A crack in your windshield can feel like a minor issue compared to totaling your Kia in a car accident, but it will likely warrant filing an insurance claim. A larger crack or a totally shattered windshield should be looked at by an auto glass specialist before you can safely, and possibly legally, get behind the wheel.
The positive news is that if you have a comprehensive auto insurance policy, it should cover a replacement windshield!
Almost all shattered windshield glass will fall under the comprehensive physical damage portion of a full coverage car insurance policy. In all of Florida, your insurance policy will not require you to pay a $250 to $1,000 deductible for replacement, unless the damage was incurred in a collision. It is important to understand that a liability insurance policy will not cover the expense of a windshield replacement.
How much will it cost me to replace my damaged windshield?
