Understanding the coverages of a auto insurance policy can help you determine appropriate coverage at the best deductibles and correct limits. Auto insurance terms can be ambiguous and coverage can change by endorsement. Below you’ll find typical coverages found on the average auto insurance policy.
Auto liability insurance – This coverage protects you from damages or injuries you inflict on people or other property. This coverage protects you against other people’s claims. It does not cover your injuries or vehicle damage.
It consists of three limits, per person bodily injury, per accident bodily injury, and a property damage limit. Your policy might show values of 25/50/25 which means $25,000 bodily injury coverage, a total of $50,000 of bodily injury coverage per accident, and $25,000 of coverage for damaged propery. Some companies may use a combined limit which combines the three limits into one amount with no separate limits for injury or property damage.
Liability insurance covers claims like medical expenses, attorney fees and bail bonds. The amount of liability coverage you purchase is your choice, but it’s cheap coverage so purchase higher limits if possible.
Medical costs insurance – Med pay and PIP coverage provide coverage for expenses such as funeral costs, rehabilitation expenses and surgery. The coverages can be used to cover expenses not covered by your health insurance policy or if you lack health insurance entirely. Coverage applies to both the driver and occupants and will also cover any family member struck as a pedestrian. PIP coverage is not available in all states but can be used in place of medical payments coverage
Comprehensive or Other Than Collision – This pays for damage from a wide range of events other than collision. A deductible will apply then your comprehensive coverage will pay.
Comprehensive coverage pays for claims like a tree branch falling on your vehicle, theft and damage from flooding. The maximum payout your auto insurance company will pay is the ACV or actual cash value, so if it’s not worth much more than your deductible it’s not worth carrying full coverage.
UM/UIM Coverage – This coverage gives you protection from other drivers when they either are underinsured or have no liability coverage at all. Covered losses include injuries sustained by your vehicle’s occupants and also any damage incurred to your 2018 Dodge Charger.
Since a lot of drivers only carry the minimum required liability limits, their limits can quickly be used up. That’s why carrying high Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist coverage should not be overlooked. Usually these coverages are identical to your policy’s liability coverage.
Collision coverages – This coverage covers damage to your Charger resulting from colliding with another vehicle or an object, but not an animal. You first must pay a deductible then your collision coverage will kick in.
Collision coverage pays for claims like sustaining damage from a pot hole, rolling your car, colliding with another moving vehicle, crashing into a building and sideswiping another vehicle. Collision coverage makes up a good portion of your premium, so analyze the benefit of dropping coverage from older vehicles. You can also bump up the deductible to save money on collision insurance.
