Learning about specific coverages of a auto insurance policy aids in choosing which coverages you need and the correct deductibles and limits. The terms used in a policy can be ambiguous and reading a policy is terribly boring. Shown next are the usual coverages found on most auto insurance policies.
Medical payments and PIP coverage
Coverage for medical payments and/or PIP provide coverage for expenses for things like doctor visits, dental work, X-ray expenses, prosthetic devices and funeral costs. The coverages can be utilized in addition to your health insurance policy or if there is no health insurance coverage. Medical payments and PIP cover all vehicle occupants and will also cover getting struck while a pedestrian. PIP is not an option in every state but can be used in place of medical payments coverage
Comprehensive auto coverage
Comprehensive insurance covers damage OTHER than collision with another vehicle or object. You need to pay your deductible first and the remainder of the damage will be paid by comprehensive coverage.
Comprehensive insurance covers claims such as vandalism, damage from flooding and damage from a tornado or hurricane. The maximum payout you’ll receive from a claim is the ACV or actual cash value, so if the vehicle is not worth much it’s not worth carrying full coverage.
This will pay to fix damage to your TL from colliding with another vehicle or an object, but not an animal. You first must pay a deductible then your collision coverage will kick in.
Collision coverage pays for claims such as damaging your car on a curb, crashing into a building, hitting a parking meter, driving through your garage door and backing into a parked car. Collision coverage makes up a good portion of your premium, so consider removing coverage from vehicles that are 8 years or older. Another option is to choose a higher deductible to save money on collision insurance.
Liability insurance provides protection from damages or injuries you inflict on a person or their 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. Your policy might show limits of 50/100/50 which stand for $50,000 bodily injury coverage, a limit of $100,000 in injury protection per accident, and property damage coverage for $50,000. Some companies may use a combined single limit or CSL which limits claims to one amount with no separate limits for injury or property damage.
Liability coverage pays for things such as attorney fees, pain and suffering, repair costs for stationary objects and court costs. How much liability coverage do you need? That is your choice, but you should buy as much as you can afford.
UM/UIM (Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist) coverage
This provides protection from other drivers when they either are underinsured or have no liability coverage at all. Covered claims include injuries to you and your family as well as your vehicle’s damage.
Since a lot of drivers carry very low liability coverage limits, their limits can quickly be used up. That’s why carrying high Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist coverage is important protection for you and your family. Frequently these limits are identical to your policy’s liability coverage.
