When it comes to finding the perfect new car, consumers are motivated by very different factors. For some, the size of the vehicle's engine and its overall performance will play a major role, while for others it may be appearance and amenities. Still others will put significant stock in an automaker's reputation for reliability.
According to the insurance information institute, nearly 12 percent of drivers in Georgia have no auto insurance. A much higher percentage have only the minimum amount of liability coverage, which is $25,000 for personal injury for one person $50,000 for all people injured in an accident. Your costs may exceed $25,000 for a single night's stay in a hospital.
Paying medical bills after an accident can be a problem, even if you have health insurance. With sky-high deductibles and copays, you could end up thousands of dollars in debt - with no recovery from the other driver's insurance company in sight.
