Shop Around Whenever Renewal Is Due To Find The Cheap Auto Insurance You Need

The recession came out of nowhere in 2008 and left many households struggling to pay all the bills. Unfortunately, every state in the union has laws requiring drivers to carry a minimum amount of auto insurance or to demonstrate a minimum cash holding out of which to meet any claims.

To stay legal on the road, that means most vehicle owners are looking for affordable insurance. Yet that needs a word of explanation. There’s a problem with some of the insurers that sell cheap auto insurance. They are very good at collecting in the money, but they develop a resistance to parting with any of it when you claim.

So when you’re looking for the policy that’s right for you, the first step is to shop around. That’s where this site comes into play. This provides quotes from all the top insurers in your state. Now you have to do some work.

Most of the Insurance Commissioners not only run a formal complaints service, but also publish the results. The best Commissioners name and shame the insurers who have the most complaints upheld against them. The rule is never to buy a policy from an insurer who shows unwillingness to deal fairly with claims. Now read through the small print of the policy. You want terms of coverage including all the standard situations in which your vehicle might be damaged or you may be injured.

Once you have found the sweet spot of affordable auto insurance, you can buy with confidence for the immediate year. Next year, remember another insurer may be offering better auto insurance cover at a lower price. That’s one of the benefits of a capitalist society. Always shop around whenever renewal is due to find the cheap insurance you need.

Liability, Comprehensive and Collision Auto Insurance – A Basic Breakdown

States have made it mandatory for all automobile drivers and owners to have at least the minimum of liability coverage. The limit, however, varies from each state. The two required by states are Bodily Injury (BI) and Property Damage (PD).

However, BI and PD offer limited risk coverage, i.e. BI pays only for damages to other people as a result of an accident due to fault by the insured or any other covered driver. Similarly, Property Damage (PD) pays only for damages to other people’s property caused by the covered person.

On the other hand, at times, when one is held personally liable for damages over and above BI and PD limits, one needs to pay the remainder out of their own pocket. In such cases, with increasing costs of health and medical treatment and costs towards vehicle repair make the situation worse. Therefore, consumer advisory groups usually advise that one should analyze risks and accordingly purchase additional options and should not necessarily rely on basic liability simply for the sake of fulfilling a legal requirement. In addition to the minimal requirements, when obtaining auto insurance quotes, there are two such additional options which should be taken into consideration; collision and comprehensive.

Collision Policy:

In the case of physical damage, this protection covers the lower amount between the cost of repair of the automobile and its fair market value. This compensates the insured in the event that damages are caused by hitting another vehicle or object or the upset of the covered vehicle. It is normally sold along with a deductible, which is the amount that one is responsible for paying in the event that a claim is made. The larger the deductible the lower the premium becomes.

Comprehensive Policies:

Losses caused by the following are covered under “comp” policies:

- Missiles or falling objects
- Fire
- Theft
- Explosion or earthquake
- Windstorm and sandstorm
- Hail
- Flood
- Malicious mischief or vandalism
- Riot or civil commotion
- Contact with a bird or animal
- Breakage of glass.

Comprehensive and collision are also known as a “full coverage” policy when combined with liability. Motorists should evaluate their needs for protection before deciding which type of policy to purchase. The absolute must is to fulfill state law requirements before operating a vehicle. Whereas higher limits of liability will benefit most, a full coverage policy may not. If an older vehicle is being insured, it may not be worth the amount of the premium and/or deductible if it were to become damaged. On the other hand, a higher end automobile or one that is being financed should definitely carry these additional options. The repairs for expensive vehicles can become very costly. Since everyone’s situation is unique, they should take the time to determine what is needed to avoid financial hardships that may come along with a traffic accident.

Regardless of the amount of coverage that one intends to purchase, completing a comparison of rates and insurers is imperative. By obtaining multiple prices from various providers consumers not only have a better chance of finding the cheapest car insurance quote but also a reliable company.

Auto Insurance Collision Coverage pays for damage to your vehicle, bu not damage to things you hit. And it never pays for deer, regardless of which of you is…

Personal Injury Law

Any time a person is injured, that person experiences a personal injury. The law is designed to protect an individual from being harmed by other people or organizations. If a person experiences harm as a result of the actions of another person or organization, that person can file a personal injury claim. The claim will involve an attempt to demonstrate that either through negligence or as a result of willful or inadvertent actions, the person or organization caused the personal injury experienced by the aggrieved party.

The personal injury can happen by any of the following scenarios

1. A car accident: If someone runs a stop light or they hit you in another manner, this is grounds to seek the assistance of a personal injury lawyer. You did not ask to be hit by that individual. They were not paying attention to what they were doing, so it is only right that they make sure you are taken care of. However, you may have to take it to court in order to get the compensation you need for your pain and suffering, medical bills, and lost wages.

2. Animal bites: Animal attacks result in more than just bites and scratches. There is the fear of diseases, such as rabies. There is also the possibility of disability. This also results in lost wages and pain and suffering. Extensive surgeries may also be needed to repair the damages as much as possible.

3. Slips and falls: This is something that tends to happen on personal property. For example, the department store may not have properly blocked off a spill. An individual then steps in the wet area and they fall. Another example is a store that has left an obstacle in the aisle that was not seen. This can result in severe injury. Individuals can find themselves suffering from broken bones, severe sprains, tears, and even whiplash when this occurs.

4. Personal attacks: A personal attack is when an individual is attacked by another person. This could be a fight that renders a person disabled. If they have to have expensive medical attention, have lost wages, or are permanently disabled, this is grounds to see a personal injury lawyer.

5. Any injury on personal property: If you are on someone’s personal property and you become injured due to something that exists upon that property that the owner should have taken care of, see a personal injury lawyer. This could be anything from not taking care of ice on steps to falling through a weak floor and many more.

