Will My Insurance Policy Cover Damages Caused by Hitting a Deer?

Deer have been known to dart out in the road when you least expect it, even in areas that aren’t necessarily rural. Since you can never predict when you might encounter a deer while driving, you might wonder if your insurance policy will provide coverage if you were to hit one. Serving the greater Milford, CT area, White Oak Insurance LLC is here to assist in understanding your options. 

What Type of Coverage Do You Have?

The type of coverage you currently have will determine whether your insurance policy will provide coverage in the event you were to hit a deer. If you have liability insurance only, then your coverage likely won’t be adequate to cover hitting an animal or other object. On the other hand, if you have full coverage insurance, then you will likely have nothing to worry about. If comprehensive insurance is included along with your collision, then you will be covered. 

Is Another Vehicle Involved?

If you only hit a deer while driving and you have comprehensive coverage, then you have no worries. However, if you swerve in an attempt to avoid a deer and you end up hitting another vehicle, then comprehensive coverage may not be sufficient. Collision is the type of insurance that covers accidents, regardless of the cause. Therefore, if you’re not sure of the type of coverage you have, then you need to double-check, so you’ll be sure.
