Car Insurance

The most dangerous thing that most of us do every day is drive around in our cars especially on the crowded streets of cities like Providence, East Providence or even Barrington or Bristol.  We can help you get the best coverage for your protection.

How necessary is car insurance? To begin with, it is the law. In Rhode Island, you are required to carry auto insurance or face criminal fines. Additionally, each year in the United States there are millions of car accidents that cause serious damage to vehicles and people. We see minor and major accidents every day. For those involved, this can mean enormous inconveniences, large healthcare expenditures and huge legal fees. By paying a little now, you can save a lot later.

  • Healthcare Supplement – In the event of a serious accident, sometimes your healthcare insurance isn’t enough to cover an ambulance ride, emergency room visit, and follow up doctor’s appointments. Your car insurance can help cover expenses related to the injuries you sustain during an accident.
  • Keep You Moving – Even minor accidents can keep your car off the road while it undergoes repairs. Whether it is getting to work or picking the kids up from school, transportation is essential. Your automobile insurance can help you cover the cost of a rental car while your ride is in the shop.
  • Protect Your Investment – Make no mistake – your car is an investment. For many of us, it is one of the biggest investments we will ever make. Without proper automobile insurance, you could be on the hook to cover any damages your car sustains. Additionally, you could be on the hook for any damages sustained by other cars or individuals involved.
