Car insurance and earthquakes

Large earthquakes may be a rare occurrence compared to other natural disasters, but they can cause major damage if they happen. In 2014 the value of insured damages was $150 million.

A large part of the destruction was because of the ground shaking. It can result in damaged roads, broken cars, damage to garages and other buildings, broken pipelines, landslides, rock falls, and more.

If you have the right car insurance coverage, you can be happy knowing your auto insurance will help you repair your car if it is damages because of an earthquake.


But you need to be sure that you insurance covers damages caused by earthquakes. You should contact your insurance company and find out if you are insured.
