What Does Car Insurance Cover?
If your vehicle is damaged in a car crash, auto insurance can help pay for your repairs. The General insurance partners with auto repair shops all over the nation to help you get your car back on the road as fast as possible. Your policy may even cover a rental car until your repairs are done. In most cases, all you have to pay is a small deductible. And if your car is damaged beyond repair, car insurance from The General may help you buy a new vehicle.
The last thing you want is expensive medical bills on top of car repair costs. If you’re ever injured in a car accident, The General may help pay for your short- or long-term health care, giving you more peace of mind on today’s dangerous roadways.
If multiple people drive your car, or if you have friends or family riding with you, you need extra protection. Your insurance policy from The General may help provide for your passengers’ health care needs, too. An car insurance policy from The General also helps protect you if you’re in a car accident that involves other drivers who don’t have insurance.
