Having a good grasp of your policy can help you determine appropriate coverage for your vehicles. Policy terminology can be impossible to understand and coverage can change by endorsement. These are typical coverage types available from insurance companies.
Uninsured and underinsured coverage – This protects you and your vehicle when other motorists are uninsured or don’t have enough coverage. It can pay for hospital bills for your injuries and damage to your Toyota 4Runner.
Since many drivers have only the minimum liability required by law, it doesn’t take a major accident to exceed their coverage limits. This is the reason having UM/UIM coverage is a good idea.
Collision – Collision coverage pays for damage to your 4Runner caused by collision with another car or object. You will need to pay your deductible and the rest of the damage will be paid by collision coverage.
Collision insurance covers claims such as sustaining damage from a pot hole, backing into a parked car and driving through your garage door. Collision coverage makes up a good portion of your premium, so you might think about dropping it from vehicles that are 8 years or older. You can also bump up the deductible to get cheaper collision coverage.
Auto liability insurance – This protects you from damage or injury you incur to other’s property or people by causing an accident. Split limit liability has three limits of coverage: bodily injury per person, bodily injury per accident and property damage. As an example, you may have liability limits of 50/100/50 which stand for $50,000 in coverage for each person’s injuries, $100,000 for the entire accident, and a total limit of $50,000 for damage to vehicles and property.
Liability coverage protects against claims like attorney fees, court costs, pain and suffering and structural damage. How much liability coverage do you need? That is a decision to put some thought into, but it’s cheap coverage so purchase as high a limit as you can afford.
Comprehensive coverages – This coverage will pay to fix damage that is not covered by collision coverage. You first have to pay a deductible then the remaining damage will be covered by your comprehensive coverage.
Comprehensive insurance covers claims like rock chips in glass, hitting a deer, fire damage and theft. The maximum payout you’ll receive from a claim is the cash value of the vehicle, so if the vehicle’s value is low it’s probably time to drop comprehensive insurance.
Coverage for medical payments – Personal Injury Protection (PIP) and medical payments coverage reimburse you for bills for prosthetic devices, ambulance fees, EMT expenses, chiropractic care and doctor visits. They are used to fill the gap from your health insurance program or if you are not covered by health insurance. Coverage applies to all vehicle occupants in addition to being hit by a car walking across the street. Personal injury protection coverage is only offered in select states but it provides additional coverages not offered by medical payments coverage
As you go through the steps to switch your coverage, make sure you don’t sacrifice coverage to reduce premiums. There are many occasions where an insured cut collision coverage and discovered at claim time that the savings was not a smart move. The proper strategy is to buy enough coverage at the best price while not skimping on critical coverages.
