Here are the different types of auto insurance and what they cover:
Liability coverage is the most basic type of coverage and is required in South Carolina. It covers damages to other people and property if you are at fault in an accident. There are two types of liability coverage: bodily injury and property damage. Bodily injury coverage covers medical expenses and lost wages for the other driver and passengers if you are at fault. Property damage covers damage to the other driver’s vehicle or property.
Collision coverage protects you financially if your vehicle is damaged in an accident, regardless of who is to blame. If you have a loan or lease on your vehicle, you are required to have collision coverage. Did you know that vehicle repairs can exceed a threshold of its actual cash value? Let our experienced insurance advisors review your current policy to answer any questions you may have before a claim occurs.
Comprehensive coverage pays for damage to your vehicle that is not caused by accident, such as theft, fire, and flooding. It covers damage to your windshield too.
