What drives up car insurance rates in Milwaukee?

Where you live in Milwaukee affects your car insurance rates. Besides your driving history and credit score, where you live is one of the biggest contributing factors to the car insurance rates you'll pay. The reason? Crime, theft and uninsured motorists vary by zip code. So if you find yourself in a neighborhood that doesn’t play well with others, car insurance companies may consider you a high risk to insure, meaning: your rates could be higher than those of a pal who lives just around the block. And, unfortunately Milwaukee is no exception to the rule. From zip code 53154 to 53206, premiums rise by 52 percent—that’s $585.

Milwaukee Car Insurance

If I am at fault in an accident, what is to keep my passengers from suing me for their injuries?

It's important to keep in mind that medical payments coverage pays for your injuries as well. In addition, what if your passengers are your children or family members?

We will be purchasing our first car shortly before moving from WI to CA. How should we navigate car insurance?

Every state has separate laws, insurance plans, and registrations, but you shouldn't have an issue buying a vehicle in one state and moving to another state. If at all possible, I would wait and buy the vehicle in California — this way, you would only pay all the fees once.

Should I keep full coverage on my vehicle or switch to liability?

The first thing I would do would be to determine a rough estimate of the value of the vehicle. I recommend using NADA guides or some other valuation service like Kelly Blue Book.

Reoccurring mold and homeowners insurance

Unfortunately, there's no way to answer that without knowledge of the policy itself. Your friend needs to check her home owners policy to see what perils (events) are covered under her policy. For more information about general home insurance policies, check out our guide here:Home Insurance
