How To Choose The Right Auto Insurance

Most drivers in Athens and Commerce, GA deal with some sort of stress about choosing the right auto insurance. The proper auto insurance is a combination of company, agent, and policy. The following are guidelines for the critical areas of these three major factors.


The state of Georgia requires that all drivers in Commerce, GA and throughout the state have a minimum coverage. The minimum bodily injury liability is $25,000 per person and $50,000 per incident. A minimum of $25,000 property damage liability is required. These limits are not negotiable and are set by the Georgia Department of Insurance.

There are additional types of auto insurance coverage that fit individual circumstances and automobiles. Liability does not cover all costs involved in an accident.

The additional coverage includes collision insurance that pays for damage to your car, comprehensive coverage that includes things like theft and natural disasters, medical insurance that covers medical bills that result from an automobile accident, and funeral insurance that covers the cost of a funeral that is made necessary by an accident.

Insurance that covers damage to your car from an uninsured driver is also available. You may need insurance that pays for a rental car while your car is being repaired.
