprised of six different kinds of coverage. Most states require you to buy some, but not all, of these coverages. If you're financing a car, your lender may also have requirements.
Most auto policies are for six months or a year. Your insurance company should notify you by mail when it's time to renew the policy and to pay your premium.
Common Auto Insurance Questions:
What is auto insurance?
Auto insurance assists you financially in covering vehicle damage costs in the unfortunate case of an accident. It is a paid agreement between you and your insurance provider. After filing a claim following an accident, your provider will step in and assist you in covering significant damage costs depending on what you are responsible for.
What do auto policies cover?
North Carolina Motor Vehicle Law requires that Automobile Liability coverage be continuously maintained. The minimum coverage requirements are
$30,000 Bodily Injury for each person
$60,000 total Bodily Injury for all persons in an accident
$25,000 for Property Damage.
Motor Vehicle Law also requires Uninsured/ Underinsured Motorists coverage. Auto insurance policies with the minimum Bodily Injury and Property Damage limits are required to include Uninsured Motorists coverage. Policies with limits greater than the minimum must provide combined Uninsured/ Underinsured Motorists coverage. UIM coverage does not provide protection against property damage. The UIM coverage will pay a maximum of the difference between the other driver’s Liability limits and your UIM limits.
The perks included within the policy you choose are generally up to you, but auto policies can offer expansive benefits such as:
Collision Insurance: Covers damage to your own vehicle after a wreck.
Comprehensive Insurance: Pays for damage from non-accident mishaps, like weather damage.
Medical Coverage: Pays for your medical bills and those of your passengers.
Uninsured/underinsured Insurance: Insures you against damage caused by someone else who doesn’t have appropriate liability coverage.
Other coverage offers help for roadside assistance and rental car coverage. Contact your agent about including these protections in your coverage.
Why do you need car insurance?
You are required to have at least some type of auto insurance policy in most areas. However, settling for the bare minimum coverage just to have it can jeopardize the future of you and your vehicle. It’s important to get adequate coverage to assure the safety of your future in the case of an accident. We will help you in finding the best policy for you and your specific scenario.
Why do you need auto insurance?
It's really all about protecting yourself financially.
- If you're in an accident or your car is stolen, it costs money, often a lot of money, to fix or replace it.
- If you or any passengers are injured in an accident, medical costs can be extremely expensive.
- If you or your car is responsible for damage or injury to others, you may be sued for much more than you're worth.
- Not only is having insurance a prudent financial decision, many states require you to have at least some coverage.
Questions to ask your agent
Your Independent Agent is an advocate for finding auto insurance that meets your specific needs. Here are a few things to consider as you prepare for the discussion:
- How much can you afford to pay if you get in an accident? (To keep premiums low you may want to have a higher deductible and be willing to pay more for repairs.)
- What is the insurance company's level of service and ability to pay claims?
- What discounts are available? (Ask about good driver, multiple policy and student discounts.)
- What's the procedure for filing and settling a claim? (Ask who to call and what happens after you file a claim.)
