Learning about specific coverages of insurance can help you determine the best coverages and the correct deductibles and limits. The coverage terms in a policy can be confusing and coverage can change by endorsement. These are the usual coverages found on most insurance policies.
Coverage for uninsured or underinsured drivers – Your UM/UIM coverage protects you and your vehicle’s occupants from other drivers when they either are underinsured or have no liability coverage at all. This coverage pays for medical payments for you and your occupants as well as your vehicle’s damage.
Since a lot of drivers only carry the minimum required liability limits, their liability coverage can quickly be exhausted. So UM/UIM coverage is important protection for you and your family. Most of the time the UM/UIM limits are identical to your policy’s liability coverage.
Comprehensive insurance – Comprehensive insurance covers damage caused by mother nature, theft, vandalism and other events. You first have to pay a deductible then the remaining damage will be covered by your comprehensive coverage.
Comprehensive insurance covers claims like theft, hail damage, hitting a bird, a tree branch falling on your vehicle and falling objects. The highest amount you’ll receive from a claim is the actual cash value, so if the vehicle’s value is low it’s probably time to drop comprehensive insurance.
Coverage for medical expenses – Medical payments and Personal Injury Protection insurance reimburse you for expenses such as ambulance fees, surgery, X-ray expenses and pain medications. They can be utilized in addition to your health insurance plan or if you do not have health coverage. It covers all vehicle occupants in addition to any family member struck as a pedestrian. Personal injury protection coverage is not an option in every state and may carry a deductible
Liability – Liability coverage protects you from damages or injuries you inflict on people or other property in an accident. This insurance protects YOU against other people’s claims. It does not cover damage sustained by your vehicle in an accident.
It consists of three limits, per person bodily injury, per accident bodily injury, and a property damage limit. Your policy might show policy limits of 25/50/25 that means you have $25,000 bodily injury coverage, $50,000 for the entire accident, and a limit of $25,000 paid for damaged property. Another option is one limit called combined single limit (CSL) which limits claims to one amount and claims can be made without the split limit restrictions.
Liability coverage protects against things such as medical services, structural damage and funeral expenses. How much coverage you buy is up to you, but you should buy as much as you can afford.
Collision – This will pay to fix damage to your Aerostar caused by collision with another vehicle or an object, but not an animal. You have to pay a deductible and the rest of the damage will be paid by collision coverage.
Collision insurance covers claims like damaging your car on a curb, rolling your car, crashing into a building and hitting a mailbox. Paying for collision coverage can be pricey, so consider removing coverage from older vehicles. You can also raise the deductible to save money on collision insurance.
