If I’d like additional protection, what auto coverages are available?

  • Collision Coverage – You may add Collision Coverage to pay the cost of repairing or replacing your vehicle in the event of an auto accident, minus the amount of your deductible. Collision Coverage protects against your vehicle’s collision with another vehicle or an object, like a guardrail or a tree.

  • Collision and Other Than Collision Coverages are important for owners of:
    • Vehicles that are being leased or financed
    • Newer vehicles that would be expensive to replace
  • Uninsured Motorist Coverage – Uninsured Motorist Coverage protects you and others if injured in an accident with an at-fault driver who doesn’t carry liability insurance.
  • Underinsured Motorist Coverage – Underinsured Motorist Coverage protects you and others when injured in an accident with an at-fault driver whose liability limits are too low to cover the damages.
