Accidents can happen at any time, even to the most experienced driver. To be sure you can get back on the road quickly after an accident, it’s imperative that you have Auto Insurance.
Auto Insurance covers damages to your vehicle that resulted from an accident, or other covered event. It also helps to cover medical expenses of anyone who is injured as a result of an accident caused by you or your vehicle. Auto Insurance can also help get you back on your feet if your car is damaged in some other way (ex. wind, fire) or is stolen.
There’s no such thing as a one-size-fits-all insurance policy, so whether you drive a car, a motorcycle, or anything in between, let Corcoran & Havlin find the right coverage for you.

Flood coverage is generally excluded on the basic Homeowners policy. However, some Homeowners policies provide coverage for backup of sewers and drains that cause flooding in your basement. This coverage can be purchased for a nominal premium. Check with your insurance agent to see if this coverage is applicable to you & get you a quote.
If, however, you live in a flood-prone area, you should consider, and may be required by your lending institution, to purchase a flood insurance policy. Contact your agent to learn more about the Federal Flood Insurance Plan, the exclusions, and the limitations of coverage in these policies.
If you are a named insured on a Massachusetts Auto policy, the coverage travels with you when you rent or borrow a car. If you have collision and comprehensive coverage and are involved in an accident or the vehicle is damaged, then your policy would respond as if it were your car. Your liability limits will also travel with you. Keep in mind, that this only applies to the named insured (owners) listed at the top of the policy - not all drivers. If there is someone who has access to your vehicle on a regular basis, they should be added to your policy. Also note that any “loss of income” charges that a rental contract may make you responsible for are not covered. We recommend calling us to discuss before renting a car.
No, your policy does not provide coverage for a rented or borrowed truck. If you are renting a truck, you should check with the rental company regarding the purchase of collision and comprehensive insurance. If you are borrowing a truck, make sure you determine whether or not the owner has purchased collision or comprehensive coverage. If the owner does not have insurance, you may be personally liable for any damage to that truck which is the result of your negligent operation.
We offer many Registry of Motor Vehicle services in our Wellesley office. Many transactions can also be completed online. However, there are certain transactions must still be completed at the RMV. Contact us with any questions you have about our RMV services.
- Good Student discount: Many insurance companies offer a discount for students who maintain a B or better average GPA.
- Driver’s education: Many companies will provide a discount for teens that have attended a driver’s education course.
The Massachusetts personal auto policy only applies in the United States, its territories, possessions and Canada. If you plan to travel or rent a vehicle outside of these areas you must purchase insurance from the rental agency. If you are planning to travel to Canada in the future, please be sure to contact our office for a Canada card to show proof of automobile coverage.
