Cheap insurance is all over the place. Everybody with a car and a driver’s license wants insurance just to keep their license from getting cancelled. Most of them are against getting insured claiming careful driving as a reason. That is why, insurance companies receive a whole lot of clients who ask for the bare minimum, simply the cheapest insurance covering what all needs to be covered to keep their licenses intact. A lot of people do not take the time to read their insurance policy carefully before signing it. As long as it is cheap and covers the basics, as they would be informed by the insurance company representative, they will sign it. The only time when these people will get to know the real details of their policy is when they have to place a claim. They might or might not be covered adequately for their claim because of the hasty decisions.
While this kind of insurance covers accident it might not cover the cases like running into a parked car by mistake or scratching your car horribly in the parking lot. You must always prefer to buy all the insurance you can manage to pay for. Opting for minimal insurance in a popular and large company might not be the same as opting for an insurance that covers various other damages from a smaller company at a marginal price difference. Also, while you are carrying insurance, make sure you make the monthly payments on time. While the insurance companies will invariably send you reminders, you could get into the danger of having your insurance cancelled due to non payment if you neglect. A cancelled insurance is obviously no good at all in times of crisis.
Also insurances vary from state to state. Meaning the minimum coverage you would need in Florida might not be the same as it is in Lousiana. Florida for example is one of the no-fault states. This means that whether you are responsible for causing the accident or not, you will be covered for your medical expenses and damages up to the figure of about ten thousand dollars. If you are not covered at least with the minimum, you might be forced to pay for the damages incurred on the third party as well. In the state of Florida, minimum insurance covers Personal Injury Protection and Property Damage. It also covers the third party damages up to a certain limit if you are at fault. Your medical bills or even funeral expenditure will be taken care of up to $10,000. A deductible is also applicable in the state, $1000 being the minimum.
When coverage is concerned, it is best if you carry a Body Injury Liability. This covers the injuries incurred on the other people involved in the accident. It is not required by the state’s minimum policy, but if you do not hold Body Injury Liability, you could have your license suspended by the Financial Responsibility Law. Full Insurance could mean different things in different companies. But it mostly covers both collision and comprehensive. Other kinds of coverage are the Uninsured Motorist, which covers the case in which the other person is at fault but does not have resources to pay up and medical coverage which ensures that your and the other party’s medical bills are paid to the full.
