Collision insurance pays for damage to your Expedition caused by collision with another car or object. You have to pay a deductible then the remaining damage will be paid by your insurance company.
Collision insurance covers claims like rolling your car, colliding with a tree and hitting a mailbox. Paying for collision coverage can be pricey, so you might think about dropping it from older vehicles. You can also raise the deductible to get cheaper collision coverage.
Comprehensive auto coverage
This coverage covers damage from a wide range of events other than collision. A deductible will apply then the remaining damage will be covered by your comprehensive coverage.
Comprehensive coverage pays for things like a broken windshield, hail damage, damage from a tornado or hurricane, vandalism and fire damage. The highest amount you’ll receive from a claim is the ACV or actual cash value, so if it’s not worth much more than your deductible it’s probably time to drop comprehensive insurance.
Medical payments and PIP coverage
Personal Injury Protection (PIP) and medical payments coverage provide coverage for expenses like X-ray expenses, surgery, hospital visits, EMT expenses and pain medications. They can be utilized in addition to your health insurance plan or if there is no health insurance coverage. They cover not only the driver but also the vehicle occupants as well as being hit by a car walking across the street. PIP is not an option in every state and may carry a deductible
This coverage will cover damages or injuries you inflict on a person or their property in an accident. This insurance protects YOU from legal claims by others. It does not cover 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. Your policy might show values of 50/100/50 that means you have $50,000 bodily injury coverage, a total of $100,000 of bodily injury coverage per accident, and $50,000 of coverage for damaged propery.
Liability insurance covers things such as bail bonds, repair costs for stationary objects and pain and suffering. How much coverage you buy is a personal decision, but you should buy as much as you can afford.
UM/UIM (Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist) coverage
Uninsured or Underinsured Motorist coverage protects you and your vehicle’s occupants when other motorists do not carry enough liability coverage. Covered claims include hospital bills for your injuries as well as damage to your Ford Expedition.
Since a lot of drivers only carry the minimum required liability limits, it only takes a small accident to exceed their coverage. This is the reason having UM/UIM coverage is important protection for you and your family.
