What is auto insurance?
Auto insurance exists to protect you from hefty financial losses due to unexpected accidents. Essentially, it is a contract between you and your insurance company. If you are involved in a car accident (or experience another hazard involving your vehicle), having auto insurance will assist you greatly, as your insurance company will step in and cover some of or all of the losses resulting from your damaged vehicle, injuries and related losses.
What do auto policies cover?
South Carolina requires you to carry a minimum of:
Bodily Injury Liability: $25,000 per person/$50,000 per accident
Property Damage Liability: $25,000 per accident
South Carolina law requires you to carry uninsured motorists coverage equal to the minimum amounts of liability coverage (25/50/25). There is typically a $200 deductible.
Auto insurers are required to offer you underinsured motorists coverage in South Carolina, but you are not required to purchase it.
The perks included within the policy you choose are generally up to you, but auto policies can offer expansive benefits such as:
Collision Insurance: Covers damage to your own vehicle after a wreck.
Comprehensive Insurance: Pays for damage from non-accident mishaps, like weather damage.
Medical Coverage: Pays for your medical bills and those of your passengers.
Uninsured/underinsured Insurance: Insures you against damage caused by someone else who doesn’t have appropriate liability coverage.
Other coverage offers help for roadside assistance and rental car coverage.
Contact your agent about including these protections in your coverage.
Why do you need car insurance?
In most cases, you are required to have some type of coverage. It is important to not settle for the bare minimum, though, as it could hurt you in the future if something were to happen. Adequate coverage is essential for financial protection if an accident happens. Ensure you’re properly covered with the right plan. Talk to your agent about the most comprehensive and affordable policy for yourself.
