“While it’s legal to drive as long as you meet the state minimum car insurance requirements, you may be putting your vehicle at risk by not having full coverage.
If you’re missing collision car insurance, you won’t have protection for your own vehicle in the case of an accident.
Comprehensive car insurance protects against damages caused by sources like:
- natural disaster
If you don’t want to risk paying out-of-pocket for your repairs or even replacing your vehicle, you may want to consider full coverage.”
