Understanding the coverages of insurance can help you determine the right coverages and proper limits and deductibles. The coverage terms in a policy can be ambiguous and nobody wants to actually read their policy. These are the normal coverages available from insurance companies.
Comprehensive auto coverage
Comprehensive insurance coverage pays to fix your vehicle from damage that is not covered by collision coverage. A deductible will apply and then insurance will cover the rest of the damage.
Comprehensive insurance covers things like hail damage, damage from getting keyed and falling objects. The highest amount a insurance company will pay at claim time is the cash value of the vehicle, so if it’s not worth much more than your deductible consider dropping full coverage.
Auto liability insurance
This can cover damage that occurs to a person or their property. It protects you from claims by other people. It does not cover damage sustained by your vehicle in an accident.
Liability coverage has three limits: per person bodily injury, per accident bodily injury, and a property damage limit. You commonly see liability limits of 100/300/100 that means you have $100,000 bodily injury coverage, a per accident bodily injury limit of $300,000, and a total limit of $100,000 for damage to vehicles and property.
Liability coverage pays for things like repair costs for stationary objects, emergency aid and medical expenses. The amount of liability coverage you purchase is up to you, but consider buying as much as you can afford.
Collision coverage protection
This covers damage to your IS F resulting from colliding with an object or car. You first must pay a deductible then the remaining damage will be paid by your insurance company.
Collision can pay for claims such as driving through your garage door, rolling your car, hitting a mailbox, colliding with another moving vehicle and scraping a guard rail. Collision coverage makes up a good portion of your premium, so analyze the benefit of dropping coverage from older vehicles. It’s also possible to choose a higher deductible in order to get cheaper collision rates.
Medical payments and PIP coverage
Medical payments and Personal Injury Protection insurance kick in for bills such as funeral costs, ambulance fees and nursing services. The coverages can be used in conjunction with a health insurance plan or if there is no health insurance coverage. It covers both the driver and occupants as well as any family member struck as a pedestrian. PIP coverage is only offered in select states but can be used in place of medical payments coverage
UM/UIM (Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist) coverage
This coverage protects you and your vehicle’s occupants from other drivers when they either have no liability insurance or not enough. It can pay for medical payments for you and your occupants and also any damage incurred to your Lexus IS F.
Since many drivers only carry the minimum required liability limits, their liability coverage can quickly be exhausted. So UM/UIM coverage is very important.
When trying to cut insurance costs, it’s not a good idea to reduce needed coverages to save money. There have been many situations where someone dropped collision coverage and learned later that a couple dollars of savings turned into a financial nightmare. Your aim should be to find the BEST coverage at an affordable rate while still protecting your assets.
