Learning about specific coverages of your car insurance policy can be of help when determining appropriate coverage and the correct deductibles and limits. Car insurance terms can be ambiguous and reading a policy is terribly boring. Below you’ll find the usual coverages found on the average car insurance policy.
Collision insurance pays for damage to your Routan resulting from a collision with another car or object. You first must pay a deductible then your collision coverage will kick in.
Collision insurance covers claims such as backing into a parked car, hitting a mailbox and crashing into a building. Collision coverage makes up a good portion of your premium, so consider removing coverage from lower value vehicles. You can also choose a higher deductible to save money on collision insurance.
Protection from uninsured/underinsured drivers
This gives you protection when other motorists do not carry enough liability coverage. Covered claims include hospital bills for your injuries as well as damage to your Volkswagen Routan.
Because many people only purchase the least amount of liability that is required, it only takes a small accident to exceed their coverage. This is the reason having UM/UIM coverage is important protection for you and your family.
Comprehensive (Other than Collision)
Comprehensive insurance coverage covers damage from a wide range of events other than collision. You need to pay your deductible first then the remaining damage will be covered by your comprehensive coverage.
Comprehensive coverage protects against things like hitting a bird, theft, vandalism and damage from flooding. The maximum amount you can receive from a comprehensive claim is the market value of your vehicle, so if it’s not worth much more than your deductible it’s probably time to drop comprehensive insurance.
Auto liability insurance
This will cover damage that occurs to people or other property in an accident. This insurance protects YOU from legal claims by others, and does not provide coverage for damage sustained by your vehicle in an accident.
It consists of three limits, per person bodily injury, per accident bodily injury, and a property damage limit. You might see liability limits of 50/100/50 that translate to 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 things like emergency aid, repair costs for stationary objects, loss of income, bail bonds and legal defense fees. How much coverage you buy is up to you, but buy higher limits if possible.
Medical expense insurance
Med pay and PIP coverage provide coverage for expenses such as hospital visits, nursing services and doctor visits. The coverages can be utilized in addition to your health insurance policy or if there is no health insurance coverage. It covers both the driver and occupants and also covers if you are hit as a while walking down the street. PIP is not an option in every state but can be used in place of medical payments coverage
