Ask Me About:

What happens if the other driver isn't insured?

Most states (except Virginia, New Hampshire, and Mississippi) require vehicle owners to have a minimum level of automobile liability insurance. Yet, irresponsible drivers manage to skirt the law. For example, some drivers buy insurance only long enough to have the proof of insurance needed to get their vehicle registered, and then cancel the policy. Furthermore, it is generally known that when the economy worsens, the number of people who cheat and drive without liability insurance increases. Currently - it is estimated that one of every eight drivers is uninsured! That’s nearly 13% of all drivers!

So, the odds are frighteningly high that if you are in a collision, it will be with someone who does not have insurance.

So what happens if the other driver in an accident isn't insured? Typically, the insurance of the at-fault driver is supposed to cover the damages. But if the other driver is at fault, but doesn't have insurance, chances are he or she also doesn't have a lot of assets. A lawyer can help, but you may not be able to recover damages even if you win a lawsuit.

The only way to protect yourself from having to bear all the costs if you're hit by an uninsured motorist is to add uninsured or under-insured motorist coverage to your policy. It may not seem fair, but there are simply too many uninsured or underinsured drivers out there. You can save yourself unwanted anxiety and large payments out-of-pocket by adding or increasing your uninsured or under-insured coverage.

How are your coverage levels now?
How are your coverage levels now? Let’s take a look and make sure you are protected against nearly 13% of those drivers out there who are uninsured or underinsured
Technology is everywhere, and its application seems to be ever-expanding. The auto insurance world is already providing personalized discounts to drivers who voluntarily use driving tracking gadgets – is the home insurance world far behind? Will there soon by discounts for homeowners with internet-connected safety systems?

From app-connected doorbells to smart smoke detectors and remote lighting and temperature control (even WiFi-enabled fridges that tell you when you’re low on eggs), homeowners are hooking up to WiFi. But, according to the Wall Street Journal, the technology that promises to prevent damage and loss doesn’t yet translate to a safer house in the eyes of insurance companies.

Yes, the insurance industry is hearing from customers who want discounts for the devices they’ve added to their home, but there isn’t yet meaningful data that proves the devices actually improve security, or prevent significant loss, or reduce the replacement costs of a home and the items within it. Despite the lack of significant data-based proof, individual homeowners like these connected security devices and claim they already feel safer.

But if/when these technology-based home security devices prove meaningful in improving home security and preventing damage or loss over time, the insurance industry may indeed respond by reducing rates. Some insurers are already offering small discounts for connected devices while they test their efficacy, but not in amounts that significantly reduce average premiums across the board. According to the WSJ the average premium in the U.S. for homes is predicted to increase 5.5% this year.

But unlike the auto-insurance industry, where drivers can get discounts of as much as 30% for agreeing to use technology that monitors their driving habits, experts say it could be several years before there’s enough data about smart-home devices to offer similar discounts in the home insurance world.

Technology certainly introduces exciting possibilities. It bears watching how the data stacks up to see if these connected devices and gadgets significantly reduce damage, loss and risk to the point that meaningful discounts would be offered to homeowners.

While there are a lot of things you need to be aware of when reading and understanding your home insurance policy, there are 5 key terms you need to know in order to make sure that your personal assets are protected and any potential liability is covered.
1. Replacement Cost
Whether due to burglary or a natural disaster, you want to make sure that your home and possessions are replaced.
2. Water Backup
Water backup is a vital feature in coverage, and if you encounter an issue with water accidents, you'll be glad that you made sure it's included in your home insurance policy. Normally, the coverage is for situations that are not covered on a standard home policy.
3. All-Risk Coverage
All-risk coverage doesn't list everything that is covered - instead, it lists everything that isn't included. It's not imperative to purchase an all-risk coverage plan, but it's always good to ask for and evaluate. While there are some exceptions to all-risk coverage (nuclear war, flood and ground contamination), it can increase your sense of protection.
4. HOAs
If you're in a home that relies on a master policy as your primary coverage, read it carefully and pay attention to the details. You want to make sure that there are no special items, deductibles or gaps in the coverage between your personal and your master policy. You can easily get more clarity on this information by talking to your insurance agent or an HOA representative. It could come in handy to record these conversations (with their permission) so that you always have the information on hand when you need it.
5. Valuable items
It's not uncommon for valuable items like jewelry, guns, furs, precious metals, etc., to only be insured up to $2,500. If your possessions are worth more than $2,500 each, you will need a professional appraisal of the item in question and a photo of it to add to your home policy.

