“Paying for car insurance means that you don’t have to foot the bill after an accident. Essentially, you’re protecting yourself from financial loss and hardship.
Furthermore, car insurance isn’t just about protecting yourself—it’s about protecting other people as well.
Since you were at fault for the accident, your insurance paid for the other party’s property damage and medical expenses. Without car insurance, that money would come right out of your own pocket.
It can be frustrating when your premium goes up after making a claim, but there is a solution. If you want to save money on car insurance with a cheaper plan, the Jerry app is a good place to start.
A licensed broker, Jerry does all the hard work of finding the cheapest quotes from the top name-brand insurance companies and buying new car insurance. Jerry will even cancel your old policy for you. “
