Auto Insurance Terms Every Insurance Purchaser Should Familiarize Themselves With

Here at S & S Insurance Services Inc., serving the greater Oklahoma City, OK area, we have noticed that many people are unfamiliar with common lingo or terms that are used in the automobile insurance industry. Unfortunately, this can make it hard to understand specific policy information or to even select the policy that is best suited to that individual. Our agency wants to make it as easy as possible to select the right insurance policy for your needs.

Here are just a few of the auto insurance terms that every insurance purchaser should familiarize themselves with:

Liability Insurance

Liability insurance helps to cover other individuals’ cars, property, or expenses if you are at fault for an accident. Every state has a mandatory minimum liability insurance coverage amount, but you are able to purchase more than the minimum amount. 

Comprehensive Coverage

Comprehensive coverage is auto insurance coverage that covers your vehicle for events outside of accidents. This may include fire, theft or flooding. If your car is not paid off yet, you may be required by the loan company to carry comprehensive coverage. 


A deductible is an amount you will have to pay out-of-pocket, or up-front before your insurance policy pays for any remaining balance. Not every policy has the same deductible, so it is important to consider what the deductible is on a specific policy.
