A recent study conducted by the Consumer Federation of America found that most drivers who drove 5,000 miles or less per year across the United States didn’t reap the rewards in terms of insurance savings. The one exception to this was California. While the average motorist who went less than 5,000 miles per year saved only $30 for that benefit, in California, state laws mandate that insurance companies give the drivers annual mileage the second most weight in the determination of premiums.
That meant that those motorists going less than 5,000 miles per year saved up to $81 per year on average, representing nearly 9% of the money spent on insurance premiums. Even when you have appropriate car insurance to support you in the even on an accident, one catastrophic injury from a drunk driving, distracted driving or other serious issue could set you back for months or even years.
When your insurance benefits do not provide you with the appropriate support to be able to move on with your life, you need to have an attorney on your side who is practiced in the area of fighting back when you have been seriously hurt.
