Pros of Auto Insurance
What is Auto Insurance?
Provides financial protection against vehicle damage or injuries that result from traffic accidents

How it works: pay a premium (monthly payment), and if you get in an accident, the insurance company pays your losses in your policy

Insurance rates vary widely
Useful facts
Your premium is the monthly payment you make. Your deductible is the money you agree to pay out-of-pocket before the insurance company pays toward a claim resulting from a loss or damage.

If your car is worth less than $2,000, it won't be worth it to buy comprehensive and collision coverage.

Just because your state requires a minimum amount of insurance doesn't mean that's exactly what you should purchase

Other types of insurance including health insurance and homeowners insurance may pay for damages due to an auto accident.

Drivers who are prone to traffic violations or accidents will have to pay more for insurance than safe drivers.
Rate Factors
Age of Driver
Particular area lived in
Urban vs. rural settings
Marital Status
Driving record
Price of car
Popularity of car
Coverages cont.
- Pays for accidental bodily injury and property damages to others.
- Medical expenses, pain and suffering and lost wages.
- Damage to property and automobiles.
- Pays defense and court costs.

State laws determine how much liability coverage you must purchase, but you can always get more coverage than your state requires.

$25,000 for injuries, per person per accident.
$50,000 for total injuries per accident.
$20,000 for property damage per accident.
