FAQ

People often ask us

Collision coverage is when you have a collision with something like another car. Comprehensive coverage is when it's anything else other than a collision—such as damage from road debris, fire or theft. Most people would have both coverages when using their car on a regular basis. Sometimes when someone is just storing a car, they may only keep comprehensive coverage since they aren't using it on the road therefore, it's unlikely to be in a collision.

The premium you pay is a direct reflection of your driving record for the past 3 to 5 years depending on the insurance company. Insurance companies order driving records from the DMV of your residence state and from other states where you've been licensed. Statistics show that drivers with tickets or accidents are more likely to have additional accidents than drivers with clean records.

It's generally agreed among insurance professionals that the state minimum policy limits aren't enough. In many cases limits of "100/300/100" are appropriate. In others "250/500/250" may make more sense. This means:

  • $100,000 ($250,000) per person for bodily injury
  • $300,000 ($500,000) per accident for bodily injury
  • $100,000 ($250,000) per accident for property damage

The limits most appropriate for you will depend on a number of factors. Because in most areas medical treatment runs within a certain cost range, the limit for covering property damage is the one you may want to take into account.

If you live in an area where you feel that even a common accident, that was your fault, would generate property damage of more than $100,000, you may want to consider higher limits. Remember, property damage is the value of the other person's car plus any other property damaged during the accident if you're at fault.

In most cases, yes, as long as they have the permission or reasonable belief from the insured that they can use the vehicle. The insured is the person named on the insurance policy and their spouse, if applicable.

There are some exclusions, so you would need to look at your particular insurance policy to make sure. Remember, everyone in your household must be listed on your insurance policy if they have a license. For example, if a girlfriend you live with uses your car, she may not be covered if you didn't list her on your insurance policy. On the other hand, if you live separately, she could use your car with your permission and be covered.

Most auto insurance policies pay the actual cash value (ACV) of a vehicle totaled in an accident. The ACV is equal to the market value of an auto immediately before the accident.

Insurers must use a fair and reasonable method to determine the value of your car. If you have concerns about their decision, you may be able to negotiate with your insurer by telling them why your car may have had more value than what the insurance company originally determined.
