In North Carolina, basic auto liability coverage is mandatory. Drivers are required to carry a minimum of $30,000 in bodily injury insurance per person with a total of $60,000 for everyone involved in an accident and an additional $25,000 for damage to property. While this coverage is adequate if you don’t have a lot of assets, it may be woefully inadequate if you are involved in a major collision. In Matthews, NC the knowledgeable staff at Jim Boyce Insurance can answer any questions that you may have about what coverage is best for you.
If you own a home or have assets, you may want to have a higher level of liability insurance to protect your current and future assets.
If you have an auto loan or lease, collision insurance may be required by the lender or lessor. If you would have trouble repairing or replacing your auto on your own, collision coverage is something that you should consider. It will pay for repairs or replacement if your vehicle is damaged in an accident where you are at fault.
Comprehensive insurance is often referred to as non-collision coverage. Lots of things that can damage or totally destroy your car can happen without another vehicle being involved. Deer have a nasty habit of jumping into the road in front of cars. This can result in catastrophic damage. Glass coverage is one of the most used parts of comprehensive insurance, a wayward stone can cause a chip or a crack that can impair your ability to drive. These may not sound that terrifying but if you have to pay for the repair out of pocket because you don’t have insurance coverage, it can result in a financial crisis.
