Learning about specific coverages of your insurance policy can be of help when determining the best coverages and proper limits and deductibles. The coverage terms in a policy can be ambiguous and reading a policy is terribly boring. These are the usual coverages available from insurance companies.
Auto liability insurance – This coverage provides protection from injuries or damage you cause to other’s property or people that is your fault. It protects you against claims from other people. It does not cover your injuries or vehicle damage.
Coverage consists of three different limits, bodily injury for each person, bodily injury for the entire accident, and a limit for property damage. As an example, you may have values of 25/50/25 that means you have $25,000 bodily injury coverage, a limit of $50,000 in injury protection per accident, and $25,000 of coverage for damaged propery.
Liability coverage pays for claims such as medical expenses, bail bonds, pain and suffering and structural damage. The amount of liability coverage you purchase is your choice, but it’s cheap coverage so purchase as much as you can afford.
Insurance for medical payments – Coverage for medical payments and/or PIP reimburse you for short-term medical expenses for X-ray expenses, nursing services, pain medications and chiropractic care. They are used in conjunction with a health insurance plan or if you lack health insurance entirely. Coverage applies to not only the driver but also the vehicle occupants and also covers getting struck while a pedestrian. Personal injury protection coverage is not available in all states but it provides additional coverages not offered by medical payments coverage
Collision – This coverage will pay to fix damage to your Sonoma resulting from a collision with another vehicle or an object, but not an animal. You have to pay a deductible then the remaining damage will be paid by your insurance company.
Collision can pay for things like sideswiping another vehicle, colliding with a tree, driving through your garage door and rolling your car. Collision is rather expensive coverage, so analyze the benefit of dropping coverage from vehicles that are 8 years or older. It’s also possible to raise the deductible in order to get cheaper collision rates.
Uninsured Motorist or Underinsured Motorist insurance – This coverage gives you protection when the “other guys” are uninsured or don’t have enough coverage. Covered losses include medical payments for you and your occupants and damage to your GMC Sonoma.
Since a lot of drivers only purchase the least amount of liability that is required, their liability coverage can quickly be exhausted. So UM/UIM coverage is important protection for you and your family.
Comprehensive coverage (or Other than Collision) – Comprehensive insurance will pay to fix damage from a wide range of events other than collision. You first have to pay a deductible then your comprehensive coverage will pay.
Comprehensive insurance covers claims like falling objects, hitting a deer, fire damage and hail damage. The maximum amount a insurance company will pay at claim time is the cash value of the vehicle, so if the vehicle’s value is low consider removing comprehensive coverage.
