They are utilized in addition to your health insurance plan or if you do not have health coverage. They cover you and your occupants in addition to getting struck while a pedestrian. PIP coverage is not universally available but it provides additional coverages not offered by medical payments coverage
Liability insurance can cover damages or injuries you inflict on other people or property by causing an accident. It protects you from claims by other people. Liability doesn’t cover your own vehicle damage or injuries.
Split limit liability has three limits of coverage: bodily injury for each person injured, bodily injury for the entire accident and a property damage limit. You commonly see limits of 25/50/25 that means you have a limit of $25,000 per injured person, a per accident bodily injury limit of $50,000, and property damage coverage for $25,000. Alternatively, you may have a combined limit which limits claims to one amount rather than limiting it on a per person basis.
Liability insurance covers things such as bail bonds, funeral expenses and loss of income. The amount of liability coverage you purchase is a personal decision, but consider buying as large an amount as possible.
Collision coverage pays for damage to your Blazer caused by collision with another car or object. You will need to pay your deductible and the rest of the damage will be paid by collision coverage.
Collision insurance covers claims like colliding with another moving vehicle, colliding with a tree, backing into a parked car, hitting a mailbox and driving through your garage door. Paying for collision coverage can be pricey, so consider dropping it from vehicles that are 8 years or older. You can also bump up the deductible to bring the cost down.
Uninsured or Underinsured Motorist coverage protects you and your vehicle’s occupants from other drivers when they do not carry enough liability coverage. This coverage pays for hospital bills for your injuries as well as damage to your 2004 Chevy Blazer.
Because many people only carry the minimum required liability limits, it doesn’t take a major accident to exceed their coverage limits. This is the reason having UM/UIM coverage is important protection for you and your family. Usually the UM/UIM limits are set the same as your liablity limits.
This pays to fix your vehicle from damage that is not covered by collision coverage. You first have to pay a deductible then your comprehensive coverage will pay.
Comprehensive coverage pays for things such as damage from flooding, theft, hitting a deer, hitting a bird and damage from getting keyed. The highest amount a auto 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.
