Like most other states, Illinois requires all vehicle owners to have auto insurance. Getting a policy not only fulfills your legal obligations but also financially protects you and your family in the event of an accident. Here at American Auto Insurance, you can build a custom policy that meets state requirements and provides protection in various scenarios.
Here are just a few of the coverage types we offer:
- Bodily injury coverage: Illinois requires all drivers to have bodily injury coverage of at least $25,000 per person per accident and $50,000 per accident. This coverage pays for costs relating to the deaths or injuries sustained by pedestrians or occupants of other vehicles, plus any costs related to your passengers who aren't members of your household.
- Property damage coverage: The minimum requirement for property damage coverage is $20,000 per accident. It covers costs for damages to another person's vehicle and property such as trees, fences, signs, utility poles, or buildings.
- Uninsured motorist bodily injury coverage: This policy covers your bodily injuries that result from hit-and-run accidents or at-fault drivers with no auto insurance. The state minimums for this type of coverage are $25,000 per person and $50,000 per accident.
American Auto Insurance also offers "full coverage" policies, which include collision coverage and comprehensive coverage that pays for damage to your vehicle that is not the result of a collision. While collision coverage will pay for damage to your own vehicle in the event of an accident, comprehensive coverage can protect you and your family from the exorbitant costs of damage from weather, fire, vandalism, and even theft. You may have to pay a deductible ranging from $0 to $1,000. While Illinois doesn't require this type of policy, your lender might.
Seeing how important it is for drivers to have auto insurance, high monthly rates shouldn't stop you from obtaining a policy. Our team is proud to offer you the cheapest auto insurance in Illinois. For over three decades, we've worked with citizens like you to provide the affordable protection you deserve. We don't implement credit scoring, meaning you can find an inexpensive policy with us even if other agencies have turned you down.
If you don't believe how affordable our policies are, just take a look at our testimonials. Customers who've switched from other providers rave about how much money our policies save them. Some of our customers even enjoy rates as low as $14 per month. To see if you qualify for these prices, consider requesting a free quote. Factors that can influence your rate include: Age, Gender, Marital status, Your driving record, The amount of coverage you purchase, Your location, The type of vehicle you own, How often you use your vehicle, How far you drive your vehicle, Who else in your household drives your vehicle.
Yes, we’ve created various coverage amounts covering multiple circumstances. Typically, you can select from three to five coverage levels for collision, bodily damage, damage to physical property, and even uninsured motorist coverage, to name a few.
Even though the law requires everyone to purchase car insurance, not everyone adheres to the rule. Some drivers choose not to buy insurance. Others let the coverage lapse for several reasons. If a person without auto insurance injures you or damages your vehicle in an accident, your uninsured motorist coverage pays you a benefit.
Of course, you’ll need to provide personal information, including your name, address, date of birth, driver’s license number, and social security number. We’ll use this information to confirm your identity and check your driving history.
We’ll need information about your car, such as the make, model, and year. In addition, it would help if you had the VIN and mileage ready when you apply, as this helps determine your vehicle’s value and safety rating.
Yes, American Auto Insurance provides SR-22 coverage. Illinois requires high-risk drivers to secure SR-22 coverage, a bond that verifies sufficient coverage exists. We have extensive experience in delivering SR-22 insurance in Illinois.
Aside from driving safely, you can take additional steps to lower your insurance premiums. As stated earlier, we can customize a plan to suit your current financial situation. Illinois requires everyone to carry a minimum amount of liability coverage. Therefore, you can lower your liability coverage to save money on monthly premiums.
Choosing higher deductibles can save you money on your premium. However, your deductible must be satisfied before your policy pays out. For example, if you have a $500 deductible, you must cover the first $500 in damages before the insurance pays out. Therefore, if your accident resulted in $5,000 in damages, the insurance pays you $4,500, and you must pay the rest to cover repairs and restore the property.
Of course, choosing a higher deductible exposes you to more financial risk, but you can save hundreds of dollars a year in premiums. We recommend you determine how much you can afford to pay if you get in an accident and keep your deductible within that range.
Also, you can adjust the amount of property and medical coverage you carry to lower your premiums. For example, we allow you to select different coverage amounts for yourself and those in your vehicle, the amount paid to other motorists and their passengers should you be at fault, and the amount paid for damage to fences, homes, and other property should you damage physical items in an accident.
You can lower your insurance premium by purchasing an older vehicle versus a new one. New cars cost more to insure because they cost more to replace. Some people want that brand new sports car but find they can’t afford the high insurance premium. We recommend you shop for insurance before you purchase a vehicle to help you build a budget.
You never know what's going to happen when you're out on the road. Drivers frequently experience flat tires, dead batteries, and various mechanical problems. If you're having a particularly bad day, you might even run out of gas or lock your keys inside the car. These issues are super inconvenient, as they can lead to expensive repairs and result in you being late for work.
Here's the good news: Your policy through American Auto Insurance comes with 24/7 emergency roadside assistance. You can call our toll-free number day or night for the help you need to get back on the road. Our team partners with service stations and garages across the state that meet you where you're stranded.
