Liability – It happens.
  • Pays for the damage you cause to others if your car is involved in an accident.
  • Let us protect you from being wiped out financially if you are sued following an accident. 
Collision – It can be unexpected. 
  • Covers damage to your car from an accident.
  • Let us calculate the value of this based off your car’s worth and you can decide if Mustang Megan is worth the coverage. 
Comprehensive – It isn’t fun.
  • Coverage pays for your car if it is stolen, vandalized or damaged in some way other than in a collision. No car and no comprehensive coverage? Not a great combo.
  • Let us minimize the sticky situation. 
Medical – It’s needed.
  • Coverage provides for medical expenses to you and your passengers that are the result of an accident. 
  • Let us help you determine the amount of medical coverage you need based off your average amount of passengers.
