Information about specific coverages

Learning about specific coverages of auto insurance can help you determine which coverages you need for your vehicles. The coverage terms in a policy can be difficult to understand and nobody wants to actually read their policy.

Coverage for liability – Liability coverage provides protection from damages or injuries you inflict on a person or their property that is your fault. It protects YOU against other people’s claims, and doesn’t cover your own vehicle damage or injuries.

Coverage consists of three different limits, bodily injury for each person injured, bodily injury for the entire accident and a property damage limit. You commonly see policy limits of 25/50/25 that means you have $25,000 in coverage for each person’s injuries, a limit of $50,000 in injury protection per accident, and a limit of $25,000 paid for damaged property.

Liability coverage pays for things such as structural damage, repair costs for stationary objects, loss of income and bail bonds. How much liability coverage do you need? That is a personal decision, but consider buying as high a limit as you can afford.

Insurance for medical payments – Personal Injury Protection (PIP) and medical payments coverage reimburse you for immediate expenses for ambulance fees, pain medications and rehabilitation expenses. The coverages can be used to fill the gap from your health insurance policy or if there is no health insurance coverage. Coverage applies to all vehicle occupants and also covers being hit by a car walking across the street. Personal injury protection coverage is not universally available but can be used in place of medical payments coverage

Comprehensive coverage (or Other than Collision) – This covers damage OTHER than collision with another vehicle or object. A deductible will apply and then insurance will cover the rest of the damage.

Comprehensive coverage protects against things like damage from flooding, a tree branch falling on your vehicle, hitting a bird, falling objects and damage from getting keyed. The maximum amount you’ll receive from a claim is the cash value of the vehicle, so if it’s not worth much more than your deductible consider dropping full coverage.

Collision coverage – This coverage pays for damage to your SRX from colliding with another car or object. You will need to pay your deductible and then insurance will cover the remainder.

Collision insurance covers things such as sustaining damage from a pot hole, driving through your garage door, damaging your car on a curb, backing into a parked car and hitting a parking meter. This coverage can be expensive, so analyze the benefit of dropping coverage from vehicles that are 8 years or older. You can also bump up the deductible in order to get cheaper collision rates.

Uninsured Motorist or Underinsured Motorist insurance – Uninsured or Underinsured Motorist coverage protects you and your vehicle’s occupants when the “other guys” are uninsured or don’t have enough coverage. This coverage pays for injuries sustained by your vehicle’s occupants and damage to your 2011 Cadillac SRX.

Since many drivers only carry the minimum required liability limits, it only takes a small accident to exceed their coverage. For this reason, having high UM/UIM coverages is a good idea.
