A new guide advises on what consumers with disabilities should consider when researching auto insurance
Foster City, CA – December 12, 2019 – Insurance.com, a one-stop destination for unbiased, expert advice on auto, health, home and life insurance, just released new guidance on navigating auto insurance for those with disabilities.
Insurance analysts identify 11 factors that are typically used to set auto insurance rates—none of which include physical abilities:
- Type of car
- Vehicle cost
- Car size
- Theft history for vehicle type
- Driving record
- Driving experience
- Annual mileage
- Credit history
Fortunately, insurance companies can’t discriminate based on a driver’s physical abilities. But, consumers may need to ensure they are adequately covered for important vehicle modifications and/or medical equipment. These additions can increase a vehicle’s value. So, it’s important to make sure there is enough insurance to cover these enhancements.
“Items such as wheelchairs are generally covered for damage in comprehensive auto insurance,” explains Les Masterson, Insurance.com managing editor. “It’s a good idea to be completely clear about all vehicle modifications and equipment you may regularly be transporting in order to have enough car insurance coverage.”
Insurance.com recognizes that those with disabilities face challenges when applying for various types of insurance.
