Coverage for medical expenses – Medical payments and Personal Injury Protection insurance provide coverage for immediate expenses such as rehabilitation expenses, doctor visits and prosthetic devices. The coverages can be utilized in addition to your health insurance program or if you are not covered by health insurance. It covers you and your occupants in addition to any family member struck as a pedestrian. PIP is not universally available but can be used in place of medical payments coverage
Liability car insurance – This coverage can cover damage or injury you incur to other people or property. It protects you against other people’s claims. It does not cover damage to your own property or vehicle.
Liability coverage has three limits: bodily injury per person, bodily injury per accident and property damage. You commonly see values of 50/100/50 which means $50,000 bodily injury coverage, a per accident bodily injury limit of $100,000, and $50,000 of coverage for damaged propery. Alternatively, you may have a combined limit that pays claims from the same limit and claims can be made without the split limit restrictions.
Liability coverage pays for claims like repair costs for stationary objects, medical services and bail bonds. The amount of liability coverage you purchase is a decision to put some thought into, but consider buying as much as you can afford.
Comprehensive car insurance – Comprehensive insurance coverage will pay to fix damage caused by mother nature, theft, vandalism and other events. You need to pay your deductible first and then insurance will cover the rest of the damage.
Comprehensive coverage pays for claims such as damage from getting keyed, hail damage and rock chips in glass. The maximum amount your car insurance company will pay is the market value of your vehicle, so if the vehicle is not worth much consider dropping full coverage.
Collision coverages – This will pay to fix damage to your Sable resulting from a collision with another vehicle or an object, but not an animal. You will need to pay your deductible then your collision coverage will kick in.
Collision coverage protects against things such as hitting a parking meter, sideswiping another vehicle, backing into a parked car and rolling your car. This coverage can be expensive, so analyze the benefit of dropping coverage from lower value vehicles. Drivers also have the option to bump up the deductible in order to get cheaper collision rates.
Coverage for uninsured or underinsured drivers – Your UM/UIM coverage protects you and your vehicle’s occupants when the “other guys” either have no liability insurance or not enough. It can pay for injuries to you and your family and also any damage incurred to your Mercury Sable.
Because many people only carry the minimum required liability limits, their limits can quickly be used up. That’s why carrying high Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist coverage is very important. Most of the time the UM/UIM limits do not exceed the liability coverage limits.
While you’re price shopping online, you should never buy poor coverage just to save money. In many instances, an accident victim reduced physical damage coverage and found out when filing a claim that the savings was not a smart move. Your strategy should be to buy the best coverage you can find for the lowest price while still protecting your assets.
