Understanding the coverages of a insurance policy can be of help when determining which coverages you need for your vehicles. The terms used in a policy can be difficult to understand and even agents have difficulty translating policy wording.
Liability auto insurance – Liability insurance can cover damages or injuries you inflict on people or other property in an accident. It protects you against claims from other people. It does not cover damage to your own property or vehicle.
It consists of three limits, bodily injury per person, bodily injury per accident and property damage. You might see limits of 100/300/100 which means $100,000 bodily injury coverage, a per accident bodily injury limit of $300,000, and property damage coverage for $100,000. Alternatively, you may have a combined limit which limits claims to one amount with no separate limits for injury or property damage.
Liability coverage protects against things such as loss of income, repair bills for other people’s vehicles, emergency aid, medical expenses and structural damage. The amount of liability coverage you purchase is a decision to put some thought into, but buy as much as you can afford.
Insurance for medical payments – Med pay and PIP coverage kick in for immediate expenses like surgery, X-ray expenses, ambulance fees and dental work. They are often used in conjunction with a health insurance policy or if you are not covered by health insurance. They cover both the driver and occupants as well as if you are hit as a while walking down the street. PIP coverage is not universally available and gives slightly broader coverage than med pay
Collision coverage – This coverage will pay to fix damage to your Explorer resulting from a collision 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 things like hitting a mailbox, backing into a parked car and damaging your car on a curb. Collision is rather expensive coverage, so you might think about dropping it from vehicles that are 8 years or older. You can also increase the deductible to get cheaper collision coverage.
Uninsured Motorist or Underinsured Motorist insurance – Your UM/UIM coverage provides protection when other motorists either are underinsured or have no liability coverage at all. Covered losses include injuries sustained by your vehicle’s occupants as well as your vehicle’s damage.
Since a lot of drivers carry very low liability coverage limits, it doesn’t take a major accident to exceed their coverage limits. For this reason, having high UM/UIM coverages is important protection for you and your family. Most of the time these limits are identical to your policy’s liability coverage.
Comprehensive coverage (or Other than Collision) – Comprehensive insurance coverage pays for damage that is not covered by collision coverage. A deductible will apply then the remaining damage will be covered by your comprehensive coverage.
Comprehensive coverage protects against things such as fire damage, hitting a deer, damage from flooding and damage from getting keyed. The maximum amount your insurance company will pay is the ACV or actual cash value, so if your deductible is as high as the vehicle’s value it’s probably time to drop comprehensive insurance.
As you shop your coverage around, don’t be tempted to reduce coverage to reduce premium. In many cases, an insured cut liability limits or collision coverage only to regret that it was a big error on their part. Your strategy should be to get the best coverage possible at an affordable rate while not skimping on critical coverages.