More than 40% of Americans have no life insurance, according to a 2015 study by trade group LIMR. Another 19% only have group life insurance (coverage available through work) which is rarely enough to cover a family’s long-term needs. Here are some reasons to consider life insurance when you’re a married couple and some options for policies:

1. You’re adding expenses
Couples often use their combined incomes to take on bigger financial obligations, such as renting a nicer apartment, buying a home or new cars and/or having children. Many couples wouldn’t be able to bear these costs on just one income. One of biggest reasons for buying life insurance is the income replacement it provides, which allows your family to continue with their plans and lifestyle.

2. Your spouse may inherit your debts
Any debts still owed when you die would have to be paid out of your remaining assets. This will reduce the amount of what you pass on to your spouse. In community property states (Arizona, California, Idaho, Louisiana, Nevada, New Mexico, Texas, Washington and Wisconsin), your spouse would be responsible for debts you took on after getting married, such as personal credit card balances. Do you want to leave them on the hook for that?

3. Life insurance cost more the longer you wait
The sooner you buy a policy and lock in your life insurance rates, the more money you’ll save over the long run, because prices go up with every year you get older. Buy it while you’re young and healthy – if you later develop a medical condition you could pay much higher rates, if you even qualify at all.

Once you’ve decided to add life insurance, the question becomes what kind of coverage to buy and how much you need. Your decision generally depends on what financial obligations you want to cover, how long those obligations last and how much protection you can afford.
What other questions might you have about life insurance? We’ll be happy to help you understand your options.

For most of us, our home is the greatest financial investment we will ever make, and we certainly need to protect it against the many threats that can come from Mother Nature and other people.
Standard homeowners’ policies provide protection against a wide range of threats, but keep in mind that protection can vary from carrier to carrier and from policy to policy. It is important to check your policy for details, but most homeowners’ policies provide protection against these 10 threats*:
1. Fire (including from a lightning strike)
2. Windstorm
3. Explosion
4. Riot or civil commotion
5. Damage caused by aircraft
6. Damage caused by vehicles
7. Smoke
8. Vandalism or malicious mischief
9. Theft
10. Volcanic eruption
*This list is for reference only. It is important to check your insurance policy for specific coverages.
Ask your agent to direct you to the appropriate insurer if you are looking for any other type of insurance for your home, for example:
• Flood insurance
• Earthquake insurance
• Landslide / Mudslide insurance
• Sewer back up insurance
Additionally, there may be special deductibles in your state that come into play for damage caused by hail, hurricane, tropical storm or tornado.
To protect your home and your investments, talk with your agent to determine what coverages are most appropriate for your situation.
Why? Because most insurance companies want to attract a particular type of person - usually homeowners who need to insure their cars, homes, and lives (among other things). These “multiline discounts” are meant to attract customers who need more than one type of insurance, and the bundled rates are meant to incentivize consumers to stay with one insurance company for years, instead of shopping for a better deal every six months.

While the discounts range based on coverage levels, deductible limits, and other factors, you could save anywhere between 3% and 35% per year with bundled policies, compared to buying those policies separately. The best discounts come when you combine three or more lines of insurance with the same company. Additionally, when you bundle coverage, some carriers offer a single deductible, instead of several different deductibles.

There is the factor of convenience to consider, too. If you have trouble keeping track of multiple bills, bundling policies can result in a single bill each month. Bundling policies simplify policy management, reduces paperwork, and makes it easier if you only have to contact one company when you need to make a claim.
