Collision Coverage

Direct Locations Near You

Looking for cheap Collision insurance in Jackson? Come to your nearest Direct Auto & Life Insurance. While Mississippi law does not require drivers to have Collision coverage, it can still be beneficial to have. Let's say your car hits another object, like a guardrail, tree, street light, or pothole. Or, it flips in an accident or is hit by a "hit and run" driver. Do you have enough cash on hand to get it fixed up? Once you meet your deductible, Collision coverage will help pay for your motorcycle, truck, or car to be repaired or replaced.

A deductible is the amount of money you have to pay toward repairs before your insurance covers the rest. Typical deductibles range from $100 to $1,500, but they vary by state and insurance company. Your Collision deductible is completely up to you. In general, the higher the deductible, the lower the premium for Collision.

Keep in mind that Collision coverage does not cover every situation that leads to damage to your vehicle. That's why Collision coverage goes hand-in-hand with Comprehensive, which has a deductible as well. If your car is damaged by a natural disaster, stolen, or vandalized, Comprehensive coverage will help cover the cost of having your car replaced or repaired. Together, Comprehensive and Collision are often referred to as "full coverage." However, that terminology can be misleading and often means different things to different people. At Direct Auto & Life Insurance we avoid using that term and will use the precise policy and coverage terms to describe the coverages you have.

Do I need Collision coverage in Jackson? It's not mandated by Mississippi insurance law, but you may be required to carry Collision coverage [marketing-content-p4-3] but you could be required to have Collision insurance if your vehicle is financed or leased. If you decide not to get Collision, your lender might buy it for you and add it to your existing loan balance. This route can be more expensive than if you purchase Collision insurance on your own. No car loan? Then getting Collision coverage is your choice! Before going without it, though, think about the age of your vehicle and whether you would feel comfortable paying for it to be repaired or replaced out of your own pocket. If that thought worries you, getting Collision insurance and a convenient deductible could prove valuable.
