Knowing the specifics of auto insurance can help you determine which coverages you need and proper limits and deductibles. The coverage terms in a policy can be ambiguous and nobody wants to actually read their policy. These are typical coverages offered by auto insurance companies.
Comprehensive coverage – This coverage covers damage from a wide range of events other than collision. You first must pay your deductible then your comprehensive coverage will pay.
Comprehensive coverage protects against things like theft, damage from getting keyed, rock chips in glass and hail damage. The maximum amount a auto insurance company will pay at claim time is the market value of your vehicle, so if it’s not worth much more than your deductible consider removing comprehensive coverage.
Collision coverage – This coverage will pay to fix damage to your MX-5 Miata resulting from colliding with another vehicle or an object, but not an animal. You have to pay a deductible then the remaining damage will be paid by your insurance company.
Collision coverage protects against things such as rolling your car, sideswiping another vehicle and colliding with another moving vehicle. This coverage can be expensive, so analyze the benefit of dropping coverage from vehicles that are 8 years or older. Drivers also have the option to raise the deductible in order to get cheaper collision rates.
Medical payments coverage and PIP – Medical payments and Personal Injury Protection insurance kick in for short-term medical expenses such as prosthetic devices, surgery, pain medications and dental work. They can be utilized in addition to your health insurance plan or if you do not have health coverage. It covers both the driver and occupants and will also cover any family member struck as a pedestrian. PIP coverage is not available in all states and may carry a deductible
Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist coverage – Uninsured or Underinsured Motorist coverage gives you protection from other motorists when they either are underinsured or have no liability coverage at all. Covered claims include medical payments for you and your occupants as well as your vehicle’s damage.
Because many people only purchase the least amount of liability that is required, their liability coverage can quickly be exhausted. So UM/UIM coverage is important protection for you and your family.
Liability coverages – Liability insurance will cover injuries or damage you cause to a person or their property in an accident. It protects YOU from claims by other people. It does not cover your injuries or vehicle damage.
It consists of three limits, bodily injury for each person, bodily injury for the entire accident, and a limit for property damage. Your policy might show limits of 25/50/25 which stand for $25,000 bodily injury coverage, a total of $50,000 of bodily injury coverage per accident, and property damage coverage for $25,000.
Liability insurance covers claims such as repair bills for other people’s vehicles, attorney fees and emergency aid. How much liability coverage do you need? That is your choice, but you should buy as much as you can afford.
When shopping online for insurance coverage, it’s a bad idea to buy less coverage just to save a little money. In many cases, an insured dropped physical damage coverage only to regret at claim time they didn’t have enough coverage. The ultimate goal is to buy the best coverage you can find at the best price while still protecting your assets.
