It’s all about you. We want to help you make the right legal decisions.

We strive to help you make confident insurance and legal decisions. Finding trusted and reliable insurance quotes and legal advice should be easy. This doesn’t influence our content. Our opinions are our own.

Editorial Guidelines: We are a free online resource for anyone interested in learning more about legal topics and insurance. Our goal is to be an objective, third-party resource for everything legal and insurance related. We update our site regularly, and all content is reviewed by experts.

1. Consider your insurance as a backstop against major losses, not a way to pay for minor fender benders. Select larger deductibles, making sure you have adequate savings to pay the deductible amount if you have an accident.

2. Eliminate coverages you no longer need, such as comprehensive and collision for old cars that do not have much value and are not being financed. But be careful. There have been instances where some people dropped the non-required coverages for cars that no longer are being financed when they still had significant value. They then sustained heavy losses when an uninsured driver demolished their car.

3. Take advantage of discounts that might be offered by your company for driving education, safety devices, multiple vehicles, security devices, annual/low mileage, retiree, anti-lock brakes, accident free record, non-smoker, preferred driver, and many more.
