Uninsured motorist insurance protects you, your passengers and your car in the event of injury or damage when an at-fault driver has no auto insurance.

Collision Coverage

Collision coverage pays to repair your own vehicle in the event something collides with you. Your claim will be reduced by the amount of your collision deductible. Your car is considered "totaled" when the repair costs exceed a certain threshold of the car's value, such as 70 percent. Your lender will require this coverage until you have paid for your car in full.

Comprehensive (other than collision) Coverage

Comprehensive pays the cost of replacing or repairing your car if it’s stolen or damaged by fire, vandalism, hail, falling objects, or an event other than a collision. Your policy won't pay to replace a stolen car unless you report the theft to police. Payment is limited to your car's actual cash value, minus your deductible.

How much car insurance do I need?

◾If you’re making car payments, chances are the lender will require the vehicle to have comprehensive and collision coverage. ◾The deductible determines how much you pay out-of-pocket after a covered loss. So, if you’re looking to save money, consider increasing your deductible, which will lower your auto insurance rate. ◾The age of your vehicle is another factor. If you have an older vehicle with a lower value, it might not make sense to pay for more expensive coverage like comprehensive and collision. ◾You should also consider how much liability coverage you need. Remember, if you only have $30,000 in liability coverage and you cause an accident that generates $100,000 in damages then you could be liable for the amount above your coverage limit.

Why minimum coverage is a bad idea

Why Minimum Coverage is a Bad Idea Auto insurance is one of those things that you can never really have too much of. If you don’t have it, or don’t have enough, a significant accident could leave you with thousands of dollars worth of bills to pay. That type of calamity could bankrupt just about anyone. Minimum coverage, while satisfying state laws for auto insurance, is a bad idea for many financial reasons. If you opt to get minimum automobile insurance coverage, you are probably worried about the monthly bill. The problem with minimum coverage however, is that while you may be saving a more money each month, if you get into a major accident and are at fault, the money your insurance company pays will be capped at $20,000 for property damage to the vehicle or property that you hit and $30,000 to the person you injure. All costs above will be your responsibility to pay. If the person you’ve injured has huge medical bills, you’ll be responsible for them after your insurance coverage has been exhausted. Minimum coverage is a bad idea not just for financial reasons, but for ethical reasons as well. If you have minimal coverage, and you’re responsible for an accident that costs thousands of dollars to another person and can’t pay for any of it, you’ve burdened another person with huge debt.
