Having a good grasp of a insurance policy can be of help when determining appropriate coverage for your vehicles. The terms used in a policy can be impossible to understand and coverage can change by endorsement. Shown next are typical coverage types available from insurance companies.
Liability auto insurance
This coverage can cover damage or injury you incur to people or other property that is your fault. This coverage protects you from legal claims by others, and does not provide coverage for damage sustained by your vehicle in an accident.
Coverage consists of three different limits, per person bodily injury, per accident bodily injury, and a property damage limit. You commonly see values of 50/100/50 that translate to a $50,000 limit per person for injuries, a per accident bodily injury limit of $100,000, and $50,000 of coverage for damaged propery. Occasionally you may see a combined limit that pays claims from the same limit without having the split limit caps.
Liability coverage pays for claims like pain and suffering, structural damage and repair bills for other people’s vehicles. How much liability should you purchase? That is up to you, but consider buying higher limits if possible.
This pays for damage to your Jimmy from colliding with another car or object. You have to pay a deductible then the remaining damage will be paid by your insurance company.
Collision insurance covers things such as crashing into a building, colliding with another moving vehicle, crashing into a ditch and scraping a guard rail. This coverage can be expensive, so analyze the benefit of dropping coverage from lower value vehicles. You can also raise the deductible in order to get cheaper collision rates.
UM/UIM (Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist) coverage
Your UM/UIM coverage provides protection from other motorists when they do not carry enough liability coverage. Covered losses include hospital bills for your injuries as well as damage to your 1991 GMC Jimmy.
Since a lot of drivers carry very low liability coverage limits, their liability coverage can quickly be exhausted. This is the reason having UM/UIM coverage is very important. Most of the time these limits are set the same as your liablity limits.
Comprehensive auto coverage
This pays for damage caused by mother nature, theft, vandalism and other events. You first must pay your deductible then your comprehensive coverage will pay.
Comprehensive coverage protects against claims such as falling objects, vandalism and hail damage. The highest amount you can receive from a comprehensive claim is the actual cash value, so if the vehicle is not worth much consider removing comprehensive coverage.
Medical payments and PIP coverage
Coverage for medical payments and/or PIP pay for expenses such as EMT expenses, funeral costs, surgery, hospital visits and ambulance fees. The coverages can be used to cover expenses not covered by your health insurance plan or if you are not covered by health insurance. It covers you and your occupants in addition to getting struck while a pedestrian. Personal Injury Protection is not an option in every state but can be used in place of medical payments coverage
