Buying Home Insurance More Than Just Money

Each year, more cars and drivers hit America's roads. As this number goes up, the chances of a car wreck will also increase. The difference between a small bother and large pain can be the car insurance you have purchased. How can you determine what insurance you need and how you can buy it? Insurance requirements vary by state/province, but usually include the following: Liability: This kind of insurance can pay for the damage that you are responsible for. These damages can include bodily injury, and property damage. It can also cover your legal fees if you are sued. Recommended, higher levels of liability insurance can be purchased that cover more events than the lower, state-mandated varieties. Personal Injury Protection: This type of insurance pays for the medical treatment for you or other people in your car, no matter who was at fault in the accident. It is occasionally referred to as no-fault coverage. The minimum amount of personal injury protection is typically set by the state. Medical Payments: Medical payment coverage is available in non-no-fault states and will pay no matter who is responsible for the accident. If you buy this type of coverage, you will receive coverage for all types of medical or funeral expenses. Collision: This pays for damages to your car caused by a collision. Comprehensive: Applies if your car is stolen or damaged by causes other than an accident, including fire, wind, hail, flood or vandalism. Uninsured Motorist: If you are hit by a driver without insurance, this type of insurance will make sure you are covered. Under-Insured Motorist: Similar to uninsured motorist protection, this kind of insurance covers you from people driving without sufficient insurance coverage. Other policies, including emergency road service, are also available. State Farm Agent Clermont
