Accidents can happen in the blink of an eye. If you are involved in a crash, here are a few of the ways that your Connecticut auto insurance may be able to help.
Connecticut is what is referred to as an at-fault (or “tort”) state.
This means that the driver who causes the accident is responsible for covering any resulting damage and medical costs.
Driving without insurance is illegal in Connecticut. If caught, you will be charged with a Class C misdemeanor and can face penalties of:
Despite these penalties, nearly one in ten drivers who are sharing the roadways with you in this state is driving without insurance.
This is why uninsured/underinsured motorist insurance, which is required in Connecticut, is so important. Without this coverage, if an uninsured driver caused you injuries in a collision, it could be extremely difficult, if not impossible, to collect the funds necessary to pay for your medical treatment.
Uninsured motorist insurance ensures that you will have the coverage necessary when you need it. Your insurance company will then take on the difficult task of trying to collect the funds owed by the at-fault driver, and will absorb the costs if unsuccessful.
There is no single insurance company that is the best choice for every driver. The company that may offer the most value to you is not necessarily the same company that is ideal for your best friend or your next-door neighbor.
Independent agents understand this. That is why they compare policies and rates from a variety of highly rated insurance companies in order to find you the policy that is best suited to your coverage and budgetary needs.
