Be A Smart Driver With Proper Car Insurance

Jul 17, 2008
Having a car insurance may be tricky at sometime: the coverage is either too little or too much, someone hope to simply not buying it, someone do not exactly know what is covered. We will explain these commonly seen car insurance traps in detail.

Having too little. Many drivers think that their state minimum required coverage is sufficient for them. What they don't understand is that, in most states, the minimum required coverage is merely what the state wants you to carry. It has no bearing on what your personal situation is. If have substantial assets, especially if you own a home, those assets will probably not be protected with the state minimum requirement for car insurance. Actually, the best thing to do is talk to your accountant or your income tax preparer to discuss what limits you should carry on your car insurance.

Under the situation that your car insurance does not sufficiently cover the damages, including medical expenses of injured parties, property damage repair or replace, in an at fault accident, you need to settle the bills personally. Although it does not mean the injured part to take y our home, you may still need to pay the bills by borrowing against your property.

Too much coverage. Some prospective car insurance policy owner may think of buying the highest limits of every coverage as a fool-proof approach. This may not be a bad choice, but the premium may be sky high for an average car insurance buyer.

Neglecting car insurance. This is likely to be the biggest pitfall for car insurance. many drivers, neglect the state's car insurance insurance requirement, are still driving on U.S. roads without car insurance. 57% of vehicles in Florida are accountable for being owned and registered in the state, while without car insurance. And you need to provide the minimum required car insurance proof in some states before getting your license plate.

Some vehicle owners deal with the states requirement by purchasing the cheapest required car insurance when their licenses needs to be renewed. They simply lapsed the policy right after they have provided the insurance proof and have the licenses being renewed

Thinking you're insured when you are not. This is more common than people realize and it is most common in the situation of divorce. In the throws of the problems of separation, it is not likely that you will put on the top of your list to check on your car insurance. The rules for this vary from state to state. For example, in some states, if the wife purchases the insurance in her name alone, because she was the one that went to the insurance office and signed the papers, even though she is married, she can delete her spouse from the policy without the spouse's knowledge or consent.

These are only tip of the iceberg. The best practice should be a regular contact with your insurance agent, Appropriate coverage updates are needed when your liability, such as buying a home, increases. You should also renew your policy before renewal to ensure a proper coverage for your changing situation.
