Basic insurance is the minimum amount of coverage you can have legally to drive a vehicle in a given state. In Colorado, that is 25/50/15. Other states have other amounts. While this may be the perfect coverage for some people, it isn’t suitable for everyone. For those who live in or near Wheat Ridge, CO, CO Insurance Specialists has an experienced team who is happy to provide the information you may need to determine if basic coverage is right for you.
With basic insurance, other drivers are protected from you. If you are the responsible driver in an accident, you will pay for medical bills and damage to the other vehicle. But it doesn’t do anything for your car. You will be left to pay for any repairs yourself.
If you have an auto loan or are leasing a vehicle, you will need to have insurance to protect your vehicle, which the loan company or the lessor has an interest in.
But what about your vehicle if you don’t have a loan or lease? Do you count on your vehicle for your activities of daily life? Most people do. If you had an accident or were the victim of a hit and run, would you be able to pay for the repair? If your vehicle was stolen, would you have the money to replace it?
Collision coverage provides the money you need to repair or replace your vehicle if damaged in an accident. Comprehensive coverage covers you for vehicle theft and other things other than an accident that can damage or destroy your vehicle. It includes glass coverage as well. Most coverage will require that a deductible be paid.
