Understanding the coverages of your policy can help you determine appropriate coverage for your vehicles. Insurance terms can be confusing and reading a policy is terribly boring. Shown next are the normal coverages found on the average insurance policy.
Collision coverage will pay to fix damage to your XJ-Series resulting from colliding with another vehicle or an object, but not an animal. You first must pay a deductible then your collision coverage will kick in.
Collision insurance covers claims like backing into a parked car, crashing into a ditch and hitting a mailbox. Paying for collision coverage can be pricey, so analyze the benefit of dropping coverage from vehicles that are 8 years or older. You can also choose a higher deductible in order to get cheaper collision rates.
Liability coverage can cover damage that occurs to other’s property or people by causing an accident. This coverage protects you from claims by other people. Liability 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. You commonly see policy limits of 50/100/50 which stand for a limit of $50,000 per injured person, a per accident bodily injury limit of $100,000, and a limit of $50,000 paid for damaged property. Occasionally you may see a combined limit which provides one coverage limit rather than limiting it on a per person basis.
Liability coverage protects against things like funeral expenses, medical expenses, attorney fees and pain and suffering. How much liability should you purchase? That is up to you, but consider buying as large an amount as possible.
Comprehensive insurance pays for damage that is not covered by collision coverage. You first have to pay a deductible and the remainder of the damage will be paid by comprehensive coverage.
Comprehensive insurance covers things like hail damage, hitting a deer, damage from flooding and falling objects. The maximum payout you can receive from a comprehensive claim is the market value of your vehicle, so if it’s not worth much more than your deductible it’s not worth carrying full coverage.
Uninsured or Underinsured Motorist coverage protects you and your vehicle when other motorists either have no liability insurance or not enough. Covered claims include medical payments for you and your occupants and also any damage incurred to your 2004 Jaguar XJ-Series.
Due to the fact that many drivers have only the minimum liability required by law, their limits can quickly be used up. So UM/UIM coverage is a good idea. Usually your uninsured/underinsured motorist coverages do not exceed the liability coverage limits.
Medical payments and Personal Injury Protection insurance kick in for short-term medical expenses for things like prosthetic devices, X-ray expenses, doctor visits, surgery and hospital visits. They are often utilized in addition to your health insurance policy or if there is no health insurance coverage. Medical payments and PIP cover you and your occupants as well as any family member struck as a pedestrian. PIP coverage is not available in all states and gives slightly broader coverage than med pay
