The first concern that many drivers have when purchasing auto insurance is typically in regards to liability. Naturally, people want protection and coverage should they cause injury or property damage to another party. Obviously, prioritizing this type of coverage, especially if you don’t own your vehicle, is warranted. However, ensuring that your own vehicle is covered should not be neglected either.
