Having a good grasp of your car insurance policy helps when choosing the best coverages for your vehicles. Policy terminology can be confusing and nobody wants to actually read their policy.
Protection from uninsured/underinsured drivers
Your UM/UIM coverage provides protection from other drivers when they 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 carry very low liability coverage limits, their liability coverage can quickly be exhausted. This is the reason having UM/UIM coverage is a good idea.
Auto liability insurance
This will cover injuries or damage you cause to other’s property or people in an accident. This insurance protects YOU against other people’s claims, and doesn’t 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. You might see liability limits of 50/100/50 which stand for $50,000 in coverage for each person’s injuries, a total of $100,000 of bodily injury coverage per accident, and a total limit of $50,000 for damage to vehicles and property.
Liability coverage protects against claims such as legal defense fees, medical services, medical expenses, loss of income and repair costs for stationary objects. How much coverage you buy is your choice, but buy as high a limit as you can afford.
Collision insurance pays for damage to your G3 caused by collision with another car or object. You first must pay a deductible then the remaining damage will be paid by your insurance company.
Collision can pay for things such as scraping a guard rail, hitting a mailbox and rolling your car. This coverage can be expensive, so consider dropping it from older vehicles. It’s also possible to choose a higher deductible to bring the cost down.
Medical expense insurance
Personal Injury Protection (PIP) and medical payments coverage kick in for expenses like ambulance fees, nursing services and dental work. The coverages can be used in conjunction with a health insurance policy or if there is no health insurance coverage. They cover all vehicle occupants as well as being hit by a car walking across the street. PIP coverage is not an option in every state but can be used in place of medical payments coverage
Comprehensive (Other than Collision)
Comprehensive insurance will pay to fix damage from a wide range of events other than collision. You first must pay your deductible then the remaining damage will be covered by your comprehensive coverage.
Comprehensive coverage pays for claims like damage from flooding, hitting a bird, a tree branch falling on your vehicle and hail damage. The maximum amount a car insurance company will pay at claim time is the ACV or actual cash value, so if the vehicle’s value is low it’s probably time to drop comprehensive insurance.
