In the wake of the new coronavirus, many people are beginning to question how the virus will impact their insurance policies, one of those being car insurance. Fortunately, we are here to tell you that for the most part, your car insurance will not be affected by the virus. However, the way in which you deal with your insurance company may be. Though many are largely ordered to stay home, if you are still out on the road and get into a car accident, you will most likely not be able to walk directly into your insurance company’s office. Instead, you will probably have to deal with them online, through their app, or by phone or email.

You should also expect that in some cases, you may receive compensation for injuries/damage to your car in a slower fashion than normal, as auto body shops are closing and companies across the country are coming to grips with working remotely. In other cases, you may find that your insurance company place holds on certain policy terminations due to nonpayments, as well as make other adjustments to better accommodate policyholders in the wake of the new coronavirus. It’s hard to tell to what extent this virus will impact car insurance in the end, however, we will keep you updated as we learn more.
