Educate yourself about auto insurance coverages

Having a good grasp of your policy can be of help when determining the best coverages and proper limits and deductibles. The coverage terms in a policy can be difficult to understand and coverage can change by endorsement. Shown next are typical coverage types found on most auto insurance policies.

Uninsured Motorist or Underinsured Motorist insurance

This coverage provides protection from other motorists when they either have no liability insurance or not enough. Covered claims include medical payments for you and your occupants and also any damage incurred to your Saab 9-5.

Since a lot of drivers carry very low liability coverage limits, their liability coverage can quickly be exhausted. So UM/UIM coverage is very important.

Insurance for medical payments

Medical payments and Personal Injury Protection insurance provide coverage for short-term medical expenses such as chiropractic care, surgery and ambulance fees. They can be utilized in addition to your health insurance program or if you do not have health coverage. It covers both the driver and occupants in addition to any family member struck as a pedestrian. PIP is not available in all states and may carry a deductible

Liability car insurance

This protects you from damage or injury you incur to other’s property or people by causing an accident. This insurance protects YOU from legal claims by others, and doesn’t cover damage to your own property or vehicle.

Split limit liability has three limits of coverage: bodily injury per person, bodily injury per accident and property damage. You might see liability limits of 25/50/25 that means you have $25,000 in coverage for each person’s injuries, $50,000 for the entire accident, and a total limit of $25,000 for damage to vehicles and property.

Liability coverage protects against claims like bail bonds, attorney fees, pain and suffering and funeral expenses. How much coverage you buy is a decision to put some thought into, but buy as high a limit as you can afford.

Collision coverage

This coverage pays to fix your vehicle from damage caused by collision with a stationary object or other vehicle. You have to pay a deductible and the rest of the damage will be paid by collision coverage.

Collision coverage protects against claims such as sideswiping another vehicle, sustaining damage from a pot hole, damaging your car on a curb and hitting a parking meter. Collision coverage makes up a good portion of your premium, so analyze the benefit of dropping coverage from lower value vehicles. Drivers also have the option to raise the deductible in order to get cheaper collision rates.

Comprehensive coverage (or Other than Collision)

This coverage will pay to fix damage that is not covered by collision coverage. You need to pay your deductible first and then insurance will cover the rest of the damage.

Comprehensive can pay for things such as falling objects, damage from flooding, a tree branch falling on your vehicle, damage from a tornado or hurricane and damage from getting keyed. The maximum payout your auto insurance company will pay is the actual cash value, so if your deductible is as high as the vehicle’s value consider dropping full coverage.
