The coverage is in the details

Having a good grasp of auto insurance aids in choosing the best coverages for your vehicles. The coverage terms in a policy can be difficult to understand and coverage can change by endorsement. Listed below are typical coverage types found on most auto insurance policies.

Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist (UM/UIM)

This gives you protection from other motorists when they do not carry enough liability coverage. It can pay for injuries to you and your family as well as damage to your Pontiac G5.

Due to the fact that many drivers only purchase the least amount of liability that is required, it doesn’t take a major accident to exceed their coverage limits. That’s why carrying high Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist coverage is a good idea. Frequently these coverages are set the same as your liablity limits.

Liability insurance

Liability insurance will cover damage that occurs to other people or property in an accident. It protects you from claims by other people. Liability doesn’t cover damage to your own property or vehicle.

It consists of three limits, bodily injury per person, bodily injury per accident and property damage. As an example, you may have limits of 100/300/100 which means a limit of $100,000 per injured person, a total of $300,000 of bodily injury coverage per accident, and property damage coverage for $100,000. Alternatively, you may have one number which is a combined single limit which provides one coverage limit rather than limiting it on a per person basis.

Liability can pay for things like court costs, emergency aid and repair costs for stationary objects. The amount of liability coverage you purchase is a decision to put some thought into, but it’s cheap coverage so purchase as large an amount as possible.

Comprehensive insurance

This will pay to fix damage from a wide range of events other than collision. You first have to pay a deductible and the remainder of the damage will be paid by comprehensive coverage.

Comprehensive can pay for claims such as hitting a deer, hitting a bird, vandalism and damage from a tornado or hurricane. The highest amount a auto insurance company will pay at claim time is the actual cash value, so if the vehicle is not worth much it’s not worth carrying full coverage.

Med pay and Personal Injury Protection (PIP)

Personal Injury Protection (PIP) and medical payments coverage provide coverage for bills like nursing services, rehabilitation expenses, pain medications and prosthetic devices. They are used in conjunction with a health insurance program or if you do not have health coverage. They cover all vehicle occupants in addition to being hit by a car walking across the street. PIP is only offered in select states but it provides additional coverages not offered by medical payments coverage

Collision coverage

This coverage covers damage to your G5 resulting from colliding with an object or car. A deductible applies and the rest of the damage will be paid by collision coverage.

Collision coverage protects against things like hitting a mailbox, backing into a parked car, hitting a parking meter and sideswiping another vehicle. Collision is rather expensive coverage, so consider removing coverage from vehicles that are 8 years or older. Drivers also have the option to increase the deductible to save money on collision insurance.
