On every stretch of pavement, drivers face accident risks. These could quickly become costly, but the appropriate car insurance can help you control accident costs and better recover from the ramifications of these hazards. It’s an important benefit to have, no matter how safe a driver you think you are. You never know when an accident might happen, or how much it is going to cost you.
Not just any auto policy will do. All drivers and all vehicles are different, and you must have the right policy for you. This could be vastly different from the policy of the driver next to you on the highway. That’s why it’s imperative that you work with an expert agent to figure out the right combination of benefits that will offer you optimized protection.
By law, North Carolina drivers must have minimum amounts of car insurance. The minimum limits are:
- Bodily Injury Liability Insurance: $30,000 per person/$60,000 per accident
- Property Damage Liability Insurance: $25,000 per accident
- Uninsured Motorist Bodily Injury Coverage: $30,000 per person/$60,000 per accident
- Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist Property Damage Insurance: $25,000 per accident
Liability insurance is also called at-fault insurance, because North Carolina requires drivers who cause wrecks to pay for the damage done to others - such as other drivers. Your required bodily injury and property damage liability insurance will help you meet these obligations.
On the other hand, you carry uninsured motorist coverage to protect yourself in the event other parties do not follow the rules. If you become the victim of a hit-and-run accident, this coverage can pay for your own injuries or property damage because the offender cannot. It can also pay in situations where you are hit by another driver who does not have appropriate liability insurance.
However, you should always buy more coverage than the required minimum limits. The more coverage you have, the better protection you will have against the ramifications of vehicle accidents.
Some of the extra benefits to add into your auto policy include:
- Higher liability and un/underinsured motorist coverage limits.
- Collision insurance that pays for damage to your own car following a wreck.
- Comprehensive insurance that pays for vehicle damage from non-accident hazards, such as fires, theft, vandalism or weather damage.
- Medical payments coverage to help you cover your own medical bills if you get hurt in a wreck.
Other benefits can include roadside assistance coverage, rental car reimbursement, gap insurance and specialty coverage for antique or collectible cars.
Depending on the cost risks you pose to your insurer, the premium of your auto insurance policy can vary. Some of the factors that might influence your premiums include:
- Your vehicle’s value
- The limits and deductibles of your chosen policy
- Your driving record and history of accidents
- The number of claims you have made on your policy
