Does car insurance cover broken windshields?
My windshield got pretty smashed by some falling debris. Everyone in the car was okay, and only my windshield was damaged. Will insurance pay for that?
Thanks for the question! In order to have your broken windshield covered, you would need to have comprehensive coverage on your insurance policy.
In some states you are able to obtain “full glass coverage,” meaning you would not need to pay a deductible for a glass loss. If you are not in one of those states, the loss would be subject to your comprehensive deductible.

Will a non owners policy be the right insurance for a car that I am borrowing?
I am from Connecticut and will be living in Alaska for just the summer this year. My aunt will let me borrow her truck so I have a vehicle to get around in. It is covered on her policy, but she wants me to get a non-owner policy so that I am insured. How do I get it and for what state?

Do I need umbrella coverage with my 100/300 car insurance?
"I recently raised my car insurance limits from the state minimums. My insurance company is offering me umbrella coverage for $20 more a month. Do I need it? I have $100,000/$300,000 limits for bodily injury. Is this too high for umbrella coverage?"
