Understanding the coverages of your insurance policy can help you determine the best coverages at the best deductibles and correct limits. Policy terminology can be impossible to understand and even agents have difficulty translating policy wording.
Comprehensive protection – This will pay to fix damage that is not covered by collision coverage. You first must pay your deductible then your comprehensive coverage will pay.
Comprehensive coverage protects against claims like rock chips in glass, hitting a deer and damage from a tornado or hurricane. The highest amount a insurance company will pay at claim time is the ACV or actual cash value, so if the vehicle’s value is low consider removing comprehensive coverage.
Uninsured or underinsured coverage – Uninsured or Underinsured Motorist coverage protects you and your vehicle’s occupants from other drivers when they either are underinsured or have no liability coverage at all. Covered claims include hospital bills for your injuries as well as your vehicle’s damage.
Since a lot of drivers only carry the minimum required liability limits, their limits can quickly be used up. This is the reason having UM/UIM coverage is very important. Usually the UM/UIM limits are identical to your policy’s liability coverage.
Coverage for liability – Liability insurance will cover damage or injury you incur to people or other property that is your fault. It protects YOU against claims from other people. It does not cover your injuries or vehicle damage.
Coverage consists of three different limits, bodily injury for each person, bodily injury for the entire accident, and a limit for property damage. As an example, you may have limits of 100/300/100 which means $100,000 bodily injury coverage, a total of $300,000 of bodily injury coverage per accident, and property damage coverage for $100,000. Some companies may use one number which is a combined single limit that pays claims from the same limit with no separate limits for injury or property damage.
Liability insurance covers claims like medical services, court costs, pain and suffering and legal defense fees. How much liability coverage do you need? That is your choice, but it’s cheap coverage so purchase as much as you can afford.
Medical expense coverage – Personal Injury Protection (PIP) and medical payments coverage pay for short-term medical expenses such as rehabilitation expenses, ambulance fees, doctor visits, hospital visits and pain medications. They can be used to fill the gap from your health insurance plan or if there is no health insurance coverage. It covers not only the driver but also the vehicle occupants and will also cover being hit by a car walking across the street. Personal Injury Protection is not available in all states and may carry a deductible
Collision coverage – Collision insurance will pay to fix damage to your Range Rover Sport caused by collision with another vehicle or an object, but not an animal. You have to pay a deductible then your collision coverage will kick in.
Collision coverage protects against things such as rolling your car, driving through your garage door, sustaining damage from a pot hole, sideswiping another vehicle and crashing into a building. This coverage can be expensive, so consider dropping it from vehicles that are older. Drivers also have the option to raise the deductible to bring the cost down.
