Auto Insurance

You may be the best driver in the world; however, you are always at risk of an accident. Even if the accident is minor, your car is certain to undergo some amount of damage. Having auto insurance will ensure that you, your passengers, your car, your finances, and other drivers, are protected in the event of an accident.

FG Insurance Agents and Brokers offers a wide variety of auto insurance coverage options to suit your needs and budget.

Third-Party

Third-Party Auto Insurance protects you from liability for damage to other people’s property and for the death or bodily injury to persons outside your vehicle if an accident is your fault. Third-party insurance is purchased by the insured (first party) from FG Insurance Agents & Brokers (second party) for protection against another party’s claims (third party).

Third-Party, Fire & Theft

Third-Party Fire & Theft Insurance protects you as per Third-Party and covers the cost of replacing your stolen or burnt vehicle.

Comprehensive & Collision

Comprehensive & Collision Insurance coverages pay to repair or replace your auto if it is stolen or damaged in an accident, regardless of who is at fault. For each coverage, you select the deductible that you pay out of pocket. Your insurance company pays for the remaining damage up to the limits you select. With Comprehensive coverage, your insurance company pays for damage to your auto caused by an event other than a collision, such as fire, theft or vandalism. If you hit an animal, or if your vehicle is flooded or stolen, Comprehensive coverage will apply.

With Collision coverage, your insurance company pays for damage to your auto when you collide with another vehicle or object. If you hit a car, a pole or another inanimate object, Collision coverage will apply.
