There are a number of reasons why your windshield can sustain cracks or chips. It’s vital that you know whether your insurance company covers windshield damage. Damages related to your windshield and other glass parts are considered by insurance companies as a comprehensive claim. This means that your windshield glass repairs and replacements are only insured if you have purchased comprehensive insurance coverage already. All it takes is one call to your insurance company to find out if you have coverage on your car.

If you have comprehensive insurance coverage, you most likely have a deductible. There are some companies that offer no deductible on comprehensive coverage but most of the time, a deductible is selected to reduce the cost of insurance overall. A lot of insurance companies offer a deductible on comprehensive coverage that covers almost all comprehensive claims but offer a zero dollar deductible for glass damage. Your best bet is to the check your insurance policy to find out what your deductible is for comprehensive claims.
You should also know that there are a few options to consider if you have a deductible you cannot afford:

You can decide to repair your windshield at a later date when you have the money available to you to cover the cost of repairs. With this option, it’s important to note that repairing your glass as quickly as possible is the wisest decision as you will be fined if caught driving with a damaged windshield.

You can inquire with a few glass companies to see if they are able to waive some or all of your deductible. A lot of auto-glass repair companies will do so in order to gain your business.
