Protect Yourself from Financial Fallout After a Road Accident!

So, you just brought home your dream car — shiny, new, and ready to amaze you with its power and features as you hit the open road. Before you head out for your first joy ride, however, there’s something critical you should consider: collision auto insurance. All those wheel-spinning fantasies of feel-good freedom will come to a harsh halt if you’re not adequately covered against accident or injury.

Having collision coverage is essential in protecting yourself from any financial fallout resulting from a costly road accident. To let you have a deeper appreciation of this type of insurance, we at Veteran Car Donations are here to walk you through the basics of collision auto insurance.


What Is Collision Auto Insurance?

Collision auto insurance is one of the main types of auto insurance policies. It helps pay for the repairs or replacement of your vehicle in the event of an accident. It can cover your repair expenses whether you get in an accident with another car or your car hits a tree during a snowstorm. If you don’t have the coverage, you’d be left with no choice but to pay out-of-pocket.

Although collision car insurance is optional, it’s strongly advisable to buy one just in case you get involved in a head-on crash. If you’re leasing or financing your vehicle, your lender will most likely require it.


What Accidents ARE COVERED by Collision Auto Insurance?

Collision coverage helps pay for damages that are caused by accidents involving:

  • A collision with another car
  • A collision with an object like a fence, tree, pole, etc.
  • A rollover accident
  • Someone crashing into your parked car
  • An accident in a vehicle you’re renting


What Incidents Are NOT COVERED by Collision Auto Insurance?

Don’t expect to get reimbursed by your collision coverage if you encounter any of these incidents:

  • Natural disasters such as typhoons, earthquakes, etc.
  • Theft or vandalism
  • Damage to another person, including medical expenses
  • Contact with animals
  • Losses aside from auto damage from a collision


Why Buy Collision Auto Insurance?

The answer’s pretty simple: Collision coverage can help protect your finances in the event of a vehicular accident. It will no doubt give you some peace of mind since you no longer have to worry about where to get the money for the repair of your car or the replacement of its damaged parts after a wreck.

What’s more, not having collision insurance may prevent you from paying off the balance of your loan or lease if it’s declared a total loss following a crash. You’d find yourself spending a huge chunk of money that could leave an enormous hole in your pocket.

Finally, collision auto insurance ensures that any damages or injuries to other drivers or pedestrians involved in the accident are covered.

Even if you consider yourself a safe driver, accidents can still happen. Collision auto insurance gives you peace of mind that both your car and wallet will be protected when an unforeseen collision takes place.
