The Chubb Group Insurance will be adding to, and expanding, aspects of their automotive policies. Customers in four states can now take advantage of pet coverage that was added to their auto policies. The additional coverage will help to pay for medical treatment the pet may require if it is in the vehicle when the owner is involved in an accident.
The Chubb Group is also raising the limit on loss-of-use coverage, and broadening the lease (GAP) coverage. Additionally, they are adding replacement cost coverage on new vehicles; if an accident occurs within the first year, after you purchase a new car, if that car is totaled, you can purchase another vehicle of equal value, with no deductible, and no other costs out of pocket from you.
