Protection from uninsured/underinsured drivers
Your UM/UIM coverage protects you and your vehicle from other drivers when they do not carry enough liability coverage. It can pay for injuries to you and your family as well as damage to your Lincoln Town Car.
Because many people have only the minimum liability required by law, their liability coverage can quickly be exhausted. That’s why carrying high Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist coverage is a good idea. Most of the time your uninsured/underinsured motorist coverages are set the same as your liablity limits.
Medical expense insurance
Coverage for medical payments and/or PIP pay for expenses like dental work, prosthetic devices and rehabilitation expenses. They are often used in conjunction with a health insurance policy or if you do not have health coverage. They cover not only the driver but also the vehicle occupants in addition to getting struck while a pedestrian. Personal Injury Protection is not an option in every state and gives slightly broader coverage than med pay
This coverage covers damage to your Town Car resulting from a collision with an object or car. You first must pay a deductible and then insurance will cover the remainder.
Collision can pay for claims like driving through your garage door, damaging your car on a curb and crashing into a building. Paying for collision coverage can be pricey, so consider removing coverage from lower value vehicles. It’s also possible to choose a higher deductible to save money on collision insurance.
Comprehensive (Other than Collision)
Comprehensive insurance coverage covers damage OTHER than collision with another vehicle or object. You first have to pay a deductible and then insurance will cover the rest of the damage.
Comprehensive coverage protects against things such as hail damage, a tree branch falling on your vehicle, vandalism and fire damage. The most you can receive from a comprehensive claim is the cash value of the vehicle, so if your deductible is as high as the vehicle’s value consider dropping full coverage.
This coverage can cover damage or injury you incur to a person or their property. It protects you against other people’s claims, and does not provide coverage for your own vehicle damage or injuries.
Liability coverage has three limits: bodily injury for each person injured, bodily injury for the entire accident and a property damage limit. As an example, you may have values of 25/50/25 which stand for a $25,000 limit per person for injuries, a per accident bodily injury limit of $50,000, and $25,000 of coverage for damaged propery. Alternatively, you may have a combined limit that pays claims from the same limit and claims can be made without the split limit restrictions.
Liability can pay for claims like loss of income, repair costs for stationary objects and emergency aid. The amount of liability coverage you purchase is a personal decision, but it’s cheap coverage so purchase higher limits if possible.
In this article, we covered a lot of techniques to lower your 1991 Lincoln Town Car insurance rates. The key thing to remember is the more rate comparisons you have, the better your chances of lowering your rates. You may even find the best price on insurance is with some of the lesser-known companies.

When trying to cut insurance costs, make sure you don’t reduce coverage to reduce premium. In too many instances, an insured dropped liability coverage limits only to regret they didn’t have enough coverage. Your strategy should be to purchase a proper amount of coverage at an affordable rate, not the least amount of coverage.
