Having a good grasp of your car insurance policy can be of help when determining the best coverages at the best deductibles and correct limits. Policy terminology can be impossible to understand and coverage can change by endorsement. These are typical coverage types available from car insurance companies.
Coverage for uninsured or underinsured drivers
Your UM/UIM coverage gives you protection from other drivers when they do not carry enough liability coverage. Covered losses include injuries sustained by your vehicle’s occupants as well as damage to your Mitsubishi Eclipse.
Due to the fact that many drivers only purchase the least amount of liability that is required, their liability coverage can quickly be exhausted. For this reason, having high UM/UIM coverages should not be overlooked.
Comprehensive car insurance
Comprehensive insurance covers damage caused by mother nature, theft, vandalism and other events. A deductible will apply and then insurance will cover the rest of the damage.
Comprehensive can pay for claims such as damage from getting keyed, a tree branch falling on your vehicle, falling objects and fire damage. The most you’ll receive from a claim is the ACV or actual cash value, so if the vehicle is not worth much consider dropping full coverage.
Coverage for medical expenses
Personal Injury Protection (PIP) and medical payments coverage reimburse you for short-term medical expenses like ambulance fees, dental work, doctor visits, hospital visits and pain medications. The coverages can be utilized in addition to your health insurance program or if you lack health insurance entirely. They cover both the driver and occupants and will also cover being hit by a car walking across the street. Personal injury protection coverage is not available in all states but can be used in place of medical payments coverage
Collision coverage protection
Collision coverage covers damage to your Eclipse resulting from a collision with an object or car. You have to pay a deductible and the rest of the damage will be paid by collision coverage.
Collision coverage pays for claims such as scraping a guard rail, colliding with a tree, crashing into a ditch, damaging your car on a curb and rolling your car. Collision coverage makes up a good portion of your premium, so analyze the benefit of dropping coverage from lower value vehicles. Another option is to raise the deductible in order to get cheaper collision rates.
Auto liability insurance
This coverage provides protection from injuries or damage you cause to a person or their property by causing an accident. It protects you from claims by other people. It does not cover damage sustained by your vehicle in an accident.
Split limit liability has three limits of coverage: per person bodily injury, per accident bodily injury, and a property damage limit. As an example, you may have values of 50/100/50 that translate to $50,000 bodily injury coverage, a limit of $100,000 in injury protection per accident, and $50,000 of coverage for damaged propery.
Liability can pay for claims such as funeral expenses, repair costs for stationary objects, medical expenses and repair bills for other people’s vehicles. The amount of liability coverage you purchase is up to you, but it’s cheap coverage so purchase as much as you can afford.
