Why is car insurance necessary?

Why do I need auto insurance? I already have medical insurance for if I get hurt.

Answer
Drivers are required to carry car insurance in most states by law.
If you drive without insurance and cause an accident, you could be sued for damages and have your assets seized.
It’s important to have the correct coverage if you have a loan on your car. If you don’t have full coverage on your car and you total it, you’ll have to pay a loan for a vehicle that you don’t have and can’t drive.
You might be hesitant to add coverage that could protect you because it seems expensive, but there are ways to save. Jerry is a free app that compares car insurance quotes to find you the right coverage for the lowest price, saving you time and money.
