Independent insurance agents can help you find the best car insurance policy by obtaining customized quotes from multiple insurance companies on your behalf. That way, you can be sure you are getting the coverage you need at a competitive price. 

Car insurance is a mixture of required and optional coverage. If you crash your car, here are a few of the things a solid Wyoming auto insurance can do to help...Fix Your Car - Not required. We officially call this "comprehensive & collision coverage" and though it is not required by the state, it may be required by your lender.

  • Fix Someone Else's Car – Required/Min. $20,000. We officially call this "property damage liability."
  • Pay Your Medical Bills – Optional. We officially call this "personal injury protection" or "PIP."
  • Pay Someone Else's Medical Bills – Required/Min. $25,000 per person; $50,000 per accident. We officially call this "bodily injury liability."
  • Pay For Uninsured Drivers – Optional. This is called uninsured motorist insurance but will cover you if you hit another driver without insurance.

In addition to the coverage mentioned above, you can also include other optional coverage in your car insurance policy such as:

  • Gap insurance
  • Rental car reimbursement insurance
  • Towing & roadside assistance insurance
  • Umbrella insurance

Wyoming is what is known as an “at-fault,” or “tort,” state. This means that the driver who caused the accident is responsible for covering the cost of damage and medical treatment.

Driving without insurance is illegal in Wyoming. If caught, you can face fines of $250 to $1,500, suspension of your driving privileges, and potentially even jail time. These tough penalties my explain why only 7.8% of all drivers in this state are driving uninsured vehicles. This is significantly lower than the national average rate of 13.0%.

If an uninsured driver causes a collision with your vehicle, that person is responsible for covering your damage and medical bills. However, without the funds to back them up, many will be unable to pay. You may need to go through legal channels and lawsuits just to collect a fraction of what is owed to you.

That is why having uninsured motorist insurance can prove so beneficial. This insurance can provide you with timely coverage for your injuries and damage if you are in a collision caused by an uninsured, underinsured, or hit-and-run driver. Your insurance company will then take on the difficult task of trying to collect funds owed by the at-fault driver, and will absorb the losses if unsuccessful.

Talk to a local independent insurance agent to learn more about this optional insurance and how it can protect you from undue financial losses.

When it comes to car insurance, there is no insurance company that can be considered “best” for everyone. The company that offers you the most affordable rate for coverage might not be the right choice for your neighbor or your best friend.

That is why independent agents compare policies and rates from a variety of top rated insurance companies. That way, they can find the policy that offers the coverage you want at the best value for you.
