It’s a good habit to compare rates every six months due to the fact that insurance rates are constantly changing.

Learning about specific coverages of a insurance policy can be of help when determining the best coverages for your vehicles. The coverage terms in a policy can be ambiguous and nobody wants to actually read their policy. These are the usual coverages offered by insurance companies.
Your UM/UIM coverage provides protection when the “other guys” do not carry enough liability coverage. This coverage pays for injuries sustained by your vehicle’s occupants as well as damage to your 1992 Cadillac Eldorado.
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.
This coverage covers damage that is not covered by collision coverage. A deductible will apply and the remainder of the damage will be paid by comprehensive coverage.
Comprehensive insurance covers things like falling objects, theft and a broken windshield. The maximum amount you can receive from a comprehensive claim is the ACV or actual cash value, so if it’s not worth much more than your deductible it’s not worth carrying full coverage.
Coverage for medical payments and/or PIP reimburse you for short-term medical expenses like chiropractic care, hospital visits, EMT expenses, prosthetic devices and dental work. They are often used in conjunction with a health insurance plan or if there is no health insurance coverage. They cover all vehicle occupants in addition to getting struck while a pedestrian. Personal injury protection coverage is not available in all states and gives slightly broader coverage than med pay
Liability insurance provides protection from damages or injuries you inflict on people or other property that is your fault. It protects YOU against other people’s claims, and does not provide coverage for damage to your own property or vehicle.
Coverage consists of three different limits, bodily injury per person, bodily injury per accident and property damage. As an example, you may have limits of 100/300/100 that translate to a $100,000 limit per person for injuries, a limit of $300,000 in injury protection per accident, and property damage coverage for $100,000.
Liability coverage pays for things such as emergency aid, loss of income, medical expenses and structural damage. How much liability coverage do you need? That is a decision to put some thought into, but it’s cheap coverage so purchase higher limits if possible.
This pays for damage to your Eldorado resulting from colliding with another car or object. You first must pay a deductible and then insurance will cover the remainder.
Collision coverage protects against things such as damaging your car on a curb, driving through your garage door and colliding with another moving vehicle. This coverage can be expensive, so consider dropping it from lower value vehicles. Drivers also have the option to choose a higher deductible to bring the cost down.
