The Problem with Your Auto Insurance Policy

By John Purroy Jackson | September 10, 2019

And the problem isn’t that your Auto Insurance is too expensive. If you have a car, you have auto insurance.  It’s the law.  But, odds are you are completely unaware about a big problem with your auto insurance.

Commercial Auto: Two Shocking Statistics

By John Purroy Jackson | January 11, 2019

Commercial Auto: More than billboards on wheels. The cars and trucks that make up your businesses are more than just mobile advertisements.  Whether they haul your tools, tow your tractor, get your employees from Point A to Point B, or glide you around in style from appointment to appointment, these wheeled offices are physical manifestations of your business.  And yet, for most business owners, commercial auto insurance is an afterthought, something they think of after they decide what brand of coffee to order for the office (I’m partial to Counter Culture and Black Light myself).

Auto Liability: Why You Don’t Have Enough of It

By John Purroy Jackson | February 5, 2018

If you have a car, you have auto liability coverage.  But do you have enough? For a lot of people, auto insurance is not something that protects you, but instead is just another hoop to jump through in order to drive legally.  Insurance offices around the country receive calls every day from people who want whatever the lowest amount of coverage is in that state to satisfy the legal limits of liability.  When we ask what kind of coverage they are looking for, the answer we get is, “Whatever is the cheapest.” Unfortunately, this view of auto liability insurance is…

By Darline Watts | July 20, 2017

Collision Vs. Comprehensive Coverage When you cause an accident, your first concern will probably be how you’ll pay for the other driver’s damage. If you have liability coverage, this will hopefully cover all of those costs. However, if liability is all you have, you could be left with no way to pay for your own damages. While most states only require you to be covered for injuries or damage you cause to another person, not many states have requirements in place for damages you incur. Insurance coverage for your car is considered optional and comes mainly in the forms of collision and comprehensive…
