Actually, hitting a deer is generally covered by your comprehensive coverage, not collision. Comprehensive covers "acts of God," which include hitting animals because it was an act of God that the animal was there at that time. Reading your insurance policy will clarify exactly which kinds of claims are covered by which types of insurance. There are 3 catagories for car insurance: 1. Liability (covers you if you hit someone else) 2. Comprehensive (covers you if an uninsured driver hits you), and 3. Collision (covers you if you hit something -for instance, a deer-)

What does auto collision insurance mean?

Auto insurance consists of both liability insurance and physical damage coverage. Collision coverage is part of the physical damage section of an insurance policy and is designed to either repair or replace your vehicle if you are involved in an accident up to the fair market value of the vehicle. Collision will pay for both damages caused in an at-fault accident and damages caused in a not at-fault accident if the other party did not have insurance. If the other party did have insurance and they were responsible for the damages, the other party's liability insurance would pay for your vehicle damages through Property Damage coverage. You are responsible to pay for your collision deductible for at-fault accidents before a claims payout will be made.

Car Insurance: How to Get The Best Rate?

The best way to make sure your car insurance is cheap is not to shop between companies (though that helps) but to make sure that any company insuring you will not have to pay out. To start, avoid getting tickets, even those for speeding and parking, as they drive up your insurance rate. Second, get a sensible, used car, which will be cheaper to own, operate and repair. Third, practice safe driving habits, and enroll in any courses your company offers. Many companies offer significant savings to drivers just for going through a few courses on safe driving or for demonstrating safe driving tendencies.
