Understanding the coverages of a car insurance policy aids in choosing the right coverages at the best deductibles and correct limits. The terms used in a policy can be ambiguous and reading a policy is terribly boring.
Coverage for uninsured or underinsured drivers
Your UM/UIM coverage protects you and your vehicle’s occupants when other motorists either are underinsured or have no liability coverage at all. This coverage pays for injuries to you and your family and also any damage incurred to your Mazda 5.
Since many drivers have only the minimum liability required by law, their liability coverage can quickly be exhausted. This is the reason having UM/UIM coverage is important protection for you and your family. Most of the time these coverages do not exceed the liability coverage limits.
This covers damage to your 5 resulting from a collision with another vehicle or an object, but not an animal. You have to pay a deductible then the remaining damage will be paid by your insurance company.
Collision can pay for things like driving through your garage door, scraping a guard rail, hitting a parking meter and colliding with another moving vehicle. This coverage can be expensive, so analyze the benefit of dropping coverage from older vehicles. Drivers also have the option to choose a higher deductible to get cheaper collision coverage.
Comprehensive car insurance
This coverage pays for damage OTHER than collision with another vehicle or object. You first have to pay a deductible and then insurance will cover the rest of the damage.
Comprehensive insurance covers things such as damage from flooding, rock chips in glass and falling objects. The maximum payout a car insurance company will pay at claim time is the cash value of the vehicle, so if the vehicle is not worth much it’s probably time to drop comprehensive insurance.
This coverage protects you from damage that occurs to a person or their property. It protects YOU from legal claims by others, and does not provide coverage for damage sustained by your vehicle in an accident.
Liability coverage has three limits: bodily injury per person, bodily injury per accident and property damage. As an example, you may have liability limits of 50/100/50 that means you have a limit of $50,000 per injured person, $100,000 for the entire accident, and $50,000 of coverage for damaged propery. Some companies may use a combined limit which limits claims to one amount with no separate limits for injury or property damage.
Liability can pay for claims such as legal defense fees, bail bonds and loss of income. How much liability coverage do you need? That is a decision to put some thought into, but buy as large an amount as possible.
Coverage for medical expenses
Medical payments and Personal Injury Protection insurance provide coverage for short-term medical expenses for doctor visits, nursing services, X-ray expenses and pain medications. They are used in conjunction with a health insurance policy or if there is no health insurance coverage. Coverage applies to you and your occupants in addition to any family member struck as a pedestrian. PIP is not available in all states and may carry a deductible
