Let's Get Started Car Insurance Is A Must Did you know in 48 states, you’re required by law to carry car insurance? Yes, even in Columbia, SC auto insurance is required! Not only is car insurance designed to protect you, but it also protects others. Common Car insurance basics and options Insurance protects you and your assets in case of loss, injury or damage; either caused by you, or by someone else.Auto insurance usually consists of the following protections:Liability: protects others involved in accident for their property damage, car damage(s) and/or injury(s), in case you are found at fault.Collision: in the event your car is damaged by a collision with another car or object.Comprehensive: if your car is damaged by anything other than collision, most commonly glass damage, windshield breakage, colliding with an animal.But additional protection may include:Medical Payments - a selected limit of injury protection, even if you are not at fault; if you have to pay on an injury for yourself or a passenger.Emergency Road Service - a selected, optional coverage, most useful if you are ever stranded in your vehicle.Uninsured Motorist Protection - provides protection for you and your passengers in a not at-fault accident, against uninsured drivers.Rental Reimbursement - after a car accident, you need a rental car while yours is being repaired, your carrier can reimburse your expense. Insurance Follows The Car When considering your car insurance protection, in most states, the auto insurance follows the car. This means if you allow a family member or friend to drive your car around Columbia, SC or the surrounding areas, and they have an at -fault accident, your car insurance pays. The at-fault driver would receive charges against their drivers license, but would not be responsible for damage done to another's property, car, or their injuries. When hauling or pulling a trailer, the only insurance coverage available (without a separate insurance policy on the trailer) is liability. If you are involved in an accident and your trailer becomes dented or destroyed while attached to your vehicle, without a trailer policy to cover the physical damage, you would be paying out-of-pocket. Trailers come in a variety of types: utility, covered, box, horse, boat, gooseneck, flatbed, customized, and enclosed and range from $1500 to $100,000+. Insuring them correctly is affordable. Your car insurance is primary. Your driver, if they have their own car insurance, would be secondary, and only if your limits of liability were completely used up and you had no Personal Umbrella insurance policy.If the driver does not have insurance and you do not have a Personal Umbrella policy, legal actions could occur for resolution towards the owner of the car.
