Having a good grasp of insurance can be of help when determining which coverages you need at the best deductibles and correct limits. Policy terminology can be ambiguous and nobody wants to actually read their policy. Listed below are typical coverage types offered by insurance companies.
Personal Injury Protection (PIP) and medical payments coverage provide coverage for short-term medical expenses for things like X-ray expenses, surgery and ambulance fees. They can be used to cover expenses not covered by your health insurance policy or if you are not covered by health insurance. Medical payments and PIP cover you and your occupants and will also cover being hit by a car walking across the street. PIP is not available in all states and may carry a deductible
This coverage protects you from injuries or damage you cause to a person or their property that is your fault. This coverage protects you against other people’s claims, and doesn’t cover damage to your own property or vehicle.
Coverage consists of three different limits, bodily injury per person, bodily injury per accident and property damage. As an example, you may have values of 25/50/25 that means you have $25,000 in coverage for each person’s injuries, $50,000 for the entire accident, and $25,000 of coverage for damaged propery. Occasionally you may see one limit called combined single limit (CSL) which combines the three limits into one amount and claims can be made without the split limit restrictions.
Liability coverage protects against claims such as legal defense fees, pain and suffering, repair bills for other people’s vehicles and loss of income. How much liability should you purchase? That is a decision to put some thought into, but it’s cheap coverage so purchase as high a limit as you can afford.
Comprehensive insurance will pay to fix damage OTHER than collision with another vehicle or object. A deductible will apply and then insurance will cover the rest of the damage.
Comprehensive insurance covers claims such as theft, hitting a bird, vandalism, rock chips in glass and falling objects. The maximum payout you’ll receive from a claim is the market value of your vehicle, so if the vehicle is not worth much consider dropping full coverage.
Uninsured or Underinsured Motorist coverage protects you and your vehicle’s occupants when other motorists either are underinsured or have no liability coverage at all. Covered losses include hospital bills for your injuries as well as your vehicle’s damage.
Since many drivers only carry the minimum required liability limits, their liability coverage can quickly be exhausted. This is the reason having UM/UIM coverage is a good idea. Usually the UM/UIM limits are identical to your policy’s liability coverage.
This pays for damage to your RX-8 from colliding with another car or object. You have to pay a deductible and then insurance will cover the remainder.
Collision can pay for claims such as hitting a mailbox, scraping a guard rail and backing into a parked car. Collision coverage makes up a good portion of your premium, so consider dropping it from older vehicles. It’s also possible to raise the deductible to bring the cost down.
