Knowing the specifics of your insurance policy can help you determine the best coverages for your vehicles. The coverage terms in a policy can be ambiguous and coverage can change by endorsement. Shown next are typical coverages found on most insurance policies.
Auto liability – Liability insurance can cover injuries or damage you cause to other’s property or people. This coverage protects you from claims by other people. Liability doesn’t cover your own vehicle damage or injuries.
Liability coverage has three limits: bodily injury for each person injured, bodily injury for the entire accident and a property damage limit. As an example, you may have limits of 100/300/100 that means you have a limit of $100,000 per injured person, a per accident bodily injury limit of $300,000, and property damage coverage for $100,000.
Liability coverage protects against claims such as funeral expenses, structural damage and loss of income. How much liability should you purchase? That is a personal decision, but it’s cheap coverage so purchase as large an amount as possible.
Coverage for medical expenses – Medical payments and Personal Injury Protection insurance reimburse you for expenses like doctor visits, surgery, hospital visits, chiropractic care and rehabilitation expenses. The coverages can be utilized in addition to your health insurance plan or if you lack health insurance entirely. They cover not only the driver but also the vehicle occupants and also covers any family member struck as a pedestrian. Personal injury protection coverage is not an option in every state but can be used in place of medical payments coverage
Coverage for uninsured or underinsured drivers – Uninsured or Underinsured Motorist coverage protects you and your vehicle’s occupants from other motorists when they are uninsured or don’t have enough coverage. It can pay for injuries sustained by your vehicle’s occupants and damage to your Cadillac CTS-V.
Since a lot of drivers only carry the minimum required liability limits, their limits can quickly be used up. For this reason, having high UM/UIM coverages is a good idea.
Comprehensive insurance – This coverage pays to fix your vehicle from damage that is not covered by collision coverage. You first must pay your deductible then your comprehensive coverage will pay.
Comprehensive coverage protects against claims such as a tree branch falling on your vehicle, hitting a bird, hail damage, damage from flooding and rock chips in glass. The most your insurance company will pay is the ACV or actual cash value, so if the vehicle is not worth much consider removing comprehensive coverage.
Collision – Collision coverage covers damage to your CTS-V caused by collision with an object or car. You have to pay a deductible then the remaining damage will be paid by your insurance company.
Collision coverage protects against things such as backing into a parked car, colliding with another moving vehicle and scraping a guard rail. This coverage can be expensive, so consider dropping it from lower value vehicles. Drivers also have the option to raise the deductible to bring the cost down.
