Learning about specific coverages of auto insurance aids in choosing the right coverages at the best deductibles and correct limits. The coverage terms in a policy can be difficult to understand and nobody wants to actually read their policy. Below you’ll find typical coverages offered by auto insurance companies.
Comprehensive auto coverage
This will pay to fix damage from a wide range of events other than collision. You first must pay your deductible then the remaining damage will be covered by your comprehensive coverage.
Comprehensive coverage protects against claims like rock chips in glass, falling objects, theft and a tree branch falling on your vehicle. The most you can receive from a comprehensive claim is the actual cash value, so if the vehicle is not worth much consider removing comprehensive coverage.
UM/UIM (Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist) coverage
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. Covered claims include hospital bills for your injuries and also any damage incurred to your Lexus LX 570.
Since a lot of drivers have only the minimum liability required by law, it only takes a small accident to exceed their coverage. That’s why carrying high Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist coverage should not be overlooked.
Collision coverage protection
Collision coverage pays to fix your vehicle from damage resulting from colliding with an object or car. You will need to pay your deductible and then insurance will cover the remainder.
Collision insurance covers things like colliding with a tree, scraping a guard rail and crashing into a ditch. This coverage can be expensive, so consider dropping it from vehicles that are older. Drivers also have the option to increase the deductible in order to get cheaper collision rates.
Auto liability insurance
This coverage protects you from damages or injuries you inflict on people or other property by causing an accident. This coverage protects you from legal claims by others, and doesn’t cover your own vehicle damage or injuries.
Coverage consists of three different limits, bodily injury per person, bodily injury per accident and property damage. As an example, you may have limits of 100/300/100 that means you have $100,000 in coverage for each person’s injuries, a per accident bodily injury limit of $300,000, and a limit of $100,000 paid for damaged property.
Liability insurance covers claims such as structural damage, attorney fees, pain and suffering and funeral expenses. How much coverage you buy is your choice, but it’s cheap coverage so purchase higher limits if possible.
Medical payments and PIP coverage
Coverage for medical payments and/or PIP provide coverage for expenses such as pain medications, EMT expenses and ambulance fees. The coverages can be used in conjunction with a health insurance program or if there is no health insurance coverage. It covers all vehicle occupants and also covers being hit by a car walking across the street. Personal injury protection coverage is not an option in every state but it provides additional coverages not offered by medical payments coverage
