Accidents Involving Animals Happen, Protect Yourself With Full Coverage Auto Insurance, Andalusia, Alabama

No matter what kind of insurance you’re looking for, health insurance, disability insurance, life insurance, full coverage auto insurance or something else, Ron Nall Insurance Agency in Andalusia, AL will help you get the protection you need. If you ever need to file a claim, Ron Nall Insurance Agency will help you through the claims process, too.

The odds that a driver will have to file a claim due to a collision with a deer, elk or moose are 1 out of 169. Over the past year, approximately 1.25 million claims were filed because of car accidents involving deer, elk or moose. Just because the odds that you’ll be involved in a collision with an animal aren’t as small as you might have imagined, it doesn’t mean that you are destined to have an accident involving one.

There are some simple things you can do to protect yourself from having a collision with an animal while you are behind the wheel:

  • Be Mindful Of Your Surroundings & Changing Seasons: Keep your eyes on the road and on the fringes of the road for any signs of animal activity, especially when you’re near a body of water or wooded area. Fall is hunting and mating season for some animals, including deer, which means they will be more active during the fall months and will pose more of a threat to drivers.

  • Be Aware Of The Time: Many animals are most active during mealtimes and feed in the early morning and evening hours. Be on the alert for their presence on or around roads during these times.
  • Flick Your Headlights: If you see a deer in the path of your vehicle, put your high beams on and flick your headlights. Ideally, this will prevent the animal from fixating on your lights and encourage the deer to get off of the road.
  • Obey The Law: Follow the speed limit and wear your seat belt. Following the speed limit will give you more time to react to an animal in the road than you would have if you were speeding.
If you are looking for protection, in addition to the coverage that’s included in your full coverage auto insurance policy, talk to Ron Nall Insurance Agency in Andalusia, AL about health insurance and disability insurance today. You can contact Ron Nall Insurance Agency by calling (334) 222-3106.
