Common Auto Insurance Questions
What is auto insurance?
By purchasing the right coverage, auto insurance is a paid agreement between the insured and the insurer that, in the event of an accident, the insurer will step in and help cover some of, if not, all of the costs resulting from a damaged vehicle depending on the type of coverage. In turn, drivers can feel some type of safety knowing that, if an accident occurs, they will be provided financial assistance.
How does auto insurance work?
Vehicle damage can get very expensive if an accident is severe enough, and auto insurance is a guarantee that you will be assisted in covering those expenses. In the event of an accident, you would file a claim against your policy for aspects of the accident you are responsible for and your insurance will then give you financial assistance in covering some of the costs.
It’s important to understand that having quality coverage will limit your out-of-pocket costs, rather than digging yourself into significant financial debt.
How do auto insurance deductibles work?
Your auto insurance deductible is the amount of money you pay upfront before your auto insurance coverage kicks in when you make a claim.
For example, if you are in a collision with another vehicle and you are at fault, your auto collision insurance policy helps cover the cost of repairing or replacing your vehicle. You are responsible for paying your deductible, usually $500 or $1,000, before insurance pays the remainder of the bill.
What auto insurance is required by law?
In Maryland, you must carry minimum amounts of liability insurance, which helps pay for third-party injuries or property damage after an accident you cause while driving.
Your auto insurance coverage is validated by the Maryland Department of Transportation (MDOT) when you register a vehicle or renew your vehicle registration.
Comprehensive, collision and GAP insurance are optional. However, if you have a loan or lease on your car, your lienholder may require these coverages in addition to liability coverage.
What does auto insurance cover?
The average auto insurance policy can offer numerous benefits, including:
Comprehensive insurance: This coverage pays for damage from non-accident mishaps, such as weather damage, fires, theft, vandalism or similar accidents.
Medical payments coverage/Personal Injury Protection: If you get hurt in an accident, this coverage can pay for your medical bills. It sometimes will cover other losses, like lost income.
Uninsured/underinsured motorist insurance: This insures you against damage caused by someone else who doesn’t have appropriate liability coverage. If you are the victim of a hit-and-run, for example, then this coverage can pay for your car’s damage.
