North Carolina Auto Insurance
Your vehicle may be one of your most expensive assets, if not the most expensive. The state of North Carolina actually mandates that vehicles registered in the state maintain automobile liability coverage. The minimum coverage for bodily injury is $30,000 per person, $60,000 bodily injury for all persons involved in an accident, and for property damage, $25,000. You will also find it extremely challenging to obtain financing on a vehicle purchase if you do not have automobile insurance. Given all those factors, it makes good sense to have proper automobile insurance coverage.
Let’s look at what automobile insurance covers when you take out the policy.
Liability insurance covers you if you are at fault in an accident whether you are hurt, whether you hurt a pedestrian, or whether you injure someone in another vehicle. It can also cover property damage that happens as a result of your vehicle, like if you back into your neighbor’s garage or hit a city light pole.
No-fault liability insurance means that your medical expenses and medical expenses incurred by anyone who is a passenger in your vehicle are covered, and it doesn’t matter who’s at fault in the accident.
If your car is damaged or even totaled in an accident, collision insurance reimburses you, so you’re not left without a vehicle.
Comprehensive Auto Insurance was designed to cover other incidents that could put your vehicle in jeopardy, such as vandalism, theft, or damage because of many natural disasters.
Some insurance policies also cover the driver’s legal expenses if they are involved in a lawsuit, and that can include lawsuits involving loss of life the takes place in your vehicle or in another person’s vehicle.
