Be Aware from How Much Should It Cost to have 3 Comprehensive Auto Insurance



How much should it cost to have 3 comprehensive auto insurance?
First, you will need enough insurance to drive legally. (Click "State Car Insurance" above to determine a roadmap of liability insurance requirements for each state.)
Second, you will need enough insurance to safeguard your lifetime from turning into a full time income hell for those who have an auto accident. That may be as easy as buying the minimum coverage mentioned above. 

Who should buy minimum levels of insurance?
Should you own only the clothes lying on your back along with a car on its last legs, you may be what are known "judgment-proof." You may lose if someone decides to consider you to court; however, you have no real assets to take. If you have savings or a home or even expensive jewelry, you are not judgment-proof.
Who should purchase uninsured motorist coverage?
A state may need that you buy uninsured motorist bodily injury coverage, which pays your hospital bills if you are hit by an uninsured driver. A state may require only that you be provided this coverage but permit you to turn it down.
If you buy this coverage, it typically will be exactly the same amounts as your own liability coverage.
Several states also require uninsured motorist property damage, which often pays for some -- but not all -- of the damage to your own car. It does not cover hit-and-run accidents in many states, though.
Do you want collision and comprehensive coverage?
If you owe cash on your vehicle, your lender requires you to have comprehensive and collision coverage, which would repair or replace your vehicle. Insurance pays only for others’ cars.
You have to choose a deductible amount for comprehensive and collision coverage. Damage below this amount is your responsibility to repair.
Do you need medical payments or injury protection?
A state, particularly if it is a no-fault state, may require that you buy injury protection so that your injuries in a car accident will always be covered up to your limits, no matter whose fault the accident was. It usually includes coverage for lost pay as well.
Medical payments coverage is required by a few states but is optional in many, paying medical expenses up to your limits. If you do not have your personal health insurance coverage, you should think about this coverage. If you have a high-deductible health plan, medical payments might help pay the deductible.
How should you reduce auto insurance?
So as of impact and potential savings, we recommend the next steps for drivers trying to reduce their car insurance bills:
• Shop around. You will see that the rates major insurers charge exactly the same driver in the same car can differ by hundreds, sometimes thousands, of dollars.
• Look for auto insurance discounts.
• Consider a named driver exclusion if a person in your household has a high-risk driver history.
• Raise your deductibles.
• Drop collision and comprehensive coverage altogether should you own your car outright.
• Drop other optional coverage for example uninsured motorist or medical payments.
• Reduce the quantity of liability coverage you are buying.
• Park the vehicle, turn in your plates and cancel your insurance policy.
