If I let my friend drive my car, will he or she be covered?
In most cases, car insurance goes with the car rather than the driver. Hence, as long as your friend has a license, your insurance should cover any damage that might occur.
What is a lapse in insurance?
A lapse occurs when you stop paying for or cancel your car insurance. We recommend avoiding an insurance lapse as this can result in costly consequences.
What is a deductible?
When submitting an insurance claim, a deductible is an amount you’re responsible for before the insurance agency covers the rest.
How long do tickets and/accidents stay on my driving record?
Typically, driving accidents and tickets stay on your record for 3 years, but depending on the severity of the violation, they could be there for up to 10. For example, an “at-fault” accident will remain on your driving record for at least 6 years from the date of conviction.
Is hail damage covered?
Comprehensive insurance covers hail damage as it falls under the category of “act of nature”. Still, this usually involves a deductible. If severe damage has occurred, you are covered up to the actual cash value of the vehicle.
Is my car covered for damage caused by a flood?
Comprehensive coverage covers flood damage.
I drove through a pothole and damaged my car. Is the damage covered?
If you have collision coverage or all-perils coverage in your car insurance plan, you are covered for all pothole damage. Driving through a pothole is considered a single-vehicle collision and is, therefore, a covered loss.
How do limits and deductibles impact my premium?
Your premium is how much you pay your insurance agency regularly to keep your coverage in place. Depending on the insurance type and specific policies, you can pay your premium monthly, quarterly, biannually, or annually. Whether it’s home, car, or life insurance, limits and deductibles are common factors that affect your premium rates.
An insurance limit is the maximum amount covered when making a claim—usually, the higher your coverage limit, the higher your premium. Our insurance agents can guide you in the right direction when it comes to pinpointing the perfect coverage limit for your needs.
An insurance deductible is the amount of money you have to pay out of pocket for a covered claim. Generally, you may be able to save money on premiums by selecting policies with higher deductibles. Consult with our insurance professionals to see what’s in your best interest.
When should I review my insurance protection?
