Driverless cars – insurance for the future?

As you may have noticed, there is a lot of news coming out lately about driverless cars – Google is one of the main players in the field,  but Carnegie Mellon University made a big splash locally and nationally when it unveiled a very successful test-drive in the Cranberry area nearly two years ago.  AContinue reading “Driverless cars – insurance for the future?”

Identity Theft, Flood Insurance, and antique coverage – Part Three

In this final installment of our 3 part mini-series, we are going to review a little bit of information about coverage for antiques and high-value items you may have in your home.
