Having a good grasp of your insurance policy aids in choosing the best coverages and proper limits and deductibles. Policy terminology can be ambiguous and even agents have difficulty translating policy wording. Below you’ll find typical coverage types found on most insurance policies.
Protection from uninsured/underinsured drivers
This coverage protects you and your vehicle from other motorists when they either are underinsured or have no liability coverage at all. Covered losses include medical payments for you and your occupants as well as your vehicle’s damage.
Due to the fact that many drivers have only the minimum liability required by law, their liability coverage can quickly be exhausted. So UM/UIM coverage is important protection for you and your family.
Collision insurance covers damage to your Pickup resulting from colliding with an object or car. A deductible applies then your collision coverage will kick in.
Collision coverage protects against things such as backing into a parked car, damaging your car on a curb, driving through your garage door and hitting a mailbox. This coverage can be expensive, so consider removing coverage from vehicles that are older. Drivers also have the option to increase the deductible to save money on collision insurance.
Comprehensive (Other than Collision)
This pays to fix your vehicle from damage that is not covered by collision coverage. You first must pay your deductible then your comprehensive coverage will pay.
Comprehensive insurance covers things such as fire damage, damage from flooding, a tree branch falling on your vehicle, hail damage and vandalism. The maximum payout your insurance company will pay is the market value of your vehicle, so if your deductible is as high as the vehicle’s value consider removing comprehensive coverage.
Liability car insurance
This protects you from damage or injury you incur to people or other property by causing an accident. Split limit liability has three limits of coverage: bodily injury for each person, bodily injury for the entire accident, and a limit for property damage. You might see liability limits of 25/50/25 which stand for $25,000 bodily injury coverage, $50,000 for the entire accident, and a total limit of $25,000 for damage to vehicles and property.
Liability insurance covers claims like repair costs for stationary objects, structural damage and pain and suffering. How much liability should you purchase? That is your choice, but buy as much as you can afford.
Medical expense insurance
Coverage for medical payments and/or PIP pay for expenses like ambulance fees, chiropractic care, funeral costs and nursing services. They are used to fill the gap from your health insurance policy or if you are not covered by health insurance. They cover both the driver and occupants and also covers getting struck while a pedestrian. Personal Injury Protection is not an option in every state but it provides additional coverages not offered by medical payments coverage
