Am I Supposed to Get Car Insurance?

The idea of protecting something that is precious to you is an instinct that is a tale as old as time. In fact, it is not exclusive to human beings alone as various species have an instinct of preservation for the things that they deem of value to them – their kin, their possessions, or their territory.

Insurance is one of these complexities that have become necessary for the everyday human being. There are a number of different kinds of insurance – for your life, for your home, and for your car (just to name a few). However, some people think that getting insurance for your car is something that is not absolutely necessary and so it begs the question: am I supposed to get car insurance?

It is legally expected of you to have car insurance upon acquisition of your vehicle not just to protect your investment (which is the car), but also your most valuable asset: your life. People often take the idea of protecting your future self for granted for they think that as long as they obey the law and follow every regulation by the book then they are safe from anything possibly going wrong.

A lot of the victims of car accidents are not people who are directly at fault for the situation that caused the accident. Sometimes, all it takes is a runaway branch from a tree that flew off due to inclement weather. This branch could crash through the windshield of your car and circumstances of this instance shouldn’t be a problem – if you had the right kind of insurance.

Really, getting insurance is your move that will protect both your future self and the future state of your present investment.
