Auto Insurance

Some people believe that auto insurance is just a commodity. It isn't.

With auto insurance, you are not only protecting yourself in case of an accident, but also your financial well-being in the future. The choices you make could affect you for the rest of your life. In fact, almost every week you can read about tragic accidents in the news: accidents that cause millions of dollars in damage and liability. Protect yourself by purchasing adequate auto insurance.

Remember that sometimes "you get what you pay for." The minimum amount of insurance required by most states is not much. If you buy just the minimum coverage required by law, you are leaving your assets at considerable risk. You can lose your car, obviously, but if you are at fault in an accident that causes serious injuries or property damage, it could also be your home, your property, your future wages, or your life savings.

An auto insurance typically contains six separate and distinct parts:

  1. Bodily Injury Liability - for injuries the policyholder causes to someone else.
  2. Property Damage Liability - for damage the policyholder caused to someone else's property.
  3. Medical Payments or Personal Injury Protection (PIP) - for treatment of injuries to the driver and passengers of the policyholder's car. At its broadest, PIP can cover medical payments, lost wages and the cost of replacing services normally performed by someone injured in an auto accident.
  4. Collision - for damage to the policyholder's car from a collision. The collision could be with another car, a light post, fire hydrant, etc...
  5. Comprehensive - for damage to the policyholder's car that doesn't involve a collision with another car. Covered risks typically include fire, theft, falling objects, missiles, explosion, earthquake, flood, riot and civil commotion.
  6. Uninsured Motorist - for treatment of policyholder's injuries as a result of a collision with an uninsured driver. Underinsured motorist coverage can also be included in an auto policy. Underinsured motorist coverage comes into play when an at-fault driver has auto liability insurance, but the limit of insurance is inadequate to pay for your damages.

Don't get behind the wheel until you have full auto insurance coverage - it's a gamble that just isn't worth it.  Your agents at Great Northwest Insurance Brokers are happy to create customized insurance quotes for you in mere minutes. Use our Request a Quote tool or call us anytime!
