Watch the video, “What is Collision Coverage?” to see how this important coverage could be beneficial for you!
A Trip to the Grocery Store
This is Joe and his car. Joe stopped off at the grocery store to pick up some late night snacks. As Joe backed out of the parking space he must’ve gotten distracted by the great song on the radio because a light post sprung up out of nowhere and ran right into his taillight, scraping about two feet up on the driver rear side.
Joe Has Collision Coverage
Luckily, Joe has Collision Coverage with Direct Auto Insurance. Collision Coverage helps to pay for damage to your vehicle when you run into or are hit by something or someone, or if your car overturns. It could be from an inanimate object like a light post or another vehicle.
Who Needs Collision Coverage
You may be required to carry Collision Coverage if your car is financed or leased. If your car is less than 10 years old, you may want to consider if it’s right for you to include Collision Coverage on your policy.
