Having a good grasp of insurance can help you determine appropriate coverage for your vehicles. The terms used in a policy can be confusing and even agents have difficulty translating policy wording. Below you’ll find typical coverage types available from insurance companies.
Medical payments coverage and PIP
Med pay and PIP coverage provide coverage for immediate expenses for things like pain medications, funeral costs and ambulance fees. They are often used to fill the gap from your health insurance plan or if you lack health insurance entirely. Medical payments and PIP cover all vehicle occupants and also covers if you are hit as a while walking down the street. PIP is not universally available and gives slightly broader coverage than med pay
Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist coverage
This coverage protects you and your vehicle’s occupants when other motorists either have no liability insurance or not enough. Covered losses include hospital bills for your injuries and also any damage incurred to your 1991 Chevy C/K 2500 Series.
Due to the fact that many drivers only carry the minimum required liability limits, it doesn’t take a major accident to exceed their coverage limits. This is the reason having UM/UIM coverage should not be overlooked.
Liability insurance protects you from damage that occurs to other’s property or people in an accident. It protects you from claims by other people. It does not cover damage to your own property or vehicle.
It consists of three limits, bodily injury per person, bodily injury per accident and property damage. You might see limits of 100/300/100 which stand for $100,000 bodily injury coverage, $300,000 for the entire accident, and property damage coverage for $100,000.
Liability coverage protects against things like pain and suffering, loss of income, medical expenses and emergency aid. The amount of liability coverage you purchase is a decision to put some thought into, but buy as much as you can afford.
This will pay to fix damage to your C/K 2500 Series resulting from a collision with another vehicle or an object, but not an animal. A deductible applies and then insurance will cover the remainder.
Collision can pay for things such as colliding with a tree, colliding with another moving vehicle, scraping a guard rail and driving through your garage door. This coverage can be expensive, so consider dropping it from older vehicles. It’s also possible to increase the deductible to bring the cost down.
Comprehensive insurance will pay to fix damage OTHER than collision with another vehicle or object. You first must pay your deductible and the remainder of the damage will be paid by comprehensive coverage.
Comprehensive coverage pays for things such as a broken windshield, vandalism, a tree branch falling on your vehicle and rock chips in glass. The highest amount you’ll receive from a claim is the cash value of the vehicle, so if your deductible is as high as the vehicle’s value it’s not worth carrying full coverage.