When you go to see your personal injury lawyer, you present them with evidence that shows that someone else was at fault. This includes any medical records, police reports, and anything else that you have to prove your case.

Once the personal injury lawyer evaluates the information, they are able to determine whether or not you have a case. If they do determine that you have a case, then they will take the next step in finding more information. From there, they will notify the proper entities of the lawsuit and file it in court.

From there, a court date will be scheduled and it will be time to prove your case so that you can receive the compensation that you need. This compensation is used to replace any monetary losses you have experienced because of the injury.

Directors Liability Insurance

In the large majority of cases the responsibilities, duties and powers that a director or officer will have will be set out in the job description or terms of reference. This means that legally the director or officer can be held responsible for issues involving data protection, fraud, negligence, health and safety and the maintenance of properly kept accounts.

Directors Liability Insurance is a form of liability insurance that is payable to the these officers and directors, or to the company itself, to provide cover for damages or the cost of legal defence if a legal challenge is made against the director on any of the above grounds.

Directors Liability Insurance has come to be broadly associated with the idea of management liability insurance, which allows for the cover of both the corporations and the management structure’s liabilities.

If the director or officer is discovered to have acted outside of their brief or the terms of reference by accident or by negligence, this could result in a legal claim being made against that director or against the company as a whole. In this situation Directors Liability Insurance will cover the cost of this claim as well as any compensation payments and legal fees that are incurred by the director, officer or company. The cover supplied by Directors Liability Insurance will not cover any of the aforementioned legal costs if the actions of the directors that are the subject of the legal challenge are found to have been deliberate.

So for example, if the director fails to inform their employees of health and safety regulations because they were always running late between meetings, this is negligence and will be covered by Directors Liability Insurance if an employee has an accident at work. If the director is found to have deliberately engaged in large scale fraud with the company’s money, this is a deliberate action and will not be covered by Directors Liability Insurance.

The main sources of Directors Liability Insurance claims come from shareholders, shareholder-derivative actions, customers, regulators and competitors (who may challenge the company on anti-trust of fair trading grounds).

 The exact level of coverage that a Directors Liability Insurance is very heavily affected by whether the company in question is publicly of privately traded, so it is important to perform adequate research.

Directors Liability Insurance is generally purchased by the company even if it will only be of any use to the directors or the officers. The companies do this for various reasons but the most common id so that the company can entice and then retain directors in the first place. It is also relatively common for directors and the company to split the cost if the countries legal system does not allow the company to purchase the insurance by itself.

Coplan & Crane Weighs In on Report Stating Tracy Morgan Was Not Wearing Seatbelt in Truck Accident

Chicago, IL (PRWEB) October 10, 2014

Commenting on a report alleging comedian Tracy Morgan was not wearing a seatbelt at the time of his accident, attorney Gregory F. Coplan today said the details in the news story illustrate the complicated nature of truck accident cases.

According to a Reuters report published in the Chicago Tribune,* Wal-Mart Stores Inc. stated in court filings** that Morgan and others, including a fellow passenger who was killed, were not wearing seatbelts when their vehicle was rear-ended by one of the company’s trucks. The lawyers for Wal-Mart state that the failure to wear seatbelts at least partly contributed to the injuries, according to the article.

“It’s not unusual for questions about seatbelt use to arise during such proceedings,” said Coplan, a personal injury lawyer in Chicago with more than 20 years’ experience. “This is one of the reasons why accidents involving serious injuries and fatalities can become complicated. Big corporations typically have teams of lawyers working to protect their interests. People who were injured or lost loved ones in these accidents can quickly become overwhelmed and feel powerless. That’s why it’s important for those injured and families who have lost loved ones to consult with an experienced attorney who can protect their rights.”

In a statement, Morgan said, “I can’t believe Wal-Mart is blaming me for an accident that they caused. My friends and I were doing nothing wrong,” according to the Chicago Tribune article.

“We’ve heard similar comments from our clients who have been seriously injured in accidents,” Coplan said.

The injuries to Morgan and others were caused in whole or in part by their failure to wear an appropriate restraint device, the Tribune article states, quoting Wal-Mart’s position. A day after the court documents were filed, Wal-Mart announced it was committed to working to resolve all the issues from the accident, the article states.

Attorney Coplan said companies accused of causing accidents will always look at the actions of the person who has filed a lawsuit to find out if there is any contributory negligence – that is, whether the person injured might be at fault.

“Most states have laws that allow judges and juries to determine responsibility for an accident in proportion to the fault of the involved parties,” Coplan said. “As attorneys who have represented the injured, we know that insurance companies will make all sorts of arguments about the behavior of the people who were injured or died in the crash. That’s why those who have been injured or lost loved ones need to have an experienced and aggressive attorney on their side, someone who knows how to build a compelling case and get results.”

According to the Tribune, Morgan’s accident occurred June 7 on the New Jersey Turnpike after a Wal-Mart truck crashed into the back of a chauffeured limo bus carrying the comedian and others. Comedian James McNair died in the accident. Morgan spent weeks in a hospital recovering from his injuries.

Morgan’s lawsuit alleges that the driver had been awake for more than 24 hours before the accident and should not have been behind the wheel. The driver has pleaded not guilty to charges of vehicular homicide and assault-by-auto, the Tribune states.


The Chicago Tribune article cited is “Tracy Morgan incredulous Wal-Mart blames him for accident injuries,” Sept. 30, 2014
** Case 3:14-cv-04388 (MAS) (LHG); United States District Court, District of New Jersey; Tracy Morgan, Ardley Fuqua, Jr., Jeffrey Millea and Krista Millea v. Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. and Wal-Mart Transportation, LLC
