Fond du Lac Car Insurance

On this week’s Fond du Lac Car Insurance Q&A, we’ll be addressing what happens when an uninsured driver hits your car.


In Wisconsin, when two cars have an accident together, the police will determine one of the parties to be at-fault. The at-fault party will be responsible for all damages, both bodily and property. This is really where insurance steps in and pays the bills for the driver. The driver will then have a tarnished insurance record, which will affect monthly premiums.


Now you have $5,000 damages to your car, medical bills totaling $20,000 and lost wages totaling $900.
1.Your Uninsured Motorist Coverage acts in place of the other party’s insurance for bodily damages, up to your limit.
2.Your Collision Deductible will be what you pay to get your car repaired.
3.You can then sue the uninsured driver to get your collision deductible back.

BAD WAY – You sue the uninsured driver for $25,900 and, if you win, try to collect this money from them. Generally, uninsured drivers don’t have the assets for a large payout and actually collecting can be a challenge.

GOOD WAY – You have good car insurance and sue the uninsured driver for your $500 collision deductible. Collecting $500 is much easier than collecting $25,900.

[04/29/14]   5 Tips for home insurance savings

1. Save by displaying “Pride of Ownership”. Most companies have a preferred home program where, if you meet the higher standards, you pay less for insurance. If the company sees that you care about your home, it can pay off.

2. Fire Extinguisher + Smoke Alarm + Deadbolts = Savings. Many companies have a discount for homes with protective devices installed. Get extra savings if you have a burglar alarm.

3. How old is your roof? Let your agent know if you install new shingles, the savings can be substantial.

4. No mortgage or line of credit? Let us know, studies find that debt free homeowners are more attractive to insure, so prices can go down.

5. Have your auto insurance and home insurance with the same company. This is the single biggest money saver we’ve seen. Think about getting the lowest “total insurance cost” by bringing all your policies under one company’s protection.

[04/23/14]   5 Tips for auto insurance savings

1. If your insurance can provide roadside service, consider cancelling your AAA roadside service. Don’t pay for something twice unless it adds value to your life.

2. Make sure your comprehensive/collision deductibles are right for you. A $1,000 deductible may lower your insurance cost, but in the event of accident, can you pay $1,000 to get your car repaired? If not, it can save you money over the long run to lower that deductible.

3. Ask your agent if all the available discounts are turned on. Often there is a homeowners discount available on auto policies. The same goes for a low mileage discount.

4. Ask your agent if there’s a better insurance company for you. We at Behnke Insurance partner with many companies. Some are great matches for younger drivers, some are better matches for more mature drivers. We can do the homework for you.

5. Thinking of buying car A or car B? Ask your agent which costs less to insure, it takes us 5 minutes to get you that info.

[03/10/14]   What’s the most common mistake related to insurance?

The single largest mistake I see people make is

- The customer thinks they have something they don’t.

This can be the car owner driving without insurance, thinking “accidents don’t happen to me. I have savings if they do.” Insurance is protection from financial catastrophe. What could the damages be if your car hits two parked cars because of icy roads? There are about 10,000 reasons to think again.

This can also be the underinsured homeowner. He got a great deal on the internet for a loan value policy. Now, in the event of total loss, this homeowner will have to buy a smaller house or take out a larger loan, hurting his net worth.

This could be the working father who has a life insurance policy from his employer for $50,000. He’s the sole breadwinner for the family and they have $100,000 on their mortgage. Yes, he has life insurance. And upon death, his family has $50,000 of loans on their shoulders (+ $8,700 funeral expenses).

Health insurance is a topic of its own. There are many products out there and a licensed agent can help you optimize your selection given your unique life situation.

[03/05/14]   Home Insurance Terminology – HO3 vs. HO5 Policy

There are two basic types of homeowners insurance on the market: HO3 and HO5.

HO3: Open Peril Building and Named Peril Contents. Your personal property contents are protected from a list of perils. Examples include: fire or lightning, windstorm or hail, explosions, riot or civil commotion. If the peril (cause of loss) isn’t on the list, the insurance company doesn’t have to cover it.

HO5: Open Peril Building and Open Peril Contents. Your personal property contents are protected from all perils EXCEPT a list. Instead of covering only 16 things (odd perils can slip through), this covers everything except some odd things. It gives the policyholder a lot more power for more premium.

Read your policy. If there’s a certain thing you want to be sure you’re protected from, read your policy or ask for help understanding it.

**Contact a Behnke Insurance Agent for details**

[03/04/14]   Auto Insurance Terminology – Liability Only Policy

When you buy a Liability Only policy, what are you getting?

Bodily Injury Liability Coverage – Protects other people. If you cause an accident and hurt other people, this covers their bodily damages.

Property Damage Liability Coverage – Protects other people’s stuff. Cars, buildings, signs, light posts, this coverage pays for the property repairs.

Uninsured Motorist Coverage – Protects your people. If your party is hurt by an at-fault uninsured driver, this coverage pays for medical damages. 1 in 7 drivers are uninsured, per a 2011 statistic.

Underinsured Motorist Coverage – Protects your people. If your party is hurt by an at-fault driver who doesn’t have enough insurance, this coverage pays for medical damages.

Medical Payments Coverage – Regardless of who is at fault, this coverage pays for immediate medical needs of those involved in the accident (includes opposing party and your party).

**Contact a Behnke Insurance Agent for details**

[03/03/14]   Insurance Terminology – Premium, Deductible, Coverage

A better understanding of the following three insurance terms will help you shop for a policy:

Premium – What you pay for insurance coverage. You give your info to the insurance company, they calculate a premium you need to pay for their protection, then you decide if you are willing to pay that premium. This is a pre-paid expense, just like your monthly rent.

Deductible - In event of loss, you first pay the deductible and the insurance company pays the remainder. The company will give you many deductible options at many price points. A lower deductible is beneficial to the policyholder, so it costs more. A higher deductible is beneficial to the company, so it costs less.

Coverage – Defined by your contract, these are the ways and amounts the insurance company will financially protect you in the event of loss. There are many types of losses, some small and some catastrophic. In any case, the company will investigate into the loss and provide services as outlined in the contract.
