Why do you need car insurance?

Car insurance helps pay medical bills, repairs, some legal defense costs, and more, if you’re involved in a covered accident.

  • 1.

    You cause an accident

    Sometimes, accidents happen. Liability coverage helps pay for the expenses related to injury, death, or damage to property of others if you’re at fault.

  • 2.

    You accidentally damage your own car

    Repair bills can add up fast. Collision coverage helps repair your vehicle if it is damaged in an accident.

  • 3.

    A weather event damages your car

    It’s not just collisions that can cause damage to your vehicle. Comprehensive coverage helps repair your car if it is involved in a non-collision incident, including hail damage, theft, or fire.

  • 4.

    A driver without insurance hits you

    Uninsured motorist coverage can help pay for your injuries and may help repair your vehicle when the other driver is at fault and either doesn’t have insurance or doesn’t have enough insurance.

Auto insurance coverages

Elephant’s licensed agents and online tools answer questions without the jargon.

Required car insurance coverages*

Liability insurance protects you financially if you cause an accident. Liability coverage helps pay an injured person's medical bills or for repairs to someone's vehicle. Drivers are legally required to carry liability insurance in most states.

*Other coverages may be required based on the requirements of the state in which you are insured.

Personalized car insurance coverages

Comprehensive and collision coverage Comprehensive coverage protects your car from unexpected events, such as damage caused by a falling tree or by hitting a deer, while collision coverage covers damage caused by a collision with another vehicle or object.

Uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage protects you if you are in an accident and another driver is at-fault but does not have car insurance. Underinsured motorist coverage bridges the gap if you’re in an accident and the at-fault driver’s liability limits are too low to cover the medical expenses of anyone injured.

How to compare car insurance coverages and quotes

If you are comparing car insurance prices from two or more companies, make sure you select the same coverages, policy limits and deductibles for each one. Here’s what to look for in each.

Coverages: Some coverages are mandatory, like liability insurance, and some are optional. Be sure to include the same coverages on each quote.

Policy limits: Certain coverages will have minimum and maximum limits, use our coverage calculator to select the limit that provides you with the protection you need. Check that each quote uses the same policy limits.

Deductible amounts: This is the amount you agree to pay if your vehicle needs repair. Think about how much you can pay. Increasing the deductible will lower your insurance premium. Be sure to select the same deductible on each quote.

Making sure you are making an “apples-to-apples” comparison on your quotes will help you decide which car insurance company is best for you.
