Auto insurance coverage information

Knowing the specifics of car insurance can be of help when determining the right coverages at the best deductibles and correct limits. The coverage terms in a policy can be ambiguous and coverage can change by endorsement. Listed below are typical coverages available from car insurance companies.

Coverage for uninsured or underinsured drivers – Uninsured or Underinsured Motorist coverage protects you and your vehicle from other drivers when they do not carry enough liability coverage. Covered losses include injuries to you and your family as well as damage to your Volkswagen Jetta.

Since many drivers have only the minimum liability required by law, their limits can quickly be used up. That’s why carrying high Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist coverage is very important.

Comprehensive car insurance – This covers damage from a wide range of events other than collision. A deductible will apply and then insurance will cover the rest of the damage.

Comprehensive coverage protects against claims like fire damage, damage from flooding and damage from a tornado or hurricane. The maximum amount you’ll receive from a claim is the cash value of the vehicle, so if the vehicle’s value is low consider dropping full coverage.

Coverage for medical expenses – Coverage for medical payments and/or PIP pay for expenses for things like X-ray expenses, doctor visits, rehabilitation expenses and surgery. The coverages can be utilized in addition to your health insurance policy or if you are not covered by health insurance. Medical payments and PIP cover both the driver and occupants and also covers getting struck while a pedestrian. Personal Injury Protection is not an option in every state but can be used in place of medical payments coverage

Auto liability – This can cover damages or injuries you inflict on other people or property in an accident. This insurance protects YOU against claims from other people, 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 liability limits of 50/100/50 that means you have a $50,000 limit per person for injuries, a per accident bodily injury limit of $100,000, and a total limit of $50,000 for damage to vehicles and property.

Liability can pay for things such as pain and suffering, structural damage, attorney fees and funeral expenses. How much coverage you buy is a personal decision, but consider buying higher limits if possible.

Collision coverage – This coverage covers damage to your Jetta caused by collision with an object or car. You have to pay a deductible then the remaining damage will be paid by your insurance company.

Collision coverage pays for things such as hitting a parking meter, sideswiping another vehicle, backing into a parked car, driving through your garage door and hitting a mailbox. This coverage can be expensive, so consider dropping it from vehicles that are older. Another option is to raise the deductible to bring the cost down.
