Auto & Home Insurance
Auto and homeowners insurance are among the most important coverages to have. Both coverages can protect you financially against costs such as vandalism and injury-related medical expenses. Selecting homeowners and auto insurance policies can be complex and confusing. Our agency can help you learn more about both coverages so you can decide on the right coverage for your home and car.
What Do Auto Insurance Policies Cover?
Coverages vary depending on factors such as driving history and car model, but a standard auto insurance policy might include the following:
- Liability insurance helps insure against claims arising from damage or injuries you cause to others if you are at fault in a wreck.
- Bodily injury liability coverage helps cover their medical bills (and sometimes, deaths).
- Property damage liability helps pay for damage to the other driver’s property, such as their car.
- Collision insurance helps cover damage to your vehicle after a wreck.
- Comprehensive insurance helps pay for non-accident mishaps, such as weather damage.
- Medical payments (MedPay) coverage helps pay for your medical bills and those of your passengers if injuries are sustained in an accident.
- Personal injury protection (PIP) coverage helps pay for your medical bills and lost wages caused by an accident. This coverage is only available in certain states; check with your agent to see if it’s offered where you live.
- Uninsured/underinsured Insurance helps insure against damage caused by someone else who doesn’t have adequate liability coverage.
