Comprehensive Car Insurance: The Best Or Just a Rip Off?

Dec

When it comes to protecting your car, you want the best car insurance that money can buy; or do you?  While having car insurance is generally legally required in most regions, motor insurance companies can make additional profits by offering more extensive insurance packages to their drivers.  These insurance packages may include various benefits apart from car accident repairs, such as roadside assistance or routine car maintenance.  This is obviously a direct contrast to very basic packages, such as with liability coverage, which will only cover the cost of a third party’s repairs should the insured driver get into a car accident.

Comprehensive car insurance is quite the opposite. This type of insurance can cover other motor related matters, such as repairs in the case of an “act of God.” If you have housing insurance, you may already know what an “act of God” is, but essentially it is a natural disaster that cannot otherwise be predicted.

Betancourt, 49, suffered a serious heart problem 11 years ago, and he credits the doctors at Henry Ford with saving his life.

“I went to the doctor thinking I had a bad cold and the specialists at Henry Ford told me I had what is called an aortic dissection – a tear in the major blood vessel that carries blood away from the heart to the body,” recalled Betancourt. “As a result, my aorta had grown to the size of a softball, and I needed immediate open-heart surgery.”
