car insurance claimCathy Isom continues her series on car insurance telling us to know our coverage when it comes to auto insurance. When shopping around for the best auto insurance, one thing to consider is that every state has a minimum coverage required by law. What you find, if you are in any kind of serious car accident or semi serious car accident a lot of times the costs can be way higher than that. If you just have the minimum coverage for your state what you’ll find is that the insurance will cover that much and then you’ll have to foot the bill for the rest. Your out of pocket cost could be upwards of hundreds of thousands of dollars. What experts recommend for car insurance is that you buy a lot higher than the state minimum.
