Understanding the coverages of your policy can be of help when determining appropriate coverage and the correct deductibles and limits. The coverage terms in a policy can be confusing and coverage can change by endorsement.
Coverage for medical expenses – Medical payments and Personal Injury Protection insurance provide coverage for bills like doctor visits, prosthetic devices, X-ray expenses, dental work and rehabilitation expenses. They are often used to cover expenses not covered by your health insurance program or if you are not covered by health insurance. They cover all vehicle occupants as well as any family member struck as a pedestrian. PIP is only offered in select states and gives slightly broader coverage than med pay
Collision coverage – Collision insurance pays to fix your vehicle from damage resulting from a collision with a stationary object or other vehicle. You first must pay a deductible then the remaining damage will be paid by your insurance company.
Collision can pay for claims like crashing into a ditch, sustaining damage from a pot hole, scraping a guard rail, crashing into a building and colliding with a tree. Paying for collision coverage can be pricey, so analyze the benefit of dropping coverage from vehicles that are older. It’s also possible to choose a higher deductible in order to get cheaper collision rates.
Auto liability insurance – This coverage provides protection from damage that occurs to other people or property in an accident. It protects YOU against other people’s claims. It does not cover damage to your own property or vehicle.
It consists of three limits, bodily injury per person, bodily injury per accident and property damage. As an example, you may have values of 100/300/100 that means you have $100,000 bodily injury coverage, a limit of $300,000 in injury protection per accident, and $100,000 of coverage for damaged propery.
Liability coverage pays for things like court costs, repair bills for other people’s vehicles, repair costs for stationary objects and loss of income. How much liability coverage do you need? That is a decision to put some thought into, but it’s cheap coverage so purchase as much as you can afford.
Coverage for uninsured or underinsured drivers – This coverage gives you protection when other motorists either are underinsured or have no liability coverage at all. This coverage pays for hospital bills for your injuries as well as your vehicle’s damage.
Due to the fact that many drivers only purchase the least amount of liability that is required, their limits can quickly be used up. This is the reason having UM/UIM coverage is important protection for you and your family.
Comprehensive auto insurance – Comprehensive insurance covers damage that is not covered by collision coverage. You first must pay your deductible then your comprehensive coverage will pay.
Comprehensive insurance covers claims such as a broken windshield, damage from getting keyed and damage from a tornado or hurricane. The maximum amount your auto insurance company will pay is the cash value of the vehicle, so if the vehicle is not worth much consider removing comprehensive coverage.
