Do You Really Want the Cheapest Insurance?
Low-cost auto insurance quotes capture your attention, we see it everyday in the media. However I must ask….. will the online, cut-rate insurance company be there for you when your car meets a tree late at night? To get the lowest rate, you may have just the minimum level of liability protection required in Alabama. That may lower your premium, but your coverage may not be enough to pay damages after a car accident.
Your liability insurance is what pays if you cause a car accident and someone is injured. Let’s say the liability coverage listed on your policy shows split limits of 25/50/25. That means $25,000 is the maximum amount payable for bodily injury per person, up to $50,000 per accident. The third number represents the maximum payable by your policy for property damage, or $25,000. “Property damage” refers to the other vehicle, signs, poles, landscaping etc. We routinely see liability claims that exceed these policy limits. Higher limits are easy to get and more affordable than you may think.
It may seem that saving money is the most important consideration, but it’s not always the smartest approach to protecting yourself against the very real risks associated with driving. With lawsuits becoming more common after car accidents, it’s easy to see why the minimum liability protection may simply not be enough to protect you after a car accident.
