Broad Form can also be collision coverage. This is a bit more technical in terms of getting broad form insurance for collisions in addition to your standard collision coverage. This is probable best to call and chat with us about, but basically if you have a broad form collision policy, you’ll only have to pay your deductible if you’re found to be more than 50% at fault in a covered accident. If you’re less than 50% at fault, you won’t have to pay your deductible. That’s why you would want it on top of the standard collision coverage, to help with the deductible.
