Medical costs insurance
Medical payments and Personal Injury Protection insurance provide coverage for bills for hospital visits, pain medications, nursing services and EMT expenses. They are used to cover expenses not covered by your health insurance plan or if there is no health insurance coverage. Coverage applies to all vehicle occupants and will also cover any family member struck as a pedestrian. PIP is only offered in select states but it provides additional coverages not offered by medical payments coverage
Your UM/UIM coverage protects you and your vehicle when other motorists are uninsured or don’t have enough coverage. This coverage pays for injuries to you and your family and damage to your Mazda MX-5 Miata.
Since a lot of drivers have only the minimum liability required by law, their liability coverage can quickly be exhausted. That’s why carrying high Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist coverage is a good idea.
Collision insurance will pay to fix damage to your MX-5 Miata from colliding with another vehicle or an object, but not an animal. You will need to pay your deductible and the rest of the damage will be paid by collision coverage.
Collision can pay for things like scraping a guard rail, driving through your garage door and sustaining damage from a pot hole. Collision is rather expensive coverage, so analyze the benefit of dropping coverage from older vehicles. It’s also possible to bump up the deductible in order to get cheaper collision rates.
This will cover injuries or damage you cause to other people or property that is your fault. It protects you from legal claims by others. It does not cover your injuries or vehicle damage.
Coverage consists of three different limits, bodily injury for each person, bodily injury for the entire accident, and a limit for property damage. As an example, you may have liability limits of 100/300/100 which stand for $100,000 bodily injury coverage, a total of $300,000 of bodily injury coverage per accident, and a total limit of $100,000 for damage to vehicles and property.
Liability coverage protects against claims such as court costs, structural damage, emergency aid, medical services and loss of income. The amount of liability coverage you purchase is your choice, but it’s cheap coverage so purchase as much as you can afford.
Comprehensive or Other Than Collision
Comprehensive insurance covers damage OTHER than collision with another vehicle or object. You need to pay your deductible first then the remaining damage will be covered by your comprehensive coverage.
Comprehensive can pay for things like theft, a tree branch falling on your vehicle, hitting a bird, a broken windshield and vandalism. The maximum payout a insurance company will pay at claim time is the ACV or actual cash value, so if it’s not worth much more than your deductible it’s probably time to drop comprehensive insurance.
