What is Rental Reimbursement Coverage, and why do you need it?

When you're in a car accident that seriously damages your vehicle, your vehicle may be towed to a body shop and out of commission for significant time, and you are stuck wondering how you are going to get around during its repair.

What does rental reimbursement cover?

Rental reimbursement coverage will help you pay for a rental car—but only if you need the rental car because of a covered loss. For example, if your car is damaged in an accident that's covered by your insurance policy, your rental reimbursement coverage will typically help pay for the rental car.

What is PIP coverage/medical payment coverage?

An automobile accident can damage far more than your car. Medical bills, lost income, and other expenses add up quickly and cause significant financial hardship. Personal injury protection, also known as PIP insurance, helps reimburse you for such costs, and can help protect your friends and family after a covered accident.

What is Comprehensive Insurance Coverage?

Comprehensive coverage is a catch-all for incidents that aren’t considered “accidents” like hail, flooding, or vandalism damage. Comprehensive coverage may help protect your car against damages that are not related to a collision, including:

What Is collision insurance coverage, and why do you need it?

If your car is damaged or destroyed in an accident, collision insurance coverage will typically pay to fix or replace it. Types of covered accidents include hitting another car or hitting a stationary object, like a bridge or a tree. Collision insurance can also help if someone or something else hits your car while it's parked.

What is Under-Insured/Uninsured Motorist Coverage, and why do you need it?

Uninsured Motorist insurance (UM) is coverage that protects you if you're involved in a collision with a driver who does not have liability insurance, or does not have enough liability insurance to pay for your damages.

Underinsured Motorist insurance (UIM) pays for injuries, such as medical expenses, that result from an accident caused by a driver who has too little insurance to cover all of the injuries.

Covered UM and UIM expenses for you and your passengers include:

What is bodily injury liability insurance coverage, and why do you need it?

Liability car insurance covers damages to another person resulting from an accident you cause. One of the most basic types of auto insurance coverage, liability is also one of the few coverage options that's required in every state—though minimum limits of coverage vary, depending on where you live.

Traditional insurance policies are wrong for low-mileage drivers

There’s a lot to take into consideration when choosing car insurance. It’s important to ensure you are getting the right insurance coverage for your car and your lifestyle, at a good price. But if you are a low-mileage or urban driver, traditional insurance policies are not for you.

Urban drivers are smart drivers – and deserve to own a vehicle under their own terms

There has been a huge rise in the number of urban drivers – those who typically use mass transit, carpool, telecommute, or otherwise get around town in ways other than a personal vehicle. But these drivers still need their cars on occasion, and until now, were forced to buy the same auto insurance policies that higher-mileage drivers purchase.

MOTORCYCLE LANE-SPLITTING LEGALIZED IN CALIFORNIA

Assembly Bill 51, signed into law by Gov. Jerry Brown late Friday, legally defines lane-splitting for the first time, the practice of motorcyclists riding between lanes to move quickly through traffic.
