Having reliable and sufficient car insurance coverage is so important. But how do you know if you have enough? Car accidents are incredibly expensive today! Here’s how I found that out the hard way.
Several years ago, I did something stupid. Instead of backing straight out of my parking stall, I turned too soon. As a result, I crunched the side of my car Rhino into a pillar. I wasn’t inebriated, tired, or high. I was just in a rush to meet a friend.
The last time I had an accident was in 1998. Instead of backing up into a pillar, I backed into the passenger side door of another car which was also backing out at the same time. It looks like there’s a pattern to my accidents. But who told that Mustang to run into my bumper?!
I remember trading insurance information, paying a $200 deductible, and sending in a sketch of what happened. My insurance company probably paid, but I don’t remember for sure. My premium stayed the same and the cost didn’t stand out.
