If you drive in Norwalk, you're required by law to carry liability insurance. Two types of coverage are offered in the form of bodily injury liability insurance and property damage liability insurance. Minimum requirements for liability insurance in the state of California are 15/30/15. In other words, you're required to obtain $15,000 in bodily injury coverage per person or $30,000 total per accident with a minimum limit of $15,000 for property damage liability insurance. Therefore, when obtaining Norwalk car insurance quotes, it's essential you include liability coverage.
If you drive a newer model vehicle, and own it or lease it, you should obtain full coverage, which includes adding collision and comprehensive insurance to your liability coverage. Collision insurance will cover any damages your car receives if you're involved in an auto accident while comprehensive insurance will protect you by paying for any damages resulting from fire, theft, vandalism, hail or other weather-related causes. Depending on your financial situation, you can also benefit by choosing uninsured motorist and underinsured motorist coverage to include in any Norwalk auto insurance quotes you attain. Both coverages serve to protect you by paying any medical expenses or vehicle costs if you're involved in an accident with an uninsured or underinsured driver. Of course, the coverage and cost you'll pay will hinge primarily on the make and model of your car, the number of miles you drive in a year as well as your age and gender. When consulting any Norwalk car insurance company for a quote then, make certain you are obtaining the necessary coverage.
Additional coverages, such as personal injury protection insurance can also be helpful. Personal injury protection pays your medical costs and the medical expenses of any passengers riding in your car at the time of an accident. Coverage also extends to paying the medical costs of pedestrians you may hit. If you can afford to pay a little more, it's a good coverage to add when obtaining any Norwalk car insurance quotes. Naturally, if you drive an older model car, you don't really need total coverage or collision or comprehensive insurance as the protection only provides compensation up to the book value of a car once deductibles are met. Therefore, it's usually best to pass up the extra coverage if you own an older model car to reduce your premium. Put the additional money into the bank for future repairs.
