Auto Insurance Information
Auto Insurance in Scranton, PA and Clark Summit, PA
Your car is valuable to you. In fact, it probably represents one of your most expensive investments. To protect all you’ve put into your vehicle, you need auto insurance.
What is auto insurance?
Essentially, car insurance is a contract between you and an insurance company. It’s there to protect you from financial losses because of accidents you cannot control. If you have a wreck or other accident, your insurer agrees to pay for some or all the vehicle’s damage and other losses. For the simple cost of a policy premium, you’ll have financial security in case of unfortunate mishaps.
What do auto policies cover?
Almost all drivers have choices about what’s in their policies. Most can contain a variety of protections:
Bodily injury liability coverage pays for their medical bills (and in some cases deaths)
Property damage liability pays for damage to the other driver’s property, like their car.
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.
Ask your agent how to add these protective elements to your coverage.
Why do you need car insurance?
Most states require you to carry at least some of this coverage, usually liability insurance. Still, don’t sell yourself short by taking the bare minimum in protection. Let your agent help you determine a more comprehensive coverage portfolio.
We cannot understate the importance of having adequate coverage. It will help you protect yourself financially. Rather than put your savings on the line trying to pay for a damaging accident, let your insurance step in. In the end, you’ll be glad you always carried coverage.
