Optional Coverage in Georgia
Although Georgia has its minimum Auto Insurance requirements in place, that minimum may not be enough. To better protect you and your family, consider a plan with higher PD or BI protections. Also keep in mind that there are additional coverage options that can help protect you from the unexpected.
Below are some examples of optional coverages you may want to consider:
- Collision Coverage*: If you were in an accident involving other vehicles, this coverage pays for the cost to repair your car once you pay your deductible. Keep in mind that the national average repair costs after a collision is close to $3,000. For those without Collision coverage, the out of pocket costs could be devastating.
- Comprehensive Coverage*: Accidents don’t always involve other vehicles. Comprehensive coverage covers your car for damages caused by something other than a car collision (natural disasters, hail dents, fire, etc.) once you pay your deductible.
- Uninsured Motorist Coverage: Although driving without insurance could automatically cost the driver his/her license and registration for six months (and potentially fees and jail time to boot), many Georgia residents still choose to drive without Car Insurance. If you are involved in a collision with an uninsured motorist who is at fault, you may have to foot the bill for your own damages. With Uninsured Motorist Coverage, you will be protected from incidents like this, and your insurance will cover the expenses up to your purchased policy limits.
- Higher Bodily Injury Limits: Injuries after an accident can be extensive, and if you are at fault for an accident with injuries, the minimum coverage may not be nearly enough. AIS highly recommends that you consider additional BI coverage, which may protect you from potentially devastating expenses.
- Higher Property Damage Limits: It is quite possible that the minimum PD requirement may not be enough to cover property damages. After car repairs, property damages (fences, buildings, light poles, etc.), and other such expenses could cause that minimum compensation to quickly run out. Any additional costs will be your own responsibility to cover.
*Although Collision coverage and Comprehensive coverage are not required by law, they may be required in your car loan or lease contract with the lender.
Although none of these types and levels of coverage are required by Georgia law, adding them to your policy could help you tremendously in the event of an accident. They might not even be as expensive to add as you think. If you need help determining your specific Auto Insurance coverage needs, call us at Auto Insurance Specialists.
