Like other auto insurers, Nationwide has offered some financial relief to customers in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. The auto insurance arm of Nationwide offered an across-the-board $50 refund per policy to all auto insurance customers with active policies as of March 31, 2020. In addition, Nationwide has expanded the availability of its usage-based insurance products, which can save customers who are driving less because of the pandemic. Nationwide has also contributed $5 million to local and national charities for the pandemic response effort.
Nationwide Car Insurance Coverage
You have access to the following types of coverage with Nationwide Auto Insurance:
Every state in the nation, with the exception of New Hampshire, requires liability coverage for car owners. This kind of coverage protects against the financial loss of bodily injury or property damage.
Bodily injury liability can pay for the bills associated with the injury or death of a person who is hurt during an accident in which you are at fault. This coverage can pay for things like medical expenses and lost wages. Property damage liability can pay for the bills associated with damaged property that occurs because of an accident where you are at fault. Nationwide’s liability coverage can also pay for your legal defense if you are sued as a result of an accident where you are at fault.
If your vehicle is damaged by striking another object or vehicle, or by rolling over, collision coverage can pay to repair or replace the car, no matter who is at fault. You will be responsible for a deductible when making a collision coverage claim. Collision coverage is not required by law, but some leases and financed vehicles are required to carry this coverage as a condition of the lease or financing agreement.
