Milwaukee Auto Insurance That Fits Your Lifestyle
If you're like most drivers, you probably spend more time in your car than anywhere else except at your home or work. With all of that driving time, accidents can come out of nowhere. In Wisconsin, you're required by law to carry a minimum level of insurance, including:
- Coverage for Bodily Injury to Others: At least $25,000 per person / $50,000 per accident.
- Coverage for Property Damage: At least $10,000 per accident.
- Uninsured Motorist Coverage: At least $25,000 per person / $50,000 per accident for bodily injuries.
Many times, however, the bare minimum just isn't enough. After all, the legal minimum won't necessarily cover all the damage an accident can cause, including damage to your car, and it won't necessarily pay all your medical bills. Moreover, it won't cover expenses you might not have even considered, such as car rental fees while your vehicle is being repaired. That's why you should consider additional protection.
Liability Coverage: This insures you for damages to the other party in an accident that is found to be your fault. While Wisconsin law requires minimum liability coverage, these limits can be easily exceeded, especially in a severe accident, or an accident involving more than two cars. It’s a good idea to look at higher limits to avoid finding that your policy limit has been exceeded and you are personally liable for high property-damage or medical bills.
Collision Coverage: This type of coverage pays for the repairs to your car after an accident. Collision coverage is a prudent choice to get your car back on the road without having to pay high repair bills yourself. When considering collision coverage, the election of a deductible, or how much you have to pay before your insurance begins to pay, is an important consideration because even small changes in the deductible can affect the collision coverage premium.
Medical Payments: Although not legally required in Wisconsin, this is a wise coverage-option for most drivers. Sometimes called “no-fault” insurance, Med Pay covers your medical expenses (or the expenses of anyone in your vehicle), regardless of who is at fault in an accident. Med Pay helps ensure that you receive the money you need quickly, without waiting for a determination of fault.
Comprehensive Coverage: This coverage will pay for damage to your car caused by something unrelated to a collision. For example, if a storm causes a tree to fall on your car or your car is vandalized, comprehensive coverage could pay for the damage. Simply put, comprehensive coverage provides extra protection for your car, and extra peace of mind for you.
Uninsured or Underinsured Motorist Coverage: Although Wisconsin car owners are legally required to carry auto insurance, unfortunately some don’t. Uninsured/Underinsured motorist coverage helps protect you when you are injured due to the fault of a driver without any insurance at all, or one who is carrying too little insurance. While state law requires that you carry uninsured motorist coverage, you may wish to consider increasing the limit so that you aren’t responsible for high medical bills after a severe accident with an uninsured driver.
While those are just the basic types of coverage, you can also elect from a wide range of other Milwaukee auto insurance coverage options, including gap coverage, which pays the difference between what your car is worth and what you still owe on the vehicle. In addition, there are just as many ways to save on your Milwaukee car insurance premiums, including safe-driver discounts, good-student discounts, and more.
One of the best ways to save on your Milwaukee auto insurance premiums is through an auto-home insurance package. Covering your cars and home with one carrier helps save with the premiums on each of your policies, as well as giving you the convenience of dealing with a single company.
