Understanding the coverages of your insurance policy helps when choosing which coverages you need and the correct deductibles and limits. Insurance terms can be ambiguous and reading a policy is terribly boring.
Liability car insurance
This protects you from damages or injuries you inflict on people or other property by causing an accident. It protects YOU from legal claims by others, and doesn’t 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. Your policy might show liability limits of 50/100/50 which stand for $50,000 in coverage for each person’s injuries, $100,000 for the entire accident, and a total limit of $50,000 for damage to vehicles and property. Some companies may use one limit called combined single limit (CSL) which limits claims to one amount without having the split limit caps.
Liability coverage protects against things such as repair bills for other people’s vehicles, funeral expenses, medical expenses, legal defense fees and pain and suffering. How much liability coverage do you need? That is up to you, but you should buy as high a limit as you can afford.
UM/UIM (Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist) coverage
This protects you and your vehicle’s occupants from other drivers when they either have no liability insurance or not enough. It can pay for medical payments for you and your occupants and also any damage incurred to your Toyota T100.
Since many drivers only carry the minimum required liability limits, it only takes a small accident to exceed their coverage. So UM/UIM coverage should not be overlooked. Frequently the UM/UIM limits do not exceed the liability coverage limits.
Medical payments and PIP coverage
Med pay and PIP coverage provide coverage for expenses such as chiropractic care, rehabilitation expenses and hospital visits. The coverages can be used to fill the gap from your health insurance policy or if you are not covered by health insurance. It covers both the driver and occupants in addition to if you are hit as a while walking down the street. PIP is not an option in every state but can be used in place of medical payments coverage
Comprehensive auto coverage
Comprehensive insurance coverage covers damage from a wide range of events other than collision. A deductible will apply then your comprehensive coverage will pay.
Comprehensive coverage protects against things such as damage from flooding, a broken windshield and hitting a bird. The maximum amount a insurance company will pay at claim time is the ACV or actual cash value, so if your deductible is as high as the vehicle’s value consider removing comprehensive coverage.
This coverage pays to fix your vehicle from damage from colliding with a stationary object or other vehicle. You first must pay a deductible and the rest of the damage will be paid by collision coverage.
Collision coverage protects against things such as crashing into a building, sideswiping another vehicle, driving through your garage door, damaging your car on a curb and colliding with another moving vehicle. This coverage can be expensive, so consider removing coverage from lower value vehicles. Drivers also have the option to choose a higher deductible to save money on collision insurance.
