Knowing the specifics of a insurance policy aids in choosing which coverages you need and the correct deductibles and limits. Policy terminology can be difficult to understand and reading a policy is terribly boring.
Liability insurance provides protection from damage or injury you incur to other’s property or people in an accident. It protects you against other people’s claims, and does not provide coverage for your own vehicle damage or injuries.
It consists of three limits, bodily injury for each person injured, bodily injury for the entire accident and a property damage limit. You commonly see limits of 50/100/50 which means a $50,000 limit per person for injuries, a limit of $100,000 in injury protection per accident, and property damage coverage for $50,000.
Liability coverage pays for claims like funeral expenses, court costs, medical expenses and bail bonds. The amount of liability coverage you purchase is a personal decision, but consider buying higher limits if possible.
Medical payments and Personal Injury Protection insurance pay for bills for things like funeral costs, nursing services and prosthetic devices. They are used in conjunction with a health insurance plan or if you lack health insurance entirely. Medical payments and PIP cover all vehicle occupants and will also cover any family member struck as a pedestrian. Personal Injury Protection is only offered in select states but it provides additional coverages not offered by medical payments coverage
This covers damage caused by mother nature, theft, vandalism and other events. You first must pay your deductible and the remainder of the damage will be paid by comprehensive coverage.
Comprehensive can pay for claims such as hitting a deer, theft and damage from flooding. The most you’ll receive from a claim is the actual cash value, so if the vehicle is not worth much it’s not worth carrying full coverage.
Collision coverage covers damage to your Jimmy resulting from a collision with an object or car. You will need to pay your deductible then the remaining damage will be paid by your insurance company.
Collision coverage protects against claims such as crashing into a building, driving through your garage door, sustaining damage from a pot hole and sideswiping another vehicle. Collision coverage makes up a good portion of your premium, so you might think about dropping it from lower value vehicles. Drivers also have the option to bump up the deductible to get cheaper collision coverage.
This coverage protects you and your vehicle from other motorists when they do not carry enough liability coverage. Covered claims include injuries to you and your family as well as damage to your 2001 GMC Jimmy.
Since a lot of drivers have only the minimum liability required by law, it doesn’t take a major accident to exceed their coverage limits. That’s why carrying high Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist coverage should not be overlooked.
