Learning about specific coverages of your insurance policy can help you determine the best coverages at the best deductibles and correct limits. Insurance terms can be impossible to understand and coverage can change by endorsement. Listed below are the usual coverages offered by insurance companies.
Comprehensive coverage (or Other than Collision)
Comprehensive insurance pays to fix your vehicle from damage that is not covered by collision coverage. You need to pay your deductible first and the remainder of the damage will be paid by comprehensive coverage.
Comprehensive coverage pays for things like vandalism, rock chips in glass, fire damage, a broken windshield and theft. The maximum amount a insurance company will pay at claim time is the market value of your vehicle, so if the vehicle’s value is low consider removing comprehensive coverage.
Auto liability insurance
This coverage will cover damage that occurs to a person or their property by causing an accident. It protects you against other people’s claims. It does not cover your own vehicle damage or injuries.
Coverage consists of three different limits, per person bodily injury, per accident bodily injury, and a property damage limit. As an example, you may have limits of 25/50/25 which stand for $25,000 bodily injury coverage, a total of $50,000 of bodily injury coverage per accident, and property damage coverage for $25,000.
Liability can pay for things such as court costs, pain and suffering, attorney fees, medical expenses and bail bonds. The amount of liability coverage you purchase is your choice, but it’s cheap coverage so purchase higher limits if possible.
Collision coverage will pay to fix damage to your Murano resulting from a collision with another vehicle or an object, but not an animal. You will need to pay your deductible then the remaining damage will be paid by your insurance company.
Collision insurance covers claims like crashing into a ditch, colliding with a tree, hitting a mailbox and damaging your car on a curb. This coverage can be expensive, so consider removing coverage from older vehicles. Drivers also have the option to increase the deductible to save money on collision insurance.
Uninsured Motorist or Underinsured Motorist insurance
Your UM/UIM coverage provides protection from other motorists when they are uninsured or don’t have enough coverage. Covered claims include injuries sustained by your vehicle’s occupants as well as your vehicle’s damage.
Because many people only purchase the least amount of liability that is required, it only takes a small accident to exceed their coverage. This is the reason having UM/UIM coverage is a good idea.
Insurance for medical payments
Coverage for medical payments and/or PIP pay for short-term medical expenses for things like ambulance fees, nursing services and doctor visits. They are utilized in addition to your health insurance program or if there is no health insurance coverage. It covers not only the driver but also the vehicle occupants and also covers if you are hit as a while walking down the street. Personal Injury Protection is not an option in every state but can be used in place of medical payments coverage
