For drivers who may be at risk for car theft, whether due to car type or location, you may want to consider the type of auto insurance coverage you have. Comprehensive car insurance covers damages or events that are caused by a car driving into something else. Essentially, comprehensive auto insurance covers damages that the driver has no control over. For instance, comprehensive insurance may cover:

  • Falling objects
  • Natural disaster
  • Theft
  • Damage caused by an impact of an animal. If a driver swerves to an avoid animal, comprehensive insurance will not cover the damage. Collision insurance would cover the damage of a car that swerves to avoid an animal.
  • Vandalism
  • Fire or explosion
