US Market: Why Does Anyone Need Auto Insurance?

Here’s Why You Need It

Car insurance is mandatory and it’s against the law not to have one in most states. Although it’s expensive there are tons of benefits that you can enjoy from it. Do you often ask yourselves the question why you need auto insurance? Well, here we dig a little bit deeper and give you the answers that you were looking for!

  • You can compensate somebody else for the accident that you have caused.

You are definitely going to be held responsible for a crash that you have caused and there will be many costs that you should cover such as medical injuries and car repairs. If you have car insurance, the costs will be covered by the insurance company. Without it you will be paying from your own pocket.

Do you know when you should be paying out of pocket in lieu of auto insurance? If there are some small bumps or scratches, consider making an agreement with the other involved driver to repair them yourselves because if you report them to the insurance company they may cost you more. Always weigh the costs before reporting to the insurance company.

  • You can get your car fixed no matter what or who caused the accident.

There are insurance policies that cover different damages of your car or even replace it. When you have auto insurance you can be sure that your car will be repaired even if it got damaged by hail or fire, or if you were in a car accident regardless of fault depending on the policy you have.

Bottom line, auto insurance is one way to protect your assets in the case of an accident.

  • You protect yourselves and the passengers.

If you or your passengers got hurt in a car accident, your car insurance will pay for all the medical costs, bills, surgeries, doctor’s visits and more. In the USA, those medical bills could be extremely high.

  • You protect your assets.

Do you want to risk your hard-earned money by not taking car insurance? Car repairs can cost a lot of money and we believe that you wouldn’t want to give them all to the auto mechanic. Auto insurance is one way to protect your assets in the case of an accident.

  • You protect your auto lender.

Did you know that lenders are the most interested in auto insurance? They prefer comprehensive insurance most of the time, since you can get your car replaced if it is very damaged. The loan is secured by the car, and if the car gets to be damaged it immediately drops its price. In this way all repairs will be covered by the insurance company.

  • You are obliged by law to have it.

Although you have lots of reasons and benefits to pay for auto insurance you should be all informed that you have to have it and you can’t go without one. This is such an obvious reason that explains why you should have auto insurance, but at least you will know that you will be protected when an accident occurs.

Do you know which State doesn’t require auto insurance? New Hampshire! Although you should still get some if you have a loan on your vehicle, or don’t want to be liable for personal injuries or property damage to third parties.
