The average Wichita car owner doesn’t have a vast knowledge of car insurance. Most people just expect that if they have insurance, they will be taken care of if they have an accident on Kellogg. Unfortunately, insurance companies look for any way to not pay you. There’s a variety of reasons that the insurance could deny your claim and leave you footing the bill for medical and repair bills, even if the accident wasn’t your fault. To prevent this from happening, read how you can improve your insurance coverage.
Uninsured or Underinsured Coverage
Uninsured motorist coverage comes into play whenever anyone insured on your policy is injured by an uninsured motorist. This includes hit-and-run accidents. Underinsured motorist coverage applies only when the other motorist’s coverage is lower than your own. This insurance covers a wide multitude of losses, financial and non-financial. And with nearly 14% of U.S. drivers not having car insurance, there’s a pretty good chance it could happen to you.
Medical Expense Benefit
Although this is required by law, you can still increase your coverage. Medical expense benefit pays for any medical treatment you need for injuries suffered in a car accident. If you have medical bills that aren’t covered by your policy, you have to pay out of pocket, which can add up fast.
There are many other types of coverage to add to your policy such as additional income loss coverage, and property damage coverage to protect your family even better in the event of an accident.
