What is Full Coverage Car Insurance?


No one hopes to encounter a vehicular accident, but a full coverage car insurance policy will spare you of sleepless nights and burnt bank account in case it happens. The owner will be covered up to the limits of the policy in terms of all expenses that matter. These are some possible expenses that an insurance company or provider will reimburse or cover: medical and/or hospital bills of car owner, passengers, bystanders, and persons in the other vehicles involved in the accident; damages to property; repairs on the insured car and other vehicle/s; as well as damages caused by unforeseen and uncontrollable events such as calamities.

The abovementioned are the most basic treatments one can avail with full coverage car insurance. There are actually other types of vehicle policy add-ons that are not usually mentioned, but for the sake of this article, focus is on third party liability, personal injury, and collision. Not everyone has the ability to pay for a full policy simply because it can become really expensive.

Across all states, the law requires that a vehicle or car has third party liability coverage. This ensures that a victim is well compensated for damages in his car or property and will also get paid for medical costs incurred. Personal Injury and Collision are basically availed on freewill to complete the full coverage car insurance yet strongly advised for added protection. Personal injury coverage will take care of you and your passenger’s medical costs while collision coverage will pay for your car damages regardless of whom or which caused the damage. This is beneficial when the vehicle’s market value is still high and not suggested for really old cars anymore because the limit is usually only up to the current market value of the car.

Even if full coverage car insurance is generally expensive, an insurance provider can still offer discounts to make decision making easier for you. Find a company that will provide you with lowest costs, but the best coverage. Research and ask around for quotes. Most people get great deals only after considering and understanding all offers. When before one needs to go office hopping for this or calling one agent after another, now the internet can yield results in seconds while within the comforts of your home office.

Lastly, remember that you will be quoted based on how risky you are as a driver and how good your credit score is. It always pays to be financially stable and a law-abiding citizen, especially on the road.
