A Good Resource to Learn about Insurance: The Insurance Information Institute

By Daniel E DAngelo Esq on November 9, 2013

One of the goals of our blog is to help inform our readers on topics or issues we often deal with. Car insurance coverage is a frequent question, particularly what types of coverages should drivers have and how much? So when we find a resource we think is helpful we want to share it.

The Insurance Information Institute is a good resource to help you understand Automobile Insurance, and other insurance like Homeowners Insurance, Health Insurance, Life Insurance, and more. Under the Automobile Insurance topic, are tips and videos about rental car insurance, choosing a car insurance company, the amount of coverage necessary ($100,000/$300,000 is generally recommended as the minimum), saving money, auto insurance myths, and much more.

We talk a lot on our blog about the importance of having uninsured or underinsured motorist coverage, to cover you if the driver who caused the collision does not have insurance or not enough insurance. To help give you some perspective, according to a 2011 study by the Insurance Research Council referenced on the Insurance Information Institute’s website, approximately 13.8% or 1 in 7 drivers in 2009 were uninsured, and Colorado had a slightly higher estimated amount of uninsured drivers at 15.2%.

Their website is available in English and in Espanol at Insurance Information Institute.
