Medical expense insurance – Med pay and PIP coverage reimburse you for bills such as nursing services, ambulance fees, chiropractic care and dental work. They are often utilized in addition to your health insurance policy or if you are not covered by health insurance. It covers all vehicle occupants as well as if you are hit as a while walking down the street. Personal injury protection coverage is only offered in select states and gives slightly broader coverage than med pay
Collision coverage – Collision insurance will pay to fix damage to your Pickup resulting from colliding with another vehicle or an object, but not an animal. A deductible applies then the remaining damage will be paid by your insurance company.
Collision insurance covers claims like backing into a parked car, driving through your garage door and crashing into a building. Paying for collision coverage can be pricey, so consider dropping it from lower value vehicles. You can also increase the deductible to bring the cost down.
Protection from uninsured/underinsured drivers – This coverage provides protection from other drivers when they either have no liability insurance or not enough. Covered claims include injuries sustained by your vehicle’s occupants and also any damage incurred to your Isuzu Pickup.
Because many people carry very low liability coverage limits, it only takes a small accident to exceed their coverage. For this reason, having high UM/UIM coverages is important protection for you and your family.
Coverage for liability – Liability insurance protects you from damage or injury you incur to other’s property or people that is your fault. It protects YOU from claims by other people, and doesn’t cover 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 limits of 50/100/50 which means $50,000 in coverage for each person’s injuries, $100,000 for the entire accident, and property damage coverage for $50,000.
Liability insurance covers claims like repair bills for other people’s vehicles, loss of income, legal defense fees and emergency aid. How much liability coverage do you need? That is up to you, but consider buying as high a limit as you can afford.
Comprehensive (Other than Collision) – Comprehensive insurance pays for damage that is not covered by collision coverage. You first must pay your deductible and the remainder of the damage will be paid by comprehensive coverage.
Comprehensive coverage pays for claims like damage from a tornado or hurricane, vandalism, hail damage, theft and fire damage. The maximum amount your insurance company will pay is the market value of your vehicle, so if the vehicle’s value is low it’s not worth carrying full coverage.
