Auto Insurance Information
What is auto insurance?
Auto accidents can happen, even to the best of us. An auto insurance policy can help cover the repairs to your vehicle and medical costs in the event of an accident. It can also protect you should you be found at fault for property damage and injuries to other people.
What are the coverages?
- Bodily Injury Liability provides protection if you injure or kill someone while operating your car.
- Property Damage Liability provides protection if your car damages someone else's car or property.
- Medical Payments pays for the medical expenses for you and your passengers if hurt in an accident.
- Uninsured Motorists Coverage pays for your injuries caused by an uninsured driver, or a hit-and-run driver. In Mississippi, there is also coverage for damage to your vehicle.
- Comprehensive Coverage pays for losses resulting from incidents other than collision. For example, claims involving: deer; theft, vandalism, flood, hail or fire.
- Collision Coverage pays for damage to your car when your hits, or is hit by, another vehicle or object.
- Roadside Assistance- depending on the company, this could cover a tow or a could cover everything from a flat tire, to running out of gas, to locking your keys in your car.
- Rental Reimbursement- provides you with a rental car while your vehicle is in the shop due to a covered claim.
You can buy all or just some of these coverages. Mississippi and Alabama require that you carry liability insurance for bodily injury and property damage by law. We work with our insureds and our many companies to find the best coverage and protection for the best prices.
