Insurance coverage breakdown

Understanding the coverages of your policy helps when choosing which coverages you need and proper limits and deductibles. The terms used in a policy can be confusing and reading a policy is terribly boring.

Uninsured and underinsured coverage

This coverage protects you and your vehicle from other motorists when they either are underinsured or have no liability coverage at all. Covered claims include hospital bills for your injuries as well as your vehicle’s damage.

Because many people have only the minimum liability required by law, their liability coverage can quickly be exhausted. This is the reason having UM/UIM coverage is a good idea.

Comprehensive coverages

This pays for damage that is not covered by collision coverage. A deductible will apply and then insurance will cover the rest of the damage.

Comprehensive coverage protects against things such as hail damage, hitting a bird, a tree branch falling on your vehicle and rock chips in glass. The highest amount a insurance company will pay at claim time is the cash value of the vehicle, so if your deductible is as high as the vehicle’s value consider dropping full coverage.

Coverage for collisions

This covers damage to your F-250 resulting from a collision with an object or car. You have to pay a deductible then your collision coverage will kick in.

Collision insurance covers things such as rolling your car, sideswiping another vehicle, colliding with a tree, colliding with another moving vehicle and hitting a mailbox. This coverage can be expensive, so analyze the benefit of dropping coverage from vehicles that are 8 years or older. You can also raise the deductible in order to get cheaper collision rates.

Liability insurance

This coverage will cover injuries or damage you cause to other’s property or people in an accident. It consists of three limits, per person bodily injury, per accident bodily injury, and a property damage limit. You commonly see values of 100/300/100 which stand for a $100,000 limit per person for injuries, a total of $300,000 of bodily injury coverage per accident, and $100,000 of coverage for damaged propery.

Liability can pay for claims such as pain and suffering, legal defense fees and bail bonds. The amount of liability coverage you purchase is up to you, but consider buying higher limits if possible.

Coverage for medical payments

Coverage for medical payments and/or PIP provide coverage for bills like surgery, doctor visits and pain medications. The coverages can be utilized in addition to your health insurance program or if you lack health insurance entirely. They cover all vehicle occupants as well as getting struck while a pedestrian. PIP is only offered in select states but can be used in place of medical payments coverage
