Around one in eight drivers foregoes protecting themselves and their vehicle with a car insurance policy. That’s an incredible number of drivers—and if you’re one of them, you could face financial ruin if you’re involved in an accident. Car insurance has more benefits than just fixing your car. Here’s a quick rundown on why you need car insurance from us here at Sunny King Honda!
- Money – When it comes to keeping yourself financially protected, car insurance is a must-have. Not only will car insurance cover your vehicle, it could save you from losing everything. The average cost of a single car accident in 2013 was $9,300, according to the National Safety Council. That’s roughly the cost of half a compact car. That number doesn’t include medical bills, either.
- Health – In accidents that caused a serious injury, the average cost of a car accident sky rocketed to $80,700, according to the National Safety Council. That’s nearly three figures and the majority of people don’t have that kind of cash on hand. In a pinch, car insurance could supplement your health insurance as well.
- Law – In most states, having car insurance is the law. Not only will having car insurance protect you from uninsured drivers, but it will keep you from paying costly fees and potentially losing your license.
