Benefits of Auto Insurance

A major benefit of having car insurance is that it provides an economic safety net for people. In a society in which most people live paycheck to paycheck, there isn't much wiggle room for emergency situations that cost a lot of money. Unfortunately, auto accidents are the kind of emergency situations that can easily drain a bank account. Even in a minor one with no injuries, the cost of paying for another person's vehicle and your own can run into the thousands. For this reason, it's better to pay a monthly fee that is known and within your budget than to pay nothing and lose everything.
