When you get a car whether it is brand new or secondhand, one of the things that you should prioritize is getting car insurance. Car insurance can be your lifeline to save you from a lot of expenses.
You never know when you might be involved in a car accident. Even the most experienced drivers get into accidents at times. They are called accidents for a reason–because they are events that we sometimes cannot avoid or although are avoidable, they are difficult to avoid. At least with car insurance, especially if your insurance policy has a wide coverage, you would not be burdened a lot in case that you get into an accident.
For example, you get into an accident through your fault, your insurance then if it has third party coverage will cover the damage that you caused to other people and other vehicles. And if it also covers damage to people who are in the vehicle, and you and/or your passengers get harmed, the insurance will cover the hospital bills. The same goes if you cause harm to other people, and to properties.
With car insurance, you know that you have the security. You would not resort to other means such as paying for damages which might be a lot more costly. With car insurance, it is the insurance company that would pay for whatever damage it is. If your vehicle needs to be repaired or parts need to be replaced, they will be repaired and replaced.
Car insurance is a great investment. It may be an expense especially if the policy lapses and you did not get to use the insurance but that’s a lot better. At least there were no casualties. At least you are safe. That is a lot better than using your insurance for a grave accident.
