Thanksgiving Homeowner’s Insurance!

Carving Turkey DinnerThanksgiving is next week! Can you believe it? Time is flying by, and the year is almost over. As the holidays approach, the number of homeowner’s insurance claims increases statistically. Did you know that more homeowner’s insurance claims for fire happen on Thanksgiving Day than any other day of the year?

Most people don’t think of Thanksgiving as a day to be cautious, but exercising caution on a day where more cooking is done throughout the country than any other day is important. With all the people around and games on TV, getting distracted is quite easy to do.

Cooking related home insurance claims more than double on this day. The leading factor in these Thanksgiving Day fires is when someone leaves items cooking unattended, which can lead to deadly grease fires. Grease fires are the hardest to put out, and can spread very quickly. Deep frying your turkey is more dangerous than more traditional methods as the fryers can tip over easily and spill deadly hot oil or grease all over the place.

Some tips to keep your home safe during Turkey Day are:

  • Pay attention to your Turkey. If you plan to let it cook for hours and hours, have a schedule of who is going to “keep watch” on it regularly. 
  • If you’re planning on watching any games on Thanksgiving, try to have the main courses already cooked before they start so you can enjoy the games instead of constantly having to rush around the kitchen.
  • Don’t overfill the oil in the fryer pot – overfilling can lead to hot oil spattering and spilling out once the turkey is put in. Oil hitting a burner on a stove can instantly catch fire and spread
  • Never spray water on a grease fire, as that will spread the fire. Keep a fire extinguisher handy
  • Keep children and pets out of the kitchen on this hectic cooking day as it can be extremely dangerous.

Happy Thanksgiving from our entire Vern Fonk insurance staff in Washington and Oregon. Stay safe and enjoy your time with family and friends.

Auto Insurance Coverages

Figuring out all the industry jargon when shopping for car insurance can be frustrating.  Knowing the limits of each category can only help you if you understand what they each mean.  The auto insurance agents at Vern Fonk are ready to help you determine just how much coverage you may need on your car insurance. We’re ready to help you understand exactly what you’re paying for and make sure you are getting the best bang for your buck.

Here are the most common types of coverages you’ll find on a typical car insurance policy:

Collision Insurance Coverage

Collision coverage helps pay for repairs and replacement to your car if your accident is at fault and involves another car, crashing into another object or rolling over.

Comprehensive Insurance Coverage

This type of coverage helps pay for repairs and replacement to your car if it has been damaged due to something that is not accident related. This may include fire, theft, vandalism, falling objects, animals (hitting on the road), and natural disasters.

Bodily Injury and Property Damage Liability Coverage

This type of coverage is the most common coverage and comes on just about every policy. The “liability” part of this coverage means “responsibility” and refers to both covering the bodily injury damage caused to people in the crash and the property damage damage done to vehicles in the crash. So basically, it helps pay for expenses for medical bills and property damage if you are at fault in an accident.

Uninsured Motorist Coverage

It has been reported that about 1 in every 7 drivers on the road are uninsured in the US. An accident with an uninsured driver can result in costs that aren’t covered by your basic liability insurance coverage on your policy. This is where uninsured motorist coverage comes in. It can help with costs associated with accidents with uninsured drivers. It’s an added protection that can help you make sure you don’t get stuck with the bill. This coverage can cover bodily injury or property damage or both.

Personal Injury Protection

Personal Injury Protection (aka PIP) helps pay for medical expenses, income loss and benefits for yourself and members of your household in the case of accidental injury or death. This can include lost wages due to injury, medical bills and other collateral costs.

These are just some of the basic coverages that many policies will cover. Speak with a Vern Fonk car insurance specialist in Washington or Oregon today to figure out how much coverage you should have on your vehicle and on yourself.

Small Accidents Can Equal Big Consequences

Every business, whether large or small, needs to have a good business insurance policy. Business insurance can help you from going out of business when you least expect it.

Accidents happen. There’s just no way around it. This is especially true at the workplace. No matter how many safety seminars yourself and your employees attend, things can and will go wrong at some time or another. Most of the time the accidents are relatively small and easy to fix, but sometimes they can turn out to be a lot larger than they started out as. Check out this workplace fail video we found:

Can you imagine the amount of money this accident cost the company, not to mention the cleanup after a mess like this? We pray they had a good insurance company to help them get back on track.

After purchasing a well rounded business insurance policy it is important to still practice and review basic safety principles. Holding regular safety meetings is something most successful businesses have in common, and it couldn’t hurt to have procedures in place for such accidents.
