Car insurance is something we hope we never have to use but are very thankful for in the event of an accident. Even if you are the most cautious driver, you must be prepared in case a distracted driver rear ends your vehicle or if you are hit head on in a crash.

When evaluating your car insurance, it is important to have enough insurance coverage to cover medical bills for you and for your passengers if you cause a serious wreck or if the at-fault driver has minimum coverage.

Coverages to consider include Med Pay or Personal Injury Protection. These two types of coverage are helpful in paying for medical expenses while your case is ongoing whether you were at fault in the accident or not.

It is also important to have Underinsured Motorist Coverage as well as Uninsured Motorist Coverage. This protects you in the event the at-fault driver does not have any insurance or if they do not have enough insurance to cover your expenses due to the wreck.
