Medical costs insurance – Coverage for medical payments and/or PIP pay for immediate expenses like chiropractic care, dental work, ambulance fees, nursing services and rehabilitation expenses. They are often utilized in addition to your health insurance policy or if you lack health insurance entirely. They cover all vehicle occupants in addition to getting struck while a pedestrian. Personal Injury Protection is not universally available and gives slightly broader coverage than med pay
UM/UIM Coverage – This protects you and your vehicle’s occupants from other drivers when they either have no liability insurance or not enough. Covered losses include medical payments for you and your occupants and also any damage incurred to your Saturn Aura.
Due to the fact that many drivers only carry the minimum required liability limits, it only takes a small accident to exceed their coverage. So UM/UIM coverage is important protection for you and your family.
Collision – This coverage covers damage to your Aura resulting from a collision with an object or car. A deductible applies then your collision coverage will kick in.
Collision insurance covers claims such as crashing into a building, colliding with another moving vehicle and hitting a mailbox. Collision coverage makes up a good portion of your premium, so consider dropping it from older vehicles. You can also increase the deductible to bring the cost down.
Comprehensive or Other Than Collision – Comprehensive insurance covers damage that is not covered by collision coverage. You first must pay your deductible then your comprehensive coverage will pay.
Comprehensive coverage pays for things such as hitting a deer, damage from a tornado or hurricane and a tree branch falling on your vehicle. The most your insurance company will pay is the cash value of the vehicle, so if your deductible is as high as the vehicle’s value consider removing comprehensive coverage.
Liability – This will cover injuries or damage you cause to people or other property. This coverage protects you against other people’s claims, and does not provide coverage for your injuries or vehicle damage.
Liability coverage has three limits: bodily injury for each person, bodily injury for the entire accident, and a limit for property damage. As an example, you may have liability limits of 50/100/50 which stand for a $50,000 limit per person for 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 loss of income, medical expenses and court costs. How much liability should you purchase? That is your choice, but it’s cheap coverage so purchase higher limits if possible.
When shopping online for car insurance, never reduce needed coverages to save money. There are a lot of situations where drivers have reduced uninsured motorist or liability limits only to regret at claim time that the small savings ended up costing them much more. The ultimate goal is to find the BEST coverage at an affordable rate, not the least amount of coverage.
Consumers switch companies for many reasons like high prices, extreme rates for teen drivers, delays in responding to claim requests and not issuing a premium refund. Regardless of your reason for switching companies, finding the right car insurance provider is pretty simple and you could end up saving a buck or two.
