Car Insurance


  • Buy uninsured motorist coverage to protect yourself against uninsured or under insured drivers.
  • If you have a car loan and don't carry insurance, the lender may buy insurance for you at five or six times what you would normally pay.
  • Collision coverage takes care of damage to your car from an accident that is all or partially your fault. Normally you'll be responsible for a deductible of $250 or $500, and your insurer pays the rest.
  • Comprehensive coverage takes care of non collision calamities, such as damage from a break-in, theft or windshield cracking.
  • Liability is the most important component of auto insurance and the one to which people pay the least amount of attention. It pays for damage to property and physical injury from an accident that is your fault.
